Hawkman is an impressive looking character in the comics, but is quite tough to pull of in live action. No matter how well built the performer may be, their arms and chest still tend to appear scrawny when wearing the large helmet and wings. I am sure some costume designer will crack that issue one of these days, but so far I have yet to see a convincing live-action Hawkman. Namor also needs someone with a perfect physique to play him as well - you have to appear imposing while wearing just a speedo and ankle wings, and that's no small feat. It will be interesting to see which of these bare-chested badasses shows up on the big screen first.
