The release of Black Adam is only days away with a banging premiere. Dwayne Johnson has been going out of his way to make fans realize how important this movie is for him. Characters both old and new would be joining the actor onscreen. The anticipation for the film has had so much build-up that the reviewers can only expect to go ham on the project once the movie is released.

Starring Johnson, along with Noah Centineo, Pierce Brosnan, Sasha Shahi, and Quintessa Swindell along with the appearance of Henry Cavill. The characters would bend out to create an entirely new direction for the DCEU, enforcing other ideas and projects that may already be underway with Warner Bros. Discovery.

Black Adam’s Reviews Might Be Much Lower Than Expected

The current reviews of Black Adam all call the movie to be an immediate success and critics cannot stop praising Dwayne Johnson for his outstanding performance. Rotten Tomatoes, on the other hand, only gave the movie a 54%. This completely changes the tides of the movie as the movie was set to be the kickstart of the DCEU’s phase of success.

Fans compared the movie’s hype to that of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice as well as Man of Steel. Even though Henry Cavill would be making a banging return to the franchise after a lot of conflicts, the reviews still seem to be mediocre, perhaps killing the anticipation of multiple fans. Movies like The Batman and Justice League too were overly hyped up, only to be either not that up to the excitement or completely away from what the fans had wanted.

“Ultimately, the needs of the DC Universe butt up against the overwhelming star power of Dwayne Johnson, and the film ends up losing many of the entertaining qualities it might have had.”

“The latest installment in the DC Extended Universe too often succumbs to the conventions of its genre, but some compelling performances and director Jaume Collet-Serra’s ebullient B-movie flourishes prove to be sufficient compensation.”

The reviews no matter what, still makes the fans want to stay loyal to the actors and the movie, wanting to believe that Dwayne Johnson can truly change the course of DCEU movies.

Fans Choose To Stick By Black Adam Even After Getting Such A Low Rating

The low rating for Black Adam is not enough for the fans to push them down from their motivation. The audience that has been waiting to step into the theatres and witness the power of Teth Adam on the big screen is more than happy to not let something like this strike them down.

Even though to some extent, they have been blaming how critics usually rate DC movies lower than they actually are, giving the example of The Batman. This may not be the best argument presented by Twitter fans but, it surely brings out their admiration for the belief in change within the franchise.

This does not stop the fans from also pointing out as to even though some DC movies are given high ratings, their audience score averages around 80%, giving out the general idea of response towards these movies.

Black Adam is set to release on 21st October 2022.
