Black Adam Set photos reveal Hawkman costume and Dwayne Johnson costume’s new look
And we didn’t even mention Aldis Hodge (The invisible Man), who will bring the future JLA member Hawkman to life in the film. Arguably the most prominent DC character in this movie along with Black Adam himself, Hawkman is Carter Hall, an archaeologist who is the reincarnation of an Egyptian prince.
All of this brings us to the latest leaked photos of all of Black adam, which not only reveals a better look at Johnson’s Black Adam costume, but also our first look at Hawkman’s extremely precise helmet and armor. You can check out the images below:
Yes, it is indeed a hell of a helmet. It is clear that Warner Bros. makes every effort to present these characters to a general audience that may not know them. Cool costumes are a good start, but ultimately it’ll be the writing and performing that will have to sell these comic book icons.
Hodge has previously spoken about the responsibility of not only being true to the comic book version of Hawkman, but also bringing a new black superhero to the screen.
“I think about the representation aspect of that, because I didn’t grow up watching superheroes who look like me.” He explains: “I remember that in my early teens we might have gone into [African-American heroes] Spawn and Blade, and that was awesome. So knowing that young kids are going to be able to see that and see opportunities, and have an awareness that I didn’t have at a young age of what they can accomplish is really fantastic.
We can’t wait to see Hodge, Johnson, and the rest of this hero cast when Black adam (directed by Jaume Collet-Serra) hits theaters on July 29, 2022.
