Having languished in development hell for over 15 years, Black Adam also features the likes of JSA members such as Hawkman and Doctor Fate.

Dwayne Johnson claims that Black Adam is the beginning of a new chapter for the DCEU and is keen to see Doctor Fate return alongside familiar heroes.

Of course, one of the biggest talking points for the DCEU is Henry Cavill’s Superman. Johnson has continuously praised Cavill’s portrayal of Kal-El and fans have been eager for him to return.

With the JSA finally on screen and movies such as The Flash still to come – there might be a small dwindle of hope left for the DCEU.
