Justice Society of America may be getting their own movie, but…

June 5th, 2020 by Marc Comments

A new report has hinted that we may be close to seeing one of DC’s most iconic superhero teams coming to the screen… but with a caveate.

It seems that DC/Warners might be looking at bringing the Justice Society of America – JSA – to the big screen for the first time as the team will be introduced in Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam movie.

The JSA was founded by Doctor Fate, Hour-Man, the Spectre, the Sandman, the Atom, the Flash, Green Lantern, and Hawkman – all of whom are currently part of the Stargirl TV Series and have been featured in Legend of Tomorrow –  and this actually ties in to previous reports suggesting that Black Adam would battle Hawkman in the upcoming movie and possibly Stargirl (here).

Late last year Johnson said: “We’re also gonna introduce JSA in Black Adam.”

And according to the report, if the team is well enough received, then we could see the full JSA make it to the big screen too.

For a deep dive, I’d like to point out the David Ayer’s Suicide Squad took place in Midway City which is the home city of Hawkman, so the footing is already laid for those paying attention.

The JSA would be a brave movie for the DCEU as they are a golden-age notion in the comics, a throwback to an era long gone, but if they explore Black Adam being around a long time, there’s certainly no reason why they couldn’t be fit into the tapestry of the world… personally, I’d be excited as hell to see them on the big screen.

What say you all? Would you like to see the JSA appear in Black Adam and then a standalone movie? I want to hear what you have to say, gang…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
