Interviewed by SR during the San Diego ComiCon 2022, the young Noah Centineo expressed himself in a decidedly positive way on the possibility of a spin-off on Atom Smasher or the character he will play in Black Adam alongside, or rather against, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Noah Centineo does not rule out an Atom Smasher spin-off
If you want it, I am there. We are all here. Do you know why? It’s not just that it’s a fun story and beautiful characters but also why we had so much fun making this movie. I couldn’t be happier and luckier. It is usually always a pleasure to make a film, learning a lot of things. But this time I found a family. I was really lucky.
These statements were matched by similar statements by colleague Aldis Hodge, who plays Hawkman, and with the words of the producer Hiram Garcia:
In our mind it’s all part of a shared universe. All these guys exist together. We just focus on telling this story, on telling Black Adam and the Justice Society of America. But the way we see it and our ambitions for the universe are all shared. And I think you are starting to feel the ripples of these guys in the universe.
Noah Centineo will be Albert Rothstein or the young hero Atom Smasher. Able to control its molecular structure by increasing size, strength and resistance. This version of the character should be based on the one created by David S. Goyer and James Dale Robinson who first appeared in JSA Secret Files # 1 of 1999.
