Warner Bros. and DC Films are teaming up with Chernin Entertainment on a film adaptation of the iconic comic book character Hourman, sources have confirmed.
The adaptation will be written by Gavin James and Neil Widener and will be based on the characters of Hourman, published by DC Comics, which also publishes comics of Batman and Wonder Woman.
Hourman portrays a brilliant but depressed pharmaceutical analyst who learns that the visions he's had since childhood are simply glimpses of horrific events that will occur in future.
Desperate to win back his ex-wife and children, he heroically intervenes to prevent these tragedies from occurring, seeking both purpose and salvation in the process.
It won't be the first time for DC to develop a project based on this superhero. DC and the CW had hopes before to create a show in the Arrowverse based on Hourman. But those plans were never executed but one version did pop out in the popular small-screen universe.
Patrick J. Adams played the Rex Tyler version of Hourman in the series called Legends of tomorrow.
With this latest Hourman project just recently revealed, fans will likely have to wait a long time to find out what version of the character will be at the core of the film, who will play him, and when the film will be released.
