Steven Spielberg's Blackhawk May Connect To Wonder Woman

This week saw the big announcement from Warner Bros. that Steven Spielberg is joining the DC movie universe with Blackhawk.

It's actually not the first time we've heard mention of Blackhawk associated with the DC films as a while back saw Wonder Woman actor Said Taghmaoui‏ tease the character.

Said Taghmaoui‏ tweeted out a pic of himself next to the comic book art with, "Coming Soon!"

Now just a couple hours ago the actor also tweeted a screenshot of an article speculating a Wonder Woman connection.

Regarding Said Taghmaoui‏'s Wonder Woman role, I believe it was an original character for the movie, Sameer, but obviously the character could still have ties to the Blackhawks.

In the DC Comics, Blackhawk is a wartime adventure series focusing on the titular Blackhawk, who commanded a squadron of ace pilots also known as the Blackhawks or the Blackhawk Squadron. The squadron would battle the Axis powers, as well as more fantastic super-villains and war machines, such as the memorable shark planes, which could operate in water as well as in the air. While the team debuted in 1941 in the heart of comics' Golden Age, they’ve also been adapted to the modern era as a part of The New 52 and have spawned a well-known DC heroine, Lady Blackhawk, who joined the series in the late 1950s.

Here is the old tweet:
