Showdowns between two popular characters from the same universe are always one of the most exciting things to prospect for fans. In the case of the DC Extended Universe, a fight between Black Adam and Superman would look amazing, and fans want it to happen too.
Black Adam, the eleventh movie in the DCEU, will star Dwayne Johnson as the titular character, an antihero character from Kahndaq who just got freed from five thousand years of imprisonment. He’ll be set free into the modern world of today, and while that does sound terrifying it also sets up an exciting fight waiting to happen between Black Adam and Superman.
Fans Are Dying To Have A Black Adam Vs. Superman Fight, To An Extent
The idea of Superman fighting other major characters in the DCEU has already been done with Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. So what’s the harm in having Black Adam fight Superman?
DCEU fans are currently setting their sights on a fight between The Rock‘s character and Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, with insider KC Walsh hinting in a tweet about a scene involving the latter in Black Adam.

This further sparks the hyped-up fight between the two characters, and fans on Twitter are scrambling to make it happen. But there’s a portion of fans who are not too convinced about it happening too-
I maintain that a fight between Black Adam and Henry Cavill Superman would look cool, but a long-term rivalry between those two being prioritized and built up by WB over Teth's far more substantial, natural relationship with Shazam would suck.🤷♂️ #HenryCavillSuperman #BlackAdam pic.twitter.com/bCSlnMxve6

Cavill still has one more movie left in his DC contract, so why not? –

To be honest, we’re talking about Superman here-

This user is hyping up Cavill’s appearance-

That does make sense, since Cavill himself confirmed plans for a showdown between his and Johnson’s character, but only after Teth meets Shazam-
You two need to understand stakes.
By having Black Adam face Superman first you establish the kind of scale and power those two are at.
This is what sets up Shazam vs Black Adam later.
Having BA lose to Shazam first and then Superman can't beat him ? It's lame.

These speculations and hopes for the ultimate showdown are an exciting thing to be a part of, but it’s still too early to say since Henry Cavill’s appearance still hasn’t been confirmed.
Black Adam’s Post-Credits Scene Reportedly Involves Superman
Fans who were hoping for a showdown between Teth Adam and Clark Kent can rest easy now, but only with a grain of salt.
It has been reported by Giant Freaking Robot that the post-credits scene will have Henry Cavill’s Superman as well as Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller.
The “trusted and proven resources” of Giant Freaking Robot claim that the much-anticipated post-credits scene for Black Adam will show Adam resting in his throne room only to be asked to join Waller’s team, what comes next is an epic appearance from Superman backing her up.
This is truly exciting news, but as we said, take it with a HUGE grain of salt because these are merely reports, and not confirmed cameos.
Black Adam will be released in theaters on October 21, 2022.
