Mr. Terrific, Hourman Reportedly Newest Additions To JSA

There are a lot of reasons why the DC Universe has made a significant shift towards making and producing movies about characters (or involving them) from different parts of DC lore, and not necessarily from the Justice League only. This marks a huge step towards extending the DCU beyond the focus of the mighty superhero team.

The reasons for this shift range from the off-screen trouble that Ezra Miller (who plays JL member Flash) has brought to Warner Bros’ name, all the way to the development of plans to allow the entry of more characters in DCU movies. As Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate, along with others becomes a part of the DCU’s JSA, two other characters have reportedly been added too.

Mr.Terrific And Hourman Rumored To Be Latest DCU Additions

With the release of Black Adam, Dwayne Johnson brought one of the strongest DC characters to life in the eleventh movie of the DCU.

Along with the addition of Teth Adam came various other characters from the Justice Society of America (JSA) such as Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan), Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), and Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell).

Brosnan’s portrayal of the sorcerer Doctor Fate was one of the most anticipated additions that fans were eager to witness in Black Adam. Now it is being rumored that the DCU is planning to add two other characters into future movies, and yes, they’re from the JSA too.

DC Scooper @LookUponTheSta, who also runs @homeofdcu on Twitter reports that two new characters are being added to the DCU’s version of the JSA. The rumored additions are Hourman and Mister Terrific.

This clearly marks a halt in the production of movies based around Justice League characters, and instead towards characters that reside in different parts of the DC lore. However, it is only a rumor and must be taken with a grain of salt.
