DCFanDome 2021 released the first teaser for Black Adam. And post that Dwayne “Rock” Johnson made a bold statement by claiming that if anybody can give Superman a fair fight, it will be Black Adam.
After the first footage of Black Adam was released, someone noted that the only person who can stop Superman is Black Adam. On the same, Johnsons tweeted back, “Black Adam’s greatest superpower is magic. They both fly at light speed. They both are unstoppable forces. But only one will kill the other. And we know who that is.” Read his tweet below.
Fico, thank you my friend.
Remember, Superman’s greatest weakness isn’t kryptonite, it’s magic.
Black Adam’s greatest superpower is magic.
They both fly at light speed.
They both are unstoppable forces.
But only one will kill the other.
And we know who that is. #BlackAdam https://t.co/nCPUCItqQK

Since Superman’s DC debut, his response to magic has varied in the 80+ years. The Man of Steel is not “weak” to magic, instead, he is not as invulnerable as he is to other things.
Black Adam Vs Superman: Collision Course Teased Previously
This isn’t the first time a collision course between the superhero and the anti-hero has been teased. The first time when Black Adam was announced, Johnsons said, “One fine day… that’s coming. That’s in the cards.” And in response, the Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill added fuel to the fire.
Black Adam’s Teaser Details
The first teaser of Black Adam shows a group of archaeologists exploring a cave. During that, they are hit by a lightning bolt. And they see Black Adam standing in front of them in a cloak. Before anyone could respond, Black Adam picks one of them by the throat and turns him into dust. Others start firing bullets but Black Adam catches the bullet and starts rising in the air.
Black Adam producer Hiram Garcia said recently, “I’m thrilled for what we have created and the vision that [director] Jaume Collet-Serra has for the film is exceptional,” “There were a lot of aspects to this film that were important to us, from big dramatic storylines that we wanted to explore to make sure we were properly representing an antihero of Black Adam’s caliber to the visual effects and displaying Black Adam’s powers in a way that we think the fans will love.”
Black Adam will release in theaters on July 29, 2022.
