Actor Aldis Hodge has been added to the cast of Dwayne Johnson's DC superhero movie Black Adam. He is in final negotiations to play the character Hawkman.

The movie will be about the character Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson) who was first created as Shazam's arch enemy. The film will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who previously directed Johnson in the upcoming Disney movie Jungle Cruise.

The character Hawkman is part of a pair of lovers from Ancient Egypt who are destined to be reincarnated throughout space and time, with one of their rebirths being a hawk-themed superhero. He uses "nth metal" to allow his giant wings to fly and carries around a mace.

Hodge has been making a name for himself in recent films like Brian Burns and Clemency, while also appearing alongside Elisabeth Moss in the Universal and Blumhouse remake of The Invisible Man. He stars in the upcoming film One Night in Miami, which is currently generating awards buzz.

Dwayne Johnson announced the casting on his social media, including how the interaction between him and Hodge went down. Click here if you want a good laugh.

Right now, Black Adam is scheduled to release in theaters on December 22, 2021.
