Black Adam Character Posters Introduce the Justice Society of America

A collection of new posters for Black Adam introduces us to the latest DC superhero team, the Justice Society of America. Released courtesy of DC Comics, the posters give us a detailed look at the four members of the JSA, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate.

One Night in Miami star Aldis Hodge leads the Justice of America as Carter Hall AKA Hawkman. An archaeologist who discovers that he is the reincarnation of an Egyptian prince, Hawkman has the power of flight from his stunning metal wings, and is a great and proficient warrior.

Next up is Quintessa Swindell as Maxine Hunkel AKA Cyclone, the granddaughter of former hero Red Tornado, who can control wind and generate sound. While maintaining the same color scheme, her costume has gone through major (and justifiable) changes in the leap from the pages of DC Comics to live action.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star Noah Centineo joins the JSA as Albert “Al” Rothstein AKA Atom Smasher, who can control his molecular structure and manipulate his size and strength. Which will no doubt bring similar visual surprises to Black Adam as Ant-Man does to The Avengers.

Finally, James Bond star Pierce Brosnan will join the world of comic book movies as Kent Nelson AKA Doctor Fate. A member of the JSA and the son of an archaeologist (it seems that the JSA is cat-nip to archaeologists), Nelson was taught the ways of sorcery and was given the magical Helmet of Fate. For ease, think of Doctor Fate as being the DC version of fellow clinician, Marvel’s Doctor Strange.

Based on the recent trailer for Black Adam, the Justice Society of America will come to blows with the antihero, played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, as Doctor Fate and the rest of the group attempt to convince the all-powerful god to fight for the side of truth and justice.

After so, so many years of waiting, Black Adam will introduce Dwayne Johnson as Teth-Adam. Nearly 5,000 years after receiving the almighty powers of the Egyptian gods and being imprisoned just as quickly, Black Adam is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.

The JSA will not be the only other heroes to cross paths with Black Adam, with Johnson recently revealing that he plans to expand on the DC cinematic universe. “I am 100% committed to not only Black Adam but then expanding the Black Adam universe, the DC universe. I am an optimist from the word, ‘Go.’ So, to me and to all of us up here, all universes exist in our heads. I will, we all will, work very hard to make sure we are honoring the mythology but also giving the fans what they want.”

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a screenplay by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab Noshirvani, Black Adam stars Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, Bodhi Sabongui, and Pierce Brosnan alongside Dwayne Johnson in the titular role.

Black Adam is scheduled to be released in the United States on October 21, 2022, by Warner Bros. Pictures.
