black adam is the only other DCEU movie coming out this year after Shazam! fury of the gods was recently pushed back to March 2023, and surprisingly, Warner Bros. Discovery and DC Films are relying too heavily on Dwayne Johnson’s first superhero blockbuster.
black adam got the same test scores as Bat girl, but the first one was full of spectacle, and the story was modified through highly publicized retakes. black adam is now set and ready to introduce The Rock as the titular anti-hero alongside the Justice League’s potential replacement: the Justice Society of America. black adam marks the first live-action film appearance of the JSA and many of its members, including Hawkman and Doctor Fate.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been actively promoting black adam recently and shared a new character poster for Doctor Fate yesterday, captioned: “Fate makes no mistakes.” You can see the poster below.
james link alum Pierce Brosnan is set to play Doctor Fate/Kent Nelson in black Adam, and fans are particularly looking forward to his performance as a superhero. Doctor Fate is often compared to Marvel’s Doctor Strange, and while both characters possess similar powers, Doctor Fate is older and more powerful than Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme. In fact, Doctor Fate is one of the strongest characters in DC Comics, with powers rivaling those of Black Adam and Superman. Pierce Brosnan recently spoke to Total Film about Doctor Fate and said:
“I’m the oldest of the bunch. I’m sure he’s one of the oldest characters in the pantheon of comic book characters. He’s an archaeologist. He has powers to foresee the future, raise the dead, and teleport, while wearing a gold helmet.” .
“Absolutely [On the necessity of the helmet]. It is a blessing and a curse. It’s almost like a drug addiction in some ways. It takes a lot of energy to wear the helmet. It was a very well designed outfit and helmet, which I really like. Jaume Collet-Serra is very inclusive in collaboration. He was wonderful in the sense that he would send me designs for the helmet, so I could participate in the look of it.”
Black Adam will expand the DC Extended Universe
Dwayne Johnson has been making fun of it black adam will change the hierarchy of the DCEU since the announcement of the film. Johnson has been gathering to play the character for over a decade and leaves no stone unturned to make sure black adam doesn’t disappoint. The movie already has Amanda Waller in a supporting role, confirming her connection to the current DCEU timeline, and will feature the JSA, likely replacing the Justice League.
There are plans for spin-offs and more black adam stories in the future as well, and Johnson has also hinted at a battle with Shazam and Superman in the future. Let’s hope WBD and DC Films don’t screw it up and deprive fans of that amazing moment.
