“We want to expand the DC Universe, introduce Black Adam and introduce other characters, and also into the JSA [Justice Society of America]”The JSA is a group of superheroes that predates the famous Justice League. “I said it was a new era in the DC Universe that I love. Yes, we’re going to introduce new characters, but also the new era means we’re listening to the fans.
“You have to listen to the fans and for a very long time, for years, the fans were screaming, they were upset,” Johnson added.
“We have established Adam as the strongest and most unstoppable force on this planet. The strongest and most unstoppable force in the entire universe has been on the sidelines for far too long. So myself Seven Bucks [Productions], Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, we fought and we weren’t going to take no for an answer.

When he appeared on fall onJohnson also reminded the audience that he was actually cast as superhero Black Adam 15 years ago.
“Black Adam was big and it was a passion project of mine. Just yesterday I got the original article telling me I was playing Black Adam 15 years ago. I pushed and struggled so hard for this movie to be made.” He continued: “15 years ago, like you and I, we were in different positions in our careers. So when we announced that I was going to play Black Adam, it was just harder for the studio partners to look past the Justice League. They saw Superman and Batman and Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash.”
Johnson has acknowledged that he likes these heroes, but his character has an edge over each of them. “Black Adam has all of Superman’s powers, but Superman won’t kill because he has a code of honor and a code of ethics that we appreciate. But Black Adam will kill you.”
