By Hookshot do you mean you might have, possibly, perhaps, maybe, figured out how to work curved skillshots?
A hookshot is an item that goes out in a straight line and pulls things to you.

Or if you hit terrain, you pull yourself to it.

Or something like that - It's fairly well known.

Although, no, no curved skillshots on this guy.

He might wield an anchor.

He might be slow. He might have a hookshot to compensate.

Maybe.

Sweet another tank

Who is the designer behind this may I ask?, If it's you I might have to go buy an RP card (before even seeing the skill set) if I can't farm enough IP in time (though I may still need the RP if he has some awesome skins)

He follows closer to Leona and Amumu.

Can he pull himself to champions? To minions? Both? To walls? Towers? This is going to drive me crazy with anticipation.

I'll have QA sweep this again - but no, I don't believe this happens.

Kind of. Kind of. Kind of. Yes. Yes.

There's one variant of Amumu and Blitzcrank's abilities that can only be done if you have the condition that you can hookshot to terrain.

You know that if the next champion isn't yours, we'll be really mad and rage on forum because you teased us ?

Also, I wonder if it's gonna like clockwerk from Dota or gauntlet from HoN... or completely different.
