The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change, and it is likely to fall on the broad shoulders of Dwayne Johnson aka Black Adam. The synopsis of the upcoming DC movie was recently unveiled revealing details about Black Adam's imprisonment and release.
Warner Bros' synopsis aimed at giving fans a more comprehensive understanding of Black Adam's past, and how he rose to power 5,000 years ago. This is a character who was bestowed with the almighty powers of the Egyptian Gods, and he is ready to unleash his wrath on the DCEU.
Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam Will Change The Conventional Form Of Superhero Movies
Black Adam's role in the DC comics is not equivalent to a superhero. Director Jaume Collet-Serra hinted in an interview with Total Film Magazine that Black Adam's persona will be of a disruptor that breaks the conventional pattern of superhero movies. Fans can expect him to be a ruthless villain with a tragic backstory that affected his conscience.
According to producer Hiram Garcia, the movie will be rated PG-13, but Black Adam will push limits similar to The Dark Knight. The subtle mention of a high kill count in the movie has fans wondering about the fate of DC superheroes.
Iconic DC characters like Doctor Fate, Hawkman, Atom Smasher, and Cyclone are also rumored to debut in this movie. Fans are eager to see how Zachary Levi's Shazam will hold up against the might of Black Adam, but the two forces of magic may not collide before the third film in the franchise.
What do you think about Black Adam's powers in the DC Universe? Do you think he is stronger than Shazam and Superman combined?
