Hodge spoke of a moment where the production “worked on a story” and “rooted some grounded honesty about these characters, their motivation.” That means when something didn’t go right with Johnson (whom the cast called DJ), it was changed. Hodge says:
“There was a line that my character had. We were in a stressful situation and I said it. The DJ was like, ‘We have to change that.’ I said, ‘Why?’ “Well, let’s change it because this seems a bit difficult. People might think he’s a bit mean. We want them to understand him and stick with him. We’re not trying to embarrass Hawkman in this moment. He’s the leader, but we want to understand. So we’re going to move these lines a bit. We’re going to do this to give him the space and platform to be supported by the audience here. ‘”
Johnson’s interest in each character and the film is not limited to that scene. According to his members, Johnson ensures that everyone gets a chance to shine.
