Black Adam’s upcoming release will be introducing multiple new characters. Hawkman, Doctor Fate, and Atom Smasher are a few of them. Once the movie is out for the world to see, the question of what would happen next to the story and the characters involved is raised. The introduction of multiple characters gives room for the DCEU and Warner Bros. Discovery to create new projects for these characters in extending their universe further.
According to sources, a Black Adam spinoff is already in the works with the winged superhero Hawkman. Although initial hinting had been about Atom Smasher getting his own story, by the looks of it, Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman is first in line for that.
Black Adam Sets Up Hawkman’s Story
The movie sees the individual story of every character within Black Adam, including Hawkman, he comes to terms with gaining faith back in heroism and humanity as well as the Justice Society of America. Hawkman, played by Aldis Hodge is known to always fight alongside his partner, Hawkgirl, who happens to be missing from the movie.
“It would be amazing, but her not being there is intentional. We have room to grow, so however we are allowed to go further and we can explore different avenues, hopefully, that is one of the avenues that we do get to touch on. But everything has a meaning and a purpose.”
The actor stated how Hawkgirl was not in the film intentionally, meaning that WBD and DCEU already have plans for the hero to appear and for the duo to take on the skies. The hero had originally been a part of the movie’s Justice Society of America but, had later been removed for reasons unknown to the audience as of now.
The DCEU’s Future For Black Adam And The Characters In It
Initial hinting by Noah Centineo about an Atom Smasher spinoff would now have to take a seat because as of now, only a Hawkman project seems to be in the works. Black Adam has introduced characters as well as brought back characters, mainly Henry Cavill’s Superman. It set up bigger stories for each of these characters and by the looks of it, WBD has a plan for all of them.
The future of these characters remains uncertain however, one thing is for sure, Hawkgirl has not been left out accidentally, she has been planning to appear in future projects and would have an arc for herself.
Black Adam will be available to watch in theatres from 21st October 2022.
