“When [Dwayne] said, ‘Welcome to Black Adam,’ it was literally how I pictured winning the lottery going,” Hodge said in a previous interview, per the Universe. I didn’t care what it was for so long just because I was such a fan. I grew up reading graphic novels. I got into the business to make money to buy Batman toys, you know? But as far as my pursuit of that type of vehicle – for no particular character, just any foot in the door – was many years ago. It was like 13-15 years of going batting all the time and being told no… So it was really a validation of those last few years of striving, rushing and preparing. And for me, it was a real moment of disbelief.”
“As a fan, comics fan, and superhero fan, I love Hawkman’s nature,” Hodge continued. “He is an absolute warrior. He’s a savage, and with good reason. He has good intentions. But what I love so much about him, and connect with personally, is his understanding and love of trying to make history right. It boils down to the cerebral part. He’s a professor, and because he lives so many lives, he understands; he was there. He is history. And when it comes to certain things in textbooks, he wants to get it right.”
