Quintessa Swindell is set to play Cyclone (aka Maxine Hunke) opposite Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in “Black Adam,” DC and New Line’s highly anticipated superhero movie, according to an individual with knowledge of the project.Cyclone is a junior member of the Justice Society with the power to manipulate wind and sound. It was previously announced that Aldis Hodge has been cast as Hawkman, while Noah Centineo will play Atom Smasher. Both characters are members of DC’s Justice Society. Sarah Shahi has also been cast as Adrianna Tomaz.The first look at how the Justice Society will appear onscreen came on Aug. 22 during Warner Bros.’ virtual Comic-Con alternative, DC FanDome, courtesy of two “Black Adam” teasers introduced by Johnson. The clips, which were motion-comics created entirely using concept art, explained that Black Adam was once a member of an advanced ancient civilization chosen by the Council of Wizards — the same group whose last surviving member gave Billy Batson his powers in 2019’s “Shazam!” — to liberate his people from slavery.Also Read: Lionsgate Acquires Neil Burger's Sci-Fi Thriller 'Voyagers'However, Black Adam’s brand of Justice was too cruel and vindictive and in response, the Council imprisoned him, seemingly for all eternity.

This time, superheroes have emerged, and four of them — Cyclone, Atom Smasher, Dr. Fate and Hawkman — unite as the Justice Society to challenge Black Adam.
