The Justice Society’s arrival is undoubtedly one of the significant developments in DCEU as this will showcase some of the essential characters from DCEU. In addition to Brosnan’s Dr. Fate, the movie will introduce Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Adis Hodge as Hawkman, and Quintessa Swindell will play the character of Cyclone.
The film will also feature James Cusati-Moyer and Bodhi Sabongui in some significant roles that have not been disclosed yet.
Dwayne Johnson has been continuously teasing and posting hints about his character for the past few months. Even he had shared his workout pics on social media giving glimpses about his character. Johnson in those workout pictures looked ripped, and the fans have been blown away by his transformation. Rock has now become bulkier and ripped than the previous version of himself.
Johnson is no stranger when it comes to filmmaking previously; with his presence in the films such as the Fast & Furious franchise, Jumanji, and Hobs and Shaw, he has impressed the audience worldwide. And with his new role as Black Adam, we are sure that he will entertain his fans this time.
DCEU’s recent projects like Joker, Justice League, and a light-hearted movie like Shazam(released in 2019), we cannot tell about the nature of Dwayne Johnson’s character in this new film. According to our assumption, the character will be dark, but as Dwayne Johnson is part of this movie, we can expect the nature of Black Adam to be a bit light-hearted for the kids.
Black Adam will be going to hit the theaters on 29 July 2022.
About Black Adam and his powers
Black Adam was a corrupted ancient Egyptian predecessor of Captain Marvel(Shazam). He is considered one of the sworn enemies of Shazam. Since the turn of the 21st century, Adam’s character has been re-defined by DC Comics writers Jerry Ordway, Geoff Johns, and David S. Goyer as a depraved antihero trying to clear his name and reputation.
Coming to his powers, he poses Superhuman stamina of Shu, the strength of Amon, Horus’s speed, the wisdom of Zehuti, the ability of Aten to summon magical lightning thunder powers, and the courage of Mehen.
He has been part of the Injustice Society, Justice League, Justice Society of America, Suicide Squad, and Black Marvel Family. As Dwayne Johnson will play this character, it will be interesting to see how Dwane represents the powers of Black Adam on-screen. I bet it will be an exciting experience for the fans.
