Ewww. That pottery bonking scene in Ghost freaks me out. Its not Patrick Swayze, its Whoopi Goldberg Demi, Whoopi Goldberg! I know I'm a man ("I go pee-pee standing up" to qoute Kung Pow) and thus not really the target audience but come on...
Hawkman. Got to admit, not much awareness of the character beyond his DCAU appearances. Does he have a following?
Now back to insulting customers. The joys of being a grown up.
Oh, and its bloody freezing
" well if they put someone who actually fit the look in the costume, it'd be pretty cool. The one used for Smallville looks almost right... the only problem is that the actor Michael Shanks looks a little too scrawny to be Hawkman. But with a few changes here and there it has the potential to be a cool movie. "Scrawny? Really? He's been buffer than this, and he's not so bad here.
I would rather see a Flash movie first and Hawkman make a later appearance in a Justice League movie or something but I guess this works if they can make that ancient Egyptian pharaoh/ alien cop origin make since. Would be cool to see Gerard Butler put on the wings as Carter Hall.
It will just be a waste of money.
There is no possible way to portray a character like this on the big screen ¬¬ small screen, possibly. But it will just look too stupid. And he's not a well known character like Batman or Superman are.
" HELL NO! Hawkman getting a movie! thats dumb give it to a better hero FLASH for gods sake not this loser HE DOESNT EVEN DESERVE SMALLVILLE !!! "Smallville isn't something to deserve or not. It's a curse! All heroes that "went" to Smallville turned out as horrible adaptations. Srsly, that shit sucks.
I think Bruce Vain and the Bug put it best, HAWKWORLD.
That is by far the coolest Hawkman story out there, bar none. The Thanagarian lower classes are some bugged out mutant slaves, and I would like to see that on the big screen. Plus (don't freak out Hawkfans) if it is set up in outerspace they could even do away with the wings and just have the nth metal and a helmet with a beak or something.
I would hate to see The Mummy as a superhero movie, please god no. Please no Brendan Fraser with wings.
So bring the outlaw spacecop to Earth and hook him up with Egyptian myths. We could change the story a bit more (I must be offending those Hawkfans out there) and have Katar Hol realize that Egyptian myths are identical to Thangarian myths but with a different spoken language (hieroglyphs are the same). You could even explain the pyramids and Egyptian culture as a result of Thanagarian influence. That would give you a chance to show Thanagar, and out law stuff, then fugitive alien on Earth crashes into Pyramids, and then he can travel the Earth saving the world.
I think Hawkman is one of those guys who is Ancient, as in Golden Age, so he has some diehards, but a greater number of people just do not care. They should make a flick though to lead into Justice League!!
Who said they will make this into a superhero direction? The whole thing could possibly be a sci-fi/mythology movie just like what the description says so. Don't you see the part Indiana Jones/Da Vinci Code thing?
I believe it could work. I can imagine this movie to be an extremely dark tech-noir film. Those who fail to see that better reread Hawkman's page on comicvine.
im not doubting they could make Hawkman LOOK fantastic. putting wings on a guy is no problem on a movie budget. But i cant see the movie doing well. Hawkma isnt an iconic chracater by any means. he's one of those heroes you actually dont expect people to know. And he doesnt have a massive fan following like Aquaman.
If they did make this movie, there would be a very mild amount of fan support from comics readers, and i cant really see the story grabbing people.
