Major PEACEMAKER Character Confirmed To Appear In BLACK ADAM - SPOILERS

Following speculation about a possible connection between Peacemaker and Black Adam, a major character from the HBO Max series has been revealed to be appearing in the film.

Black Adam's release is fast approaching. The highly anticipated film is not entirely standalone, as it includes major DC characters like Doctor Fate, Hawkman and the rest of the Justice Society. Black Adam will also feature a significant tie to the Task Force X universe, with an appearance from Amanda Waller, played by Viola Davis, reprising the role from 2016's Suicide Squad, The Suicide Squad and HBO Max's Peacemaker.

Now, there is confirmation of another Peacemaker player having a presence in Black Adam: Emilia Harcourt, played by Jennifer Holland. Harcourt made her big-screen debut in The Suicide Squad. The character was an agent who aided Task Force X in their mission throughout the film. After that, she played a main role in the aforementioned John Cena-led series.

Harcourt quickly became a fan-favorite following her appearance on the show. In late 2021, a rumor circulated about Holland's involvement in Black Adam. James Gunn even stated that a Peacemaker character would make the jump to the theatrical side of the DCEU, but nothing was confirmed until now. 

The Home of DCEU Twitter page shared a BTS image of Jennifer Holland alongside Aldis Hodge's Hawkman and Pierce Brosnan's Doctor Fate on the Black Adam set, confirming the character's involvement in Teth-Adam's standalone feature: 

Speaking to The Wrap in early 2022, Holland was asked about the rumor regarding her character appearing in Black Adam. The actress stated she couldn't discuss Harcourt's future.

She did say, however, that even though she was aware of the rumor, she didn't know who was set to appear in the movie: "I'm assuming you’re talking about 'Black Adam.' I've seen all of the rumors. [...] I haven't seen that film. I have no idea who was in that film."

Peacemaker Already Has A Link To Black Adam

They may not seem compatible, given that one project focuses on a god-like being with mystical powers and the other on a grumpy vigilante, but Peacemaker actually included a connection to Black Adam's world through an easy-to-miss but exciting Easter egg.

In episode 4 of the HBO Max series, "The Choad Less Traveled," a newspaper was shown with a headline that mentioned Kahndaq, Teth-Adam's nation, and the criminal organization known as Intergang.

The paper stated: "Intergang seizes control in nation of Kahndaq."

Both Intergang and Kahndaq are expected to be featured prominently in Black Adam, and Peacemaker may have served to plant the seeds for some of the things Teth-Adam and the JSA will be dealing with in the movie. Though expected, given Amanda Waller's confirmed part, Holland being in Black Adam may have intriguing implications for the DCEU.

The fact that a character like Harcourt, who had so far been in the relatively grounded side of the franchise, will appear in the Dwayne Johnson-led film could theoretically open the possibility (however remote it may be) of the antihero crossing paths with more street-level characters like Peacemaker and Vigilante at some point in the future. 

Black Adam flies into theaters on October 21, 2022.

Maybe I'm overthinking this but what IS the Justice Society in this universe? Are they a parallel group to the Justice League? Did they come first, a legacy team, or are they new, Amanda Waller's non-supervillain squad? I dunno, probably am.

It would be a complete asshole move of missed opportunity if the rock and cena don't share screen time as black adam and peacemaker in a future project. i want to see this bad.

Peacemaker was a pleasant suprise. I enjoyed the entire team. Harcourt was awesome and would be happy to see more of her. Would also like to see more Adebayo and Vigilante.

This is days old...

Anyway, glad to see James Gunn and The Rock at least TRYING to rebuild the DCEU.
This also opens the possibility of Black Adam meeting Peacemaker.

@TheHumanSpider2 - But in what capacity? Is Suicide Squad the reboot of the DCEU? One has to wonder what's even canon at this point.

If this movie and the flash are good do you just try to build with everything and try to peace together after flash point and keep the universe going?
