Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s Black Adam appears to be taking shape based on a new rumor that has surfaced. According to FandomWire, the film will feature two different versions of the Justice Society of America.
In Nov. 2019, it was revealed that the Justice Society of America would make their DCEU debut in the film. Numerous reports have surfaced claiming various characters would fill the team’s roster, but it seems the matter is a bit complex. According to FandomWire, Johnson’s Black Adam will take on the classic JSA and a modern version of the team.
It has long been assumed that the film will be set primarily in the past, but this new report contradicts that. While the movie will start in the past, it will then fast forward to the present day.
When Black Adam faces off with the JSA in the past, their roster will reportedly feature a younger version of the Wizard Shazam, Hawkman & Hawkgirl, Doctor Fate, Jay Garrick, and Alan Scott. While most of these characters were previously rumored, this is the first mention of the Wizard appearing in the film.
This version of the JSA will not be the only challenge Johnson’s character faces as he will also face a modern version of the team. When the movie shifts to the present day, a reformed team will feature the reincarnated forms of Hawkman & Hawkgirl, Doctor Fate, Atom Smasher, and Cyclone. The team will be working alongside Black Adam’s love interest Isis aka Adrianna.
If this rumor is true and Black Adam will face off with two different versions of DC’s most powerful team, it seems the character will make quite the cinematic debut.
