Following the release of Black Adam, the fans were excited to see the Justice Society of America in the much-anticipated spin-off for Shazam! While expectations were still met after watching superheroes like Atom Smasher, Hawkman, and Cyclone share a screen with Black Adam, fans now are demanding a separate JSA movie including Mr. Terrific and Hawkgirl. Hawkgirl was initially written as a part of Black Adam, however, changes to the script over the years resulted in cutting her character off the movie.
Black Adam has become a medium to give way for more sequels that could subject the entire Justice Society of America to the DC universe.
Black Adam actor hoping to see Mr. Terrific and Hawkgirl in DCEU
Black Adam‘s inclusion of the JSA in the movie gave way to the introduction of many characters on the big screen. While Atom Smasher, Hawkman, and Sabbac made their debut in the DC universe already, the movie was yet to include DC’s third most intelligent superhero.
Aldis Hodge, who played the role of Hawkman in the movie, expressed his wishes to add two more characters from the comics in DCEU. The actor mentioned liking the backstory of Mr.Terrific, which would be interesting to be seen on screen. He said,
“Two people. I want to bring in Mr. Terrific – his backstory is amazing – and also Hawkgirl.”
The future could be bright for the adaption of Mr. Terrific and Hawkgirl if DC ends up making a movie on the Justice Society of America.

Fans demand a separate JSA movie
After James Gunn and Peter Saffran were made the heads for DC studios, the former was kind enough to ask his audience what comic characters would they be interested to see adapted in live-action. The head of DC studios recently posted a cryptic tweet that is supposedly recognized to be Mr. Terrific from the DC comics, the third smartest superhero after Lex Luthor and Bruce Wayne.
The fan’s reactions to the tweet have been largely positive and on the exciting side.
Did one of those CW shows do Mr Terrific? Feel like I've already seen him somewhere in live action. Or I'm just mixing him up with someone else.

DC has so many good characters that are unknown to the general public.
Mister terrific deserves a chance in a movie.

While Black Adam was a remarkable movie, it did not sit the best with the audience, having received a lukewarm reaction. However, the announcement for a future JSA movie could be what the DC Universe needs to get back on track.
