Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds transforms into Hawkman in a new concept desing for Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam.
Ryan Reynolds is set to reprise his role as Deadpool for a sequel that is now in development over at Marvel Studios, but there was a time when his future in the role was in doubt due to the Disney-Fox deal. Reynolds has already appeared in the DC universe as Green Lantern, but a few fans pegged him as someone who could play Hawkman since Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam will feature the Justice Society.
During the DC FanDome event, a concept art sizzle reel for Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam teased the film’s direction and its characters. Popular digital artist BossLogic was behind the art, and before Invisible Man star Aldis Hodge boarded the DC film as Hawkman, he envisioned Ryan Reynolds in the role. You can check out the artwork of Reynolds as Hawkman below.
