DC’s Geoff Johns says a Hitman TV series is ‘being talked about’

January 14th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Well, well, well…  in a world that has DC shows such as Preacher, I, Zombie, Gotham, Arrow and many others we shouldn’t be surprised to hear of new possible shows bit this one, oh my this one excites us so very much!

This weekend at the DC in D.C. event, DC’s President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns was asked if it was possible we may see a Hitman series and, while he seemed a little caught off guard, he eventually responded that “anything can happen”.

Then he hesitantly added: “[yes] we are talking about Hitman.”

Tommy Monaghan is a Gotham City hitman with superpowers. During the Bloodlines event he was bitten by a parasite that unlocked his metahuman abilities, giving him telepathy and x-ray vision. Despite his high body count, he has a deep personal code of honor. Hitman was created by Garth Ennis and John McCrea. (DC Wiki)

What is interesting is what exactly that means? There are many possibilities for Hitman at this stage, but given that he operates in a universe full of superheroes – in fact, it’s where much of his humour and situations come from – we’d doubt a standalone series is likely: that means he would fit well into The CW universe with Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, the Legends and more, heck ,John Constantine is in there!

However, DC are planning on launching their own streaming service soon with Titans front-lining, so he could well fit in there too.

Wherever he appears, if he ever does, we’ll be looking forward to seeing his adventures on screen.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
