‘BLACK ADAM’ Eyeing Alexander Skarsgard for Hawkman
DC FanDome will bring us quite a lot of news on upcoming DC projects. Among the schedule reveals, we got confirmation that Black Adam will finally get some spotlight. As such, we might finally get more details on the upcoming project. We have some ideas of what the Dwayne Johnson film might have in store for us. Just a few days ago, our very own Charles Muprhy had discussed rumbling surrounding the film. In it, he highlights that they might be narrowing down who will play the iconic Hawkman. Now, Illuminerdi revealed that they are currently eyeing none other than Alexander Skarsgard to play the character.
The Emmy-winner would be a great choice. With an inevitable clash between Hawkman and Black Adam, it makes sense to cast someone who could stand toe-to-toe with Johnson. Illuminerdi does point out that they are also considering Sam Heughan, who played Jamie Fraser in Outlander for the role. Still, Skarsgard is the current frontrunner for Warner Bros. and it only depends on his interest in joining the film.
It will be interesting if they can finalize a deal in time for the upcoming FanDome event. Hawkman a.k.a. Carter Hall is such an interesting character to explore. He has strong ties to Egypt due to the reincarnation cycle, so they can explore Black Adam’s relationship with him before being faced with his inevitable rebirth. With all the news recently coming out, I cannot wait to see what DC FanDome has in store for us all.
