To make this fighting style a reality, Hodge also worked with his stunt double, David Charles Warren III, to figure out how to combine different techniques into one. Why exactly is this important? Because Hall is the reincarnation of the Egyptian prince Khufu, it means he has inherited his ancient fighting techniques and ways. Needless to say, he has a ton of fighting styles, and that’s obviously a priority for Hodge.
“He picked up his style along the way […] in the various forms of combat he’s been through, so we should do something that reflects that,” he said. It’s really about finding the best of all the styles that I love and researching to come up with and bringing them together to create something we can build on. “
It is unclear whether these styles and the factors influencing them will be covered in a future project. However, Hodge remains optimistic that he will eventually play Hawkman again.
“If we had the opportunity to continue telling the story of Hawkman,” he said, “we would have expressed that style in really creative and amazing ways that we’ve never seen on screen.”
Hawkman will make his DCEU debut in “Black Adam,” which hits theaters on October 21, 2022.
