Not long ago, DC fans had been sulking over the fact that they most likely won’t be able to see any more of the Snyderverse with little or no chances of a Justice League 2 happening. But they seemed to have moved on from the hopes of wanting a Justice League sequel as they demand a movie about the Justice Society of America instead.
The portrayal of the esteemed superhero squad of the Justice Society in Black Adam ended up sweeping the audience over their feet and now people want to see more of them on the big screen.
Black Adam‘s Justice Society has DC fans bedazzled
Dwayne Johnson‘s debut as Black Adam isn’t the only thing that DC fans are celebrating. While fans are showing their love and support for Johnson’s role as the anti-hero, they also seem to be singing high praise of the superhero team, Justice Society of America in the film.
One of the oldest superhero squads in DC comics, the Justice Society goes way back around the 1940s when it first made its debut appearance in the superhero franchise.
In Black Adam, the JSA consists of Pierce Brosnan‘s Doctor Fate, Noah Centineo’s Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman, and Quintessa Swindell’s Cyclone. While Doctor Fate and Hawkman are amongst the original founding members of the JSA, the others are fairly new additions to the storyline.
Each of the superheroes, with their own special powers and superhuman abilities, brings an extremely fresh and exciting contribution to not only Black Adam‘s plot, but also adds to the overall background of the DCEU. And fans have taken a strong liking to this team of superheroes as they wish to see them embark on more adventures and get their own film as well.
Fans loved Black Adam‘s JSA and want to see more of them
Besides the titular role of Black Adam who is played by The Rock, the audience was thrilled to see the Justice Society of America in the film as well, so much so that they want to see the formidable group of superheroes in a movie of their own.
The original line-up of the Justice Society consisted of Doctor Fate, Hawkman, Green Lantern, Flash, Ultra-Man, Sandman, and The Spectre. Along with Brosnan’s Doctor Fate and Hodge’s Hawkman, a couple of relatively new members have been introduced in Black Adam, thereby providing a different storyline to the super-team. And the movie also focuses on offering insights into the backstories of the JSA members which makes it all the more interesting.
DC fans seem to be pumped about the same as they hop on Twitter to express their delight with the way Black Adam‘s JSA has been depicted in the film.

While early reviewers and critics deemed Black Adam as a mediocre film bereft of a strong plot and interesting characters, fans are arguing against it, claiming that Johnson’s Black Adam and the Justice Society of America are what make the film an amazing one.
Reviews: Black Adam is too action oriented and suffers because of it

#BlackAdam BEST COMIC BOOK MOVIE of the year behind The Batman. The Rock EMBODIED Black Adam, which is impressive since his personality shines in most roles. Doctor Fate & JSA ROCKED. Movie felt like a Man of Steel fight. I loved the conflict of whether heroes should kill or not!

And just like that, the audience is done crying over Justice League 2 as they hope to see a Justice Society of America movie instead.
If Snyder shoehorned the JSA into his movie we wouldn’t hear the end of it 😭😭😭

While nothing can be said for sure about the possibility of seeing the JSA get a film of their own, it’s certainly clear as to where the interests of the audience lie.
Black Adam is now out in theatres.
