It seems that many fans are not satisfied with the short exposure of the Justice Society of America (JSA) in Black Adam. DC’s newest production stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and was supposed to serve as a spin-off to Shazam!

What Exactly Is The Justice Society of America?

The Justice Society of America first appeared in an issue of All-Star Comics as a league of superheroes fighting against villains by banding together. The original members were Doctor Fate, Hourman, the Spectre, Sandman, Atom, the Flash, Green Lantern, and Hawkman.

Surprisingly, they are the first-ever superhero team in comics. The Justice League replaced the JSA after it became less popular among fans. Now, the Black Adam movie will hopefully boost their popularity again.

From the trailer alone, fans could see that Black Adam will have to deal with the JSA. However, some fans believe that it would be better to have Teth-Adam as the antagonist while the JSA becomes the protagonist. Check out their tweets:

Many agreed with the original poster saying that “a villain protagonist and a hero antagonist” would be a much better story. But, some claim that no one would want to see a Justice Society-focused film.

So far, The Rock’s blockbuster movie is doing pretty well at the weekend box office at $67 million mark. Black Adam is now showing in theaters worldwide.
