With the continuity of Black Adam still in question, many fans are speculating the film will be a part of the Snyderverse. Since Zack Snyder’s Justice League, no more films have been added to the lore of that continuity.

JSA v. Justice League?

With the fan popularity of the Justice League remaining strong, many have speculated on how they would persist against the Justice Society of America. As introduced in the latest DCEU film, the supergroup includes Black Adam, Doctor Fate, Hawkman, Cyclone, and Atom Smasher.

In other iterations visualized on-screen such as Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam, we’ve seen Black Adam go toe to toe with Superman, becoming one of his most iconic rivals. Since one of Superman’s weaknesses is magic, its puts both characters on equal footing.

But Batman is a whole other story, as he manages to stay in the game despite being no superhuman. As was seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ben Affleck’s Batman was able to hold his own against Superman, so it would make for an interesting bout if he went against Black Adam.

What does the JSA think of the clash?

In a Q&A with Vanity Fair, the cast of Black Adam discussed the possibility of the JSA going against the Justice League. They acknowledged how everyone wants Dwayne Johnson’s character to brawl against Superman, further hinting at rivalry taking place on-screen.

But when the whole team was snubbed, The Rock noted how Batman could change the game, stating “Well, what if Batman showed up”. Although the rest of the cast argued how the dark knight would be squished while facing off against the JSA, it’s still an interesting scenario to speculate on.

By the end of the Q&A, Dwayne Johnson pretended to be confused while plugging his movie, mentioning JSA and Justice League together, before noting “I’m just startin’ shit”, adding to his string of hints on wanting the Snyderverse to become canon.
