Updated: Feb 18

We are all aware by now that The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson, is the next big blockbuster on the way from DC Comics as it is hitting theatres next month. But Warner Bros. and DC have a lot more hits waiting to be released this year.

One of those is Black Adam, and after a brand-new teaser unveiled by The Rock ahead of Super Bowl Sunday, we got plenty of new footage from the movie which dominated the teaser which centred around the titular anti-hero that stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the lead role as Black Adam, Pierce Brosnan as Dr Fate, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.

Watch the Teaser below:

We get our first official looks at all of our known JSA heroes suited up and ready for action as we even hear Pierce Brosnan’s Dr Fate attempting to recruit Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Black Adam by saying: "Come with us. There's a glorious world out there waiting for you." which teases an eventual team up between the JSA and Black Adam.

Who Are The JSA?

The Justice Society of America (or JSA for short) are DC Comics’ first ever superhero team who debuted all the way back in All-Star Comics #3 of December 1940 were created by editor Sheldon Mayer and iconic DC scribe Gardner Fox. The team were active during World War II and are considered one of the most beloved teams in comic book history.

With members such as the original Green Lantern (Alan Scott), the original The Flash (Jay Garrick), Dr Mid-Nite, Wildcat as well as the members who will be showing up in Black Adam, the JSA have taken on more of a mentor role in the modern era for fellow DC heroes across the globe as they pass down their experience and knowledge of superhero-ing to trainess and experts alike.

Although most of the JSA are much older than traditional heroes, they are still more than capable of saving the world over and over with immensely powerful beings such as Dr Fate residing in their ranks as the team are key to upholding a legacy that strives for timeless ideals such as truth, justice and hope for the DC Universe.
