Black Adam has been arguably one of the most anticipated and hyped-up films of 2022 so far, and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has never once let the greek flame of anticipation sputter. All his public appearances, interviews, and the pervasive promotion of his superhero debut had let the fans’ expectations reach all the way to the dark side of the moon. But how much of that hype is just hot air?
Well as it turns out, almost close to none!
As expected from Johnson, this anti-hero is just what The Rock was cooking in the background all this time. When the audience finally smelled the aroma of this movie in its initial reviews, they became believers in the electrifying performance of Dwayne Johnson in Black Adam.
The People’s Opinion Of Black Adam
Black Adam social reactions are officially coming in as critics give their thoughts on Dwayne Johnson’s DCEU film. After being cast nearly a decade ago, Johnson is officially making his way into the DCEU as the DC icon Black Adam. While Warner Bros. originally wanted Shazam! to feature Black Adam, Johnson persuaded the studio to let both characters have their own standalone films before they eventually clash on the big screen.
As the tweets pour in and the reviewers’ opinions get out there, Black Adam is substantiating its foundation as the next best thing after the legend Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Black Adam is roughly a week away from opening in theaters worldwide, and as usual, various members of the press have been able to screen the film in advance as they are now sharing their first impressions online. And almost all of them are aggressively here to praise the film!
DC’s #BlackAdam ROCKS! Tons of action, characters you’re instantly invested in & terrific pacing. Dwayne Johnson finds a great balance in being menacing & badass, but also empathetic. Especially loved Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman & Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate. More JSA movies please! pic.twitter.com/YSCco9zYA3

Black Adam is everything that I hoped it would be and more. A Snyder-esque antihero spectacle that delivers big action and impressive set pieces. Dwayne Johnson transforms into Black Adam, a role that he was born to play. Centineo & Swindell are so damn fun to watch. #BlackAdam pic.twitter.com/V1tY0liyph

With reactions this crazy and exciting, its no secret that this movie is going to leave an impression on the audiences, one like what we had only seen once before with Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
But, that’s not all. We also have information that Henry Cavill’s Man Of Steel may make a comeback with the events that transpired in Black Adam.
The Superman Connection
We had our assumptions about Henry Cavill’s Superman making an appearance in Black Adam, Which turned out to be true after Dwayne Johnson confirmed it himself. But what fans were hoping for is the potential implications of Superman’s cameo. Now, these questions are satiated after the reviews which imply that a potential Man Of Steel 2 can be in the works.
We don’t know for certain, but the signs are there, and the beacon of hope still shines bright.
Black Adam, will be in cinemas on October 21, 2022
