Hiram Garcia, producer for Black Adam, talks about the JSA and teases the future of the DCU!
From Collider, here is what Garcia had to say about the JSA in Black Adam:
We are so excited to introduce the Justice Society, especially Hawkman who’s such a beloved character and one of those heroes who’s always meant so much to the DC universe. Having them play in the same sandbox as Black Adam is going to be fantastic, and for the already established fans of these characters I think they are going to be really excited to see what elements from classic story lines we take inspiration from as we bring these characters together. When you take a powerhouse like Black Adam and inject him into this DC cinematic universe you want to make sure you are putting characters around him that can really up the stakes. As DJ likes to say the hierarchy of power in the DC universe really is going to change so Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone will have their hands full no matter how we choose to have them interact with Black Adam.
Here’s what Garcia teased regarding the future of the DCU:
There’s been multiple ongoing conversations on how everything will roll out and it’s very exciting for myself as a filmmaker but even more so as a fan. Unfortunately, I can’t speak to that too much because it is still in the works, but I can say that on our end we’re very focused on building out this world we’re creating with Black Adam and the JSA. Obviously Shazam exists in that universe along with many many other heroes and believe me when I say we have very big ambitions for all these characters and the story lines we want to take them through.
Reading what Hiram Garcia had to say about the JSA and the future of the DC Universe got me pumped up! I can’t wait to see the JSA on the big screen because I love Doctor Fate and Hawkman, so this is going to make me feel like a big kid. Also, the tease from Garcia got me excited because this means we’re going to see Black Adam involved in more films than we thought, and as a big Black Adam fan, this makes me incredibly happy. When this film comes out, I know it could be one of the best DC films we’ll ever see.
