One of the cool reveals recently at DC FanDome was the fact that the Justice Society of America’s or simply JSA would be making an appearance in Black Adam which stars Dwayne Johnson as the titular anti-hero.
Questions remain now who will be playing the key members of the group who include Hawkman, Doctor Midnite and more. We now have one of those answers as The Rock humorously announced via Twitter that actor Aldis Hodge (The Invisible Man) has landed the key role of Hawkman in the film. I say humorous because The Rock included the phone conversation he had with Hidge telling him the great news to which Hodge didn’t believe it was Johnson at first. Take a look below!
Hodge joins Johnson and Noah Centineo who was confirmed earlier to be playing Atom Smasher. Johnson revealed a cool animated teaser video for Black Adam at last month’s DC FanDome which gives fans some history of the character who is a constant thorn in Captain Marvel (AKA Shazam)’s side.
Black Adam will now be released on December 22nd of 2021 and even though that is a long wait, anticipation grows daily from rabid fans who want to see Johnson’s anti-hero square off against Zachary Levi’s SHAZAM! Everyone knows that Johnson was supposed to debut as Black Adam in this year’s Shazam! but New Line and DC thought that he was too big for that film and that he needed his own vehicle to tell his tale.
Johnson is gonna bring it (pardon the pun) and from the concept art and teaser that was released, this looks like it will be one of the best DC adaptations yet. Johnson has also gone on record by calling out other superheroes like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and The Flash. Johnson promised that his arrival would “change the hierarchy of power forever.” He is The Rock after all so yeah…”just bring it.” Stay tuned as we are your destination for everything action!!
