Black Adam is finally hitting the theatres after a long-awaited hype, satisfying the anticipation of fans all around the world. Much like any other action-packed superhero movie, fan theories, headcanons, and conspiracy theories begin to circulate the more the release date approaches. The movie has been spiraling with plot ideas and theories, letting any means of plot points for the fans be the center of an entirely bizarre yet acceptable DC adventure.
So the ideas popping out within the fans’ minds were very well reaching the cast of the movie as well. Some of these ideas are so good, that Dwayne Johnson himself seemed impressed by them. Perhaps even good enough to sprout ideas for future projects that might include these characters.
Fan Ideas About Black Adam Inspire Dwayne Johnson
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the cast of Black Adam, including Dwayne Johnson, Pierce Brosnan, Noah Centineo, Quintessa Swindell, and Aldis Hodge; all gathered around to review fan theories revolving around the Justice Society of America, Black Adam, as well as other characters separately.
Amongst the theories, the one that struck the most to the lead star was about Black Adam teaming up with Superman’s arch nemesis, Lex Luthor, to defeat their common enemy, the Kryptonian. This led Johnson to even comment about how he basically sounds like a writer for DC and that the idea was not bad at all.
This brings out the fact that perhaps a Lex Luthor-Black Adam team-up against Superman is a very welcoming idea to Dwayne Johnson. The preceding theory stated how Lex Luthor actually revived Dwayne Johnson’s character purely to defeat his foe. Joining the two, they both seem to fit well and synchronize well, focusing on a possible partnership between the two.
Other Theories About Black Adam
Doctor Fate, using his magic, might be the one who resets the time stream for the DCEU instead of The Flash, which was another theory that popped up in the fans’ minds. Amanda Waller recruiting Black Adam, accompanied by Deathstroke, could be setting up a Suicide Squad against the Justice League, explaining the Superman cameo as well, who she already has her main focus on.
The question of what would happen if the Justice Society of America were to clash with the Justice League can also come up. Such a theory challenges the powers of both teams and pushes their ability to work as a team. This theory, however, led to the cast discussing how the JSA wasn’t actually fully built, hinting once again to more members were to be joining, mainly Hawkgirl who has been purposefully omitted from the movie.
Black Adam will be available to watch in theatres from 21st October 2021.
