|Big Announcement from DCU James Gunn!|
There was big news in Hawkworld today: in a surprise announcement, we found out that Isabela Merced was cast as Hawkgirl for James Gunn's Superman Legacy. The Superman movie is scheduled to be released on July 11, 2025, which means we have a two-year wait before we see the first Hawkgirl to soar across the movie screen.
We have no details on what her role will be in the movie. Two other heroes were also announced with Hawkgirl: Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific and Nathan Fillion as GL Guy Gardner. This seems like a completely random, mishmash group of heroes who have all never been on the same team before, and how they come into Superman's story is anyone's guess. We'll have to wait for more details to come out as the release date gets closer. But James Gunn confirmed it himself on Instagram yesterday.
