BLACK ADAM Star The Rock Confirms JSA; Hawkman, Atom Smasher & Stargirl Expected To Appear

BLACK ADAM Star The Rock Confirms JSA; Hawkman, Atom Smasher & Stargirl Expected To Appear

Seemingly confirming a long-running rumor, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has now revealed that his upcoming Black Adam movie will introduce the JSA. Plus, a separate report names some of the team-members...

We got word quite some time ago that the original script for Black Adam included DC Comics heroes such as Hawkman and Doctor Fate, and it looks like that's carried over to the latest draft.

While speaking to Screen Rant, star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was asked about the possibility of his character throwing hands with Shazam, and while the actor hinted that their face-off was being saved for a later adventure, he did seemingly confirm that the movie would "introduce the world to JSA."

This seems like a bit of a throwaway reveal, but it does line up with what we've previously heard. As for which specific Justice Society members will feature, a separate report from That Hashtag Show claims that Hawkman, Atom Smasher and Stargirl will appear.

Apparently, the studio is currently searching for an actor between 30-39 to play Carter Hall, with an emphasis on "landing someone the audience can believe could go toe-to-toe with the Brahma Bull." They seem to be casting younger (20-29) for the other two.

What do you guys make of these updates? Drop us a comment in the usual place. Black Adam will fly into theaters on 22 December, 2021.
