Every Fictional Location in the DCEU Map (So Far) (MovieWeb)

Link to source of map

   With the Black Adam movie, Hawkman and Hawkgirl's homebase is now on the DCEU (soon to be DCU I suppose) map. St. Roch was Hawkman's city during the Vol. 4 and Hawkgirl series (2002-2007) and  the Black Adam movie brought it back in a big way. The soon-to-be-defunct DCEU has made St. Roch a rather important city, so it could be used in the DCU again in some way. It's been established (for now) that Hawkman has a huge estate outside the city limits, and the estate also serves as the headquarters for the Justice Society. This never happened in the movies but since when do movie writers worry about what's in the comics, right? Amanda Waller and her Belle Reve Penitentiary are located near St. Roch as well, which means the Suicide Squad is also there.  

   If the DCU ever gets going and they decide to move the Hawks again, there's also Midway City. It's basically Chicago in the DC Universe but located in Michigan, and it's the city where the Silver-Bronze Age Hawkman and Hawkgirl were based from 1961 to the 1990s. Chicago could also be used since Carter and Shiera had a penthouse overlooking Chicago, where the Hawkworld's Katar and Shayera were based. After Carter and Shiera died during the Zero Hour Crisis, they left the penthouse to Katar and Shayera who used it until Hawkman Vol. 3 ended in 1996. 

   It took me a while to warm up to St. Roch since I grew up on reading the Hawks flying around Midway City, but St. Roch has slowly been establishing itself. The Stonechat Museum, St. Roch University (where Carter lectures at times), and now the estate and headquarters make it a very important city in Hawkman's history. Amanda Waller and her Suicide Squad also have a connection to the city so there's a good chance we'll see it again in the DCU, once it gets going. 

   I replaced the map I originally had with a more up-to-date, accurate one. I found it on a Reddit page. The link is below the map.

   Check out the link for all the other cities on the list. The article on the MovieWeb website spells it "St. Rock" but I'm sure that's just a typo.

    Just read through the 1986 Hawkman run, and issues 13-15 are set in an unnamed Gulf Coast city clearly meant as a stand in for New Orleans. Retroactively, at least, this has to be the first appearance of St. Roch.

  2. I know in New Orleans, there is neighborhood called St. Roch. Thanks for mentioning this.
