This comes via our friends over at Bleeding Cool.
BC reports that Warner Bros. is in the process of hiring writers to pen a Hawkman movie -- with the Carter Hall version, most likely.
There is a published logline which gives a brief description of what they are looking for:
Part INDIANA JONES/DA VINCI CODE, part GHOST tentpole about the fictional superhero that appears in D.C. Comic books. He used archaic weaponry and large, artificial wings attached to a harness made of the Nth metal that allows flight. Most incarnations of Hawkman work closely with a partner/romantic interest named Hawkgirl or Hawkwoman in his fight against supervillains. Based on the DC comic.
Fans of Smallville will recognize the character of Carter Hall, as that was the Hawkman present in the JSA episodes portrayed by Michael Shanks, who I felt did a wonderful job.
In the comics, Hall is the reincarnated Prince Khufu who is an archaeologist (hence the Indiana Jones reference above), that regains his memories and becomes Hawkman, based on the Egyptian god Horus. Similarly, the love of his life, Chay-Ara, regains her memories and becomes Hawkgirl, an archaeologist by the name of Shiera Saunders.
Interestingly enough, as Hall was a founding member of the JSA, he also was a member of the Justice League of America for a time.
Warner Bros. Studio President Jeff Robinov has stated there to be a Justice League movie coming in 2013 with a new Batman and Superman (maybe even a new GL). Could the Hawkman movie be tieing into that?
Or could we first see Hawkman in action in the 2013 Justice League movie with a Hawman movie spinning off that?
Regardless if it has ties to the JL movie or not, hopefully this new Hawkman movie -- isn't one for the birds.
