Crave Online got their hands on the first trailer for The XXX Adventures of Hawkman and Hawkgirl: An Extreme Comixxx Parody, and thanks to embed codes, we’ve got it too.
Or – “I Thought This Was The Last Issue…”
As the New 52 soldiers on, many of the books in the first wave have gone away, changed beyond recognition, or had more creators’ hands in them than the cast of The Muppet Show. Savage Hawkman has yet to really thrill me, will this issue be the one that turns the tide? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
It’s kind of sad that the adult film industry can crank out superhero movies faster than the big H’wood studios. Then again, these are porn parodies, so how good can they be? Exquisite Films has been cranking out the Extreme Comixxx parodies for a couple of years now, and the company’s latest offering features Hawkman, Hawkgirl, and Black Canary.
Or – “The Swan-Song Of J. Robert Liefeld…”
I’ve had a love-hate relationship with Hawkman over the years, enjoying his appearances in JSA, the Tim Truman revamp and a few JLA cameos, but truly loathing the endless cycle of retcons and revamping and back-story updates. A character who is more important for his historical significance than his actual comics appearances (much like Wonder Woman, only vastly more so), Hawkman has been kind of bland for my tastes, and I can’t remember having read the previous issues of this particular run, even though I KNOW I have. (I reviewed at least one of them, I’m certain.) Will the new Hawkman’s Zero Month appearance grab me? Your Major Spoilers review awaits.
Or – “My Power Infests All Times, All Galaxies, All Dimensions…”
The Savage Hawkman of Thanagar! Carter Hall, aka Katar Hol, has had more origins than many heroes have actual published issues. This latest version has found that the Nth Metal that once made up his wings has now infused his body, allowing him to create armor and weapons to fight evil. But what good is a mace against an intangible ghost?
The New 52 has given us a new look at characters from throughout DC’s long history, and Hawkman goes all the way back to the earliest days of the DCU. Does this fresh take on Hawkman fly like an eagle, or is it a turkey, set to crash and burn?
I don’t know if it was because he got so much crap earlier today or not, but Warner Bros. has announced it is moving ahead with a Hawkman movie. Right now, the studio is looking for writers for the piece, but it has released a logline for the film:
Part INDIANA JONES/DA VINCI CODE, part GHOST tentpole about the fictional superhero that appears in D.C. Comic books. He used archaic weaponry and large, artificial wings attached to a harness made of the Nth metal that allows flight. Most incarnations of Hawkman work closely with a partner/romantic interest named Hawkgirl or Hawkwoman in his fight against supervillains. Based on the DC comic.
Aaaaannnndddd pretty much, that is it. Nothing else other than that. Nada. Zilch. Zippo.
Here’s a bit of fun for your holiday… Green Lantern finally gets his film, and there are drinks all around. Sounds like a really good time, until Hawkman shows up. AWKWARD!
Warning: Some Not Safe For Work (NSFW) language in the video for those of you that are sensitive about that stuff.
So, is Hawkman worthy of a full length feature film?
Who says comic book geeks have to be in the 30s?Â If you have a little tyke you’re trying to convert to the dark side, one sure fire way to get him (or her) to pick up and play with those DC Super Friends again, is to give them the latest addition to the line – Hawkman.
This 6″ scale, chunky figure is fully-articulated (including articulated wings) and arrives ready for battle in his new brown war deco and Hawk Jet.
Yes, it is certainly cool, but Mattel doesn’t say if Hawkman comes with his own Nth Metal mace for kicking Lex Luthor’s butt.
A lot of people hate the costume and look of Hawkman from the upcoming Smallville TV movie, so I’ve flipped from Batgirl to a Carter Hall kick, which lead me to this Evan Shaner piece.
Or – “I Think We Can Be Certain It’s Not Really Final…”
I started to try and write a big clever open, but y’know what?Â
RACCOON WITH A HEAVY MACHINE GUN!!!!!
How am I s’pose to top that?
