Yeah. Just not sure he needs a stand-alone movie, but I get theyíre doing it because they landed The Rock as their star.

By the time they get to that, Billy Batson will be so old that when he says Shazam! he'll just change clothes.

JSA Coming To The "Black Adam" Film - Dark Horizons
Action star Dwayne Johnson has confirmed to Comicbook.com that the classic DC superhero team the Justice Society of America will make its big-screen debut in the Johnson-led upcoming film “Black Hero” for Warner Bros. Pictures.

Out doing press for “Jumanji: The Next Level,” Johnson joked with frequent collaborator Kevin Hart when the latter asked if he can be Black Adam’s sidekick. Johnson responded saying: “We’re also gonna introduce JSA in Black Adam. So in JSA maybe there’s a (role)…They have an animal, a pet.”

In the comics, Black Adam was both an enemy and an ally to the JSA who are known as the first-ever team of superheroes to be formed in comic book history.

Jaume Collet-Serra will helm the film which will shoot from July next year ahead of a December 22nd 2021 opening.

I highly doubt this is coming in 2021 since they haven't done anything yet except pre-viz concept art. I think 2022 is more realistic. The Rock still has to finish filming Red Notice first.

But, from his presentation, it sounds he's ready once he's available.

THIS IS HAWKMAN 🦅 A pleasure to welcome @aldis_hodge to BLACK ADAM. HAWKMAN is a critical leading role for our movie, as he is the fiery leader of the JSA (Justice Society of America) and one of the most beloved and legendary characters in the DC UNIVERSE. I called Aldis personally as I wanted to surprise him that he got the role and it wound up being one of the greatest conversations I’ve ever had. Aldis: Hello? DJ: Hello, I’d like to speak to Aldis. Aldis: Who is this? DJ: This is Dwayne Johnson. * long pause Aldis: Whoever this is stop playing on my phone. DJ: This is Dwayne, is this Aldis? * longer pause Aldis: This shit ain’t funny, I said stop playing on my fucking phone. DJ: Aldis, this is DJ. I just called to say thank you so much for sending in your audition - it was great and I really appreciate the efforts you made. Just wanted to say thanks and best of luck in all you do. And one more thing — welcome to Black Adam. * longest pause Aldis: I’m sorry you’ll have to hold on for a one second. * he puts the phone down and walks away and all I hear is inaudible yells 😂 Aldis: DJAYYYY OHHHHH SHIT!!!!!! * Im laughing my ass off by now. DJ: You ok? You’re gonna crush this role! We went on to have an awesome conversation full of gratitude, love and motivation. Can’t wait to work with this very talented brother. The perfect HAWKMAN. Let’s get to work. #aldishodge #jsa #hawkman 🦅 #blackadam⚡️

Agree loved him in Leverage and Brian Banks.

IMHO Brian Banks should have got some OSCAR consideration.

Dwayne Johnson and DC Comics’ ‘Black Adam’ Adds Sarah Shahi

By Dave McNary

Sarah Shahi has joined Dwayne Johnson in New Line/DC’s upcoming superhero film “Black Adam.”

Shahi will play a university professor and freedom fighter leading the resistance in the fictional nation of Kahndaq. Producers have previously announced that Aldis Hodge has been cast as Hawkman and Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher — both members of DC’s Justice Society.

Shahi is currently shooting the Netflix series “Sex/Life.” Her credits include the Showtime series “City on a Hill,” “The Rookie,” “Reverie,” “Person of Interest,” “The L Word” and “Fairly Legal.”

Jaume Collet-Serra, who also directed Johnson in Disney’s “Jungle Cruise,” will helm “Black Adam.” Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions are producing with Beau Flynn of FlynnPictureCo, along with executive producer Scott Sheldon.

Johnson has been attached to play the anti-hero for several years. “Black Adam” takes place in the same DC Universe as Warner Bros. and New Line’s “Shazam!” starring Zachary Levy, which grossed $365 million worldwide last year. Shazam and Black Adam are arch rivals in the DC Universe.

The Black Adam character first appeared in DC Comics during the 1940s as a villain who had been corrupted by power, then became an anti-hero in the early 2000s with a disregard for rules and conventions. New Line and DC have kept details of the “Black Adam” story line under wraps. Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani wrote the latest draft of the film.

Warner Bros. had set “Black Adam’s” release date for Dec. 22, 2021, but recently took it off the release calendar and has not yet dated the movie.

Shahi is repped by CAA and McKeon Myones Entertainment. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
