With the introduction of the Justice Society of America in the DCEU, it is no surprise that Johnson himself is excited to explore the potential of these new characters. The actor stressed the importance of building out a vast and expansive shared universe. “While [Shazam and Black Adam] may not be crossing paths, everything exists in a big umbrella of the DC universe,” commented Johnson.

The former pro-wrestler is hoping to see the possibility of potential crossovers come to fruition with time, but as for now, the focus is on building and expanding the DC universe to “as big” as it possibly can be.
