Dwayne Johnson has confirmed that the Justice Society will appear in his upcoming film Black Adam.
During his press tour for the upcoming Jumanji: The Next Level, Dwayne Johnson spoke with ScreenRant regarding Black Adam, the solo film he’ll be leading in the DCEU. Dwayne Johnson was originally expected to appear in Shazam! but it was best realized that he would star in his own solo-film as Black Adam. However, the question still stood regarding Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam facing off against Shazam. The Black Adam star revealed that he would be fighting the superhero down the road, which later led to him discussing the Justice Society.
“Without giving too much away, it’s not in the plans right now. I think the approach that we’re talking I feel really good about, and all of the filmmakers do too as well. It’s an origin story and that’s where we start it and we root it, and then we build out from there. Now, not to say Shazam isn’t on my radar. Of course Shazam is, but so is all of DC.”
Dwayne Johnson’s eyes are set quite largely, which led to the interviewer bringing up the Justice Society, to which the star confirmed that they will be introduced in Black Adam.
“JSA. We will introduce you to that, the world to JSA.”
Of course, Dwayne Johnson didn’t go into exact details as to who from the Justice Society will appearing in Black Adam. However, earlier today, we exclusively revealed that Doctor Fate would be starring in Black Adam, who just so happens to be a founding member of the Justice Society. We also know that Hawkman will be making an appearance in the Dwayne Johnson film as well, which makes two Justice Society members confirmed. Only time will tell which other Justice Society members will make an appearance in Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam!

Dwayne Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions co-produced Shazam!, which is now available on all home media formats.
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou.
Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam will hit theaters December 22, 2022!
