Hawkgirl concept art imagining what the DC Comics heroine might look like in a mysterious live-action project resurfaces after being found by fans.
hawkgirl concept art resurfaces, revealing what the beloved DC heroine might look like in a live-action TV show or movie. As the superhero and comic book genre has exploded on the big and small screens, several iconic heroes have come to life over the past two decades. When it comes to the DC universe, Warner Bros. adapted multiple 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 that have featured the classic characters of the comics, there have been so many DC projects over the years that have been scrapped for various creative reasons. Whether it’s a TV show or a feature film, it’s common for superhero projects to be redesigned behind the scenes. In some cases, this is due to the cast or crew making sudden changes, such as Ben Affleck’s departure from the batter, which made room for Robert Pattinson’s non-DCEU interpretation. In other cases, a studio may rethink its strategy on when to introduce certain characters to the franchise, and instead appear later in line. One DC character who has adapted his debut plans in this way is Hawkgirl, one of the most popular Hawk-related characters from Thanagar.
While Hawkgirl has had quite a few non-comics appearances, it seems that the Hawk heroine almost made an appearance in a mysterious DC project. Luca Nemolato, a concept artist who has worked on multiple superhero movies and TV shows, recently shared unused work he did for Hawkgirl through his Deviantart page, which is now resurfacing on Twitter. Without revealing what specific DC project it was for, Nemolato shared two versions of his Hawkgirl with the following caption:
“Old concept for a Hawkgirl that never happened. Had the idea to give her a high-altitude mask for when she flies.”
While it’s unclear where this version of Hawkgirl would have appeared, the upcoming Black Adam film is a potential candidate. While Carter Hall/Hawkman will appear in the DCEU project played by Aldis Hodge, the hero’s partner and wife will not be. However, according to Dwayne Johnson, Hawkgirl was originally part of Black Adam’s The Justice Society of America lineup. Without disclosing the details, Johnson claimed in August 2020 that the removal of Hawkgirl was a “complicated story” that he would”share with the fans on the road.”
Since Nemolato worked on Black Adam, it certainly would make sense that this Hawkgirl concept art was pitched for the DCEU movie. Another DC project it was possible for (although Nemolato was not involved) is: kryptonwhich was canceled by SYFY before season 3. Had krypton Season 3 happened, it was meant to be a lot of Thanagarians after Season 2’s cliffhanger, with a brief look at the winged aliens. This may have led to Hawkgirl showing up the following season. Until Nemolato clarifies the original plans for his art, which DC movie or show is this? hawkgirl concept art would be used for is for speculation.
