Concept art of Hawkgirl imagining what the DC Comics heroine could look like in a mysterious live-action project has resurfaced after being found by fans.
Hawkgirl Concept art has resurfaced and reveals a glimpse of what DC’s beloved heroine could look like in a live-action TV show or movie. As the superhero and comic book genre has exploded onto the big and small screen, several iconic heroes have come to life over the past two decades. As for the DC Universe, Warner Bros. has adapted several heroes, whether in the DCEU or the Arrowverse, from big names like Superman and Batman, to lesser-known heroes.
While there have been several DC TV shows and movies to include the classic comic book characters, there have been so many DC projects over the years to be scrapped for various creative reasons. Whether it’s for a TV show or a feature film, it’s common for superhero projects to get revamped behind the scenes. In some cases, this is due to the cast or crew making sudden changes, such as Ben Affleck’s exit from The Batman, which made way for Robert Pattinson’s non-DCEU interpretation. In others, a studio may rethink its strategy for when to introduce certain characters into the franchise and have them appear later. One DC character whose early plans were revamped in this way is Hawkgirl, one of Thanagar’s most popular Hawk-related characters.
Even though Hawkgirl has had her fair share of non-comedic appearances, it seems Hawk’s heroine almost appeared in a mysterious DC project. Luca Nemolatoa concept artist who has worked on multiple superhero movies and TV shows, recently shared the unused work he did for Hawkgirl through his deviantart page, which has now resurfaced on Twitter. Without revealing which specific DC project it was, Nemolato shared two versions of his Hawkgirl with the following caption:
“Old concept for a Hawkgirl that never happened. I had the idea to give her a high altitude mask for when she’s flying.”
While it’s unclear where this version of Hawkgirl would have appeared, the next black adam the film is a potential candidate. Although Carter Hall/Hawkman will appear in the DCEU project, played by Aldis Hodge, the hero’s partner and wife will not. However, according to Dwayne Johnson, Hawkgirl was originally part of black adam The composition of the Justice Society of America. Without revealing specifics, Johnson claimed in August 2020 that Hawkgirl’s withdrawal was a “complicated story” that he was going “share with fans on the road.”
Since Nemolato worked on black adam, it would certainly make sense for this Hawkgirl concept art to feature for the DCEU movie. Another DC project he could have been for (although Nemolato was not involved in it) is Kryptonwhich was canceled by SYFY ahead of Season 3. Had Krypton season 3 happened, it was supposed to feature the Thanagarians after the season 2 finale cliffhanger which featured a brief glimpse of the winged aliens. This may have led to Hawkgirl appearing the following season. Until Nemolato clarifies the original plans for his art, which DC movie or show this Hawkgirl concept art was going to be used for speculation.
