More than 15 years after being cast as Black Adam, The Rock has sooner or later made the Black Adam mission a truth in the shape of a DCEU film. Dwayne Johnson showed that the authentic plan was to introduce Shazam and Black Adam in the same movie, however that he voted for both Shazam and Black Adam to have their own solo films first. Still, Black Adam will not center around Black Adam only, as it will also introduce the primary live-action movie version of the Justice Society of America – the JSA.
Considering that Black Adam has been mainly a villain in the comics, it become hard to photograph how the Black Adam film might manage to create a character that audiences should root for. Not only that, however Black Adam additionally had a mission in phrases of stakes – as Black Adam generally fights heroes like Shazam or even the Justice League in the comics. The answer was to have Black Adam combat the Justice Society in the Black Adam film. However, not like different Black Adam and Justice Society stories, the Black Adam movie can be set in the present day. That seemly creates a DCEU canon problem, each due to the fact the JSA had so far never been noted and because the Justice League already exists and can be known as to attend to Black Adam. The number one cause for the Justice League not to be in Black Adam is that the status of the Justice League solid in the DCEU continues to be being sorted out, even though there’ll probable be an in-universe cause to provide an explanation for why the Justice League does not take care of Black Adam.
Why Waller Calls The Justice Society (& Not The Justice League)
Peacemaker establishes that Amanda Waller has a few form of direct line of touch with the Justice League, as she requested for the Justice League’s assist withinside the show’s finale. Therefore, there needs to be a cause why Waller doesn’t name the Justice League this time. One opportunity is that the Justice League is off the planet, although the Justice League had up to now by no means left the Earth withinside the DCEU. The different possibility is that Amanda Waller desires to manage Black Adam secretly. Both Suicide Squad and Peacemaker set up that Batman and Amanda Waller are far from being friends, and it’s far probable that the Justice League might not accept taking part in a mystery ARGUS mission. If the Justice Society is a greater mystery group than the Justice League withinside the DCEU, then it’d make feel why the JSA might answer Waller’s name however not the Justice League.
Black Adam Continues The DCEU’s Justice League Problem
While in-universe reasons for the Justice League not being in Black Adam may be found, that canon inconsistency is a symptom of a much large DCEU problem. It has been nearly 5 years because Justice League (2017), but there hasn’t been any declaration regarding a sequel or any new Justice League movie. The status of most of the Justice League solid is also up in the air – Henry Cavill hasn’t performed Superman because 2017; Ray Fisher publicly said he might not go back to the franchise below the present day management; Ezra Miller has been worried in a chain of behind the scenes controversies, and Ben Affleck has gone on record saying he was done playing Batman – even though Affleck will go back in The Flash and Aquaman and the Last Kingdom.
Therefore, with such uncertainty concerning the Justice League and the DCEU’s future as a whole, it makes feel that the Justice League does not have a position in Black Adam. That said, Dwayne Johnson has been teasing a few form of Superman and Black Adam crossover for a while – even though there hasn’t been an official declaration concerning Henry Cavill in Black Adam. It remains to be seen how exactly will the Justice Society of America fit into the DCEU canon, and what will be the in-universe reason for Amanda Waller not to call the Justice League.
