Black Adam: DC Fans are Loving the Live-Action Justice Society
DC fans got a treat earlier today with the release of a short trailer featuring all of Warner Bros.’ DC Films releasing in 2022 .The trailer included new footage from The Batman, [Black Adam](/category/black-adam/) , The Flash, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.[Black Adam](/category/black-adam-comicmovie/) by far was the highlight of the video, with official first looks at the [Justice Society](/category/justice-society/) — Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), [Doctor Fate](/category/doctor-fate/) (Pierce Brosnan), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), and [Atom Smasher](/category/atom-smasher/) (Noah Centineo).Fans were eager to share their thoughts on all of the DC films, but especially on [Dwayne Johnson](/category/dwayne-johnson/) and the Justice Society.Not surprisingly, the reaction was mostly positive for the DC team’s live-action portrayal.
Dwayne Johnson teased the arrival of the DC Films supercut the day before , writing on Instagram: “The World Needs Heroes.Especially, a ruthless one dressed in black⚡️ Stay tuned, I’ll be dropping a dope 60 second DC UNIVERSE spot tomorrow that we created for SUPER BOWL WEEKEND ? ? ?? The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change.~ Man In Black ⚡️”
“When [Dwayne] said, ‘Welcome to Black Adam,’ it was literally like what I imagined winning the lottery to feel like,” [Aldis Hodge](/category/aldis-hodge-actor/) said in a previous interview about landing the role of Hawkman in Black Adam.
“I had been very, very much looking forward to being a part of any kind of superhero universe.I didn’t care what it was for such a long time just because I had been such a fan.I grew up on graphic novels.I got into the business so I could earn money to buy Batman toys, you know? But as far as my pursuit of this kind of vehicle — for no particular character, but just any foot in the door — it had been many years.It was like 13 to 15 years of constantly going up to bat and getting told no….So it really was a validation of those last few years of pursuit, hustle, and preparation.And for me, it was a real moment of disbelief.”
Hodge continued: “As a fan, a comic book fan, and a superhero fan, I love Hawkman’s nature.
He’s an absolute warrior.He is a savage, and a savage for the best reason.
He’s well-intentioned.But the thing that I love about him so much and that I connect to personally is his understanding and love of trying to get history right.It comes down to the cerebral part of it.He’s a professor, and because he lives so many lives, he understands; he was there.
He is history.And when it comes to certain things in textbooks, he wants to get it right.”
