Black Adam is DC’s newest upcoming superhero venture, a standalone movie based on the character of the same name. The movie is pretty highly anticipated, at least by DC fans who are set to watch the eleventh movie in the DC Extended Universe.
They’re hoping for a big show to be put on considering the huge budget the movie received, which according to reports reached the height of more than $150 million. The spin-off movie from Shazam! isn’t out yet, but it recently had a test screening run about a day ago to collect early reviews from attendants, with a special guest hiding.

Black Adam Test Screening Rakes In Positive Reviews
Dwayne Johnson is set to star yet again in another mega-budget movie. DC hopes that Black Adam is able to make a difference in the competition between the MCU and the DCEU, and according to the recent test screening reviews, DC is going in the right direction.

However, one of the biggest surprises for the test screening audience was not the movie shown, but one of the attendants who was present. Dwayne Johnson himself showed up for the select few who saw the movie earlier than the public, and the audiences were shocked but happy.
Johnson posts about the whole incident on Instagram, after which he requests reviews about Black Adam by the people present at the screening. One fan said-
“The question was asked earlier, ‘what makes this movie different?’. The answer was you (Johnson), you have like a presence and charisma that brings like a whole new feel to the movie and makes it unique. To see you in this role now, what you’ve become, is really exciting.”
The Rock further continued his surprise appearance at the screening, asking fans what they thought about the ending of the movie, to which one person replied-
“That was probably one of my favorite parts of Black Adam”
He then asked what they loved about the movie, a fan chimed in, saying-
“You don’t know what’s gonna happen next.”
It seems like the early birds are loving the movie, with such positive words for the movie. One thing to look out for now is surely the ending of the movie, which we’re guessing is going to be amazing considering the emphasis put on it by Johnson during the appearance at the screening.

Despite the positive reviews received from the audience, as seen in Dwayne Johnson’s Instagram video, Marvel fans have not put their spades down. They are terrorizing the positive vibe that the test screening reviews instilled in DC fans, no holds barred.

One fan said that the new movie gives Avengers (2012) vibes, which at the time was seen as being massively overrated-

This fan takes the slander to the next level, saying that the negative critic’s reviews from Don’t Worry Darling (also from Warner Bros.) are going to translate onto Black Adam-
WBs 2nd last movie this year
Don't worry darling,has opened to 60% with 5 reviews so far
Expecting black Adam to beat it with 6% 🔥

This fan questions WBD’s promotion strategy, which to be honest, is pretty sub-par-
I honestly don't know what the hell WBD is waiting on to heavily market Black Adam. This movie is 50 days away coming off of nothing but DC drama these last few months. I'm guessing they're gonna rely on the critic reviews for promotion… IDK 😐

There’s already divided opinion, albeit among rival fans, over Dwayne Johnson’s new superhero movie. But lets at least be positive about Black Adam, considering its multi-million dollar budget.
Black Adam releases in the United States on October 21, 2022.
