While the film introduces Black Adam as the lead, we will also see Doctor Fate, Hawkman, Atom Smasher, and Isis join the DCEU. The film will follow the return of the anti-hero into the modern world, after his imprisonment 5000 years ago.

Dwayne Johnson and his fans

WB-Discovery has banked a lot of the promotion of Black Adam on the actor’s charisma and his reach with fans, which seems to have worked well. Dwayne Johnson has been campaigning harder than ever, meeting fans on multiple occasions.

He has styled himself as a man of the fans as he asserts to know what they expect from him. Previously, many fans on Twitter had been requesting Dwayne Johnson to include Henry Cavill’s Superman in his film. In reaction, the actor replied:

I’ve learned to always listen to the audience because they will always lead you to where you need to go.
