Warner Bros. Pictures is reportedly seeking scribes to pen a script for “Hawkman”, a film adaptation of the DC comics hero. Here’s the blurb that was recent issued (with thanks to Pajiba):
“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.”
The comic has utilised various different versions of the character, this take sounds more akin to the Earth-based version in which Egyptian Prince Khufu is reincarnated as an American archaeologist named Carter Hall. Other incarnations have painted him as an alien from a race of Hawkmen known as the Thanagarians.
