Warning! Spoilers ahead for Black Adam.Star Dwayne Johnson already has a plan for Black Adam 2, showing that he wants his character to compete with all the great DC superheroes. After nearly 15 years of fighting to get the film made, Johnson was finally able to bring Black Adam to the big screen. The film has received mostly negative reviews from critics, but has been a huge hit with fans, who praise the film’s non-stop action and Johnson’s superhero chassis. Black Adam tells the story of Teth-Adam, an ancient being endowed with the powers of the Egyptian gods who emerges from his centuries-long captivity to dispense his violent form of justice to the modern world.
In addition to introducing Johnson’s Black Adam, the film also introduces a number of other notable DC heroes. The Justice Society of America has a lot in Black Adam, starring Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman, Pierce Brosnan’s Dr. Fate, Noah Centineo’s Atom Smasher and Quintessa Swindell’s Cyclone. As many rumors went before the film’s release, Black Adam features the return of Henry Cavill’s Superman in a post-credits scene, kicking off an interesting dynamic. Black Adam also references a number of other DC heroes, including Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Shazam, and Cyborg.
In a recent interview with The playlistDwayne Johnson discusses what he hopes to see in the unconfirmed Black Adam 2. Citing the many DC references in the film, Johnson reveals that he has ambitious goals for Black Adam’s future. Watch Johnson’s full response below:
“Man, I would love that. On our side, me and my producers feel like this is why we recognized all the other DC superheroes in Black Adam, even though those scenes are with all the posters and of course by real characters “In our world, we recognize everyone in the DCEU, and they all have to cross over, they all have to work together, they have to work together and they all have to fight. For me it’s all a possibility. I wouldn’t close that door. We won’t It’s our side at Seven Bucks We don’t close the door on all that I gotta tell you what I like the most, what gives me the most satisfaction about “Black Adam” is ultimately what we’ve done with the movie is just listen to the fans.”
How The Black Adam Ending Is Making A Sequel
although Black Adam works as its own standalone story with villain Sabbac dead by the film’s conclusion, the film very clearly sets up a sequel and other team-up films. The return of Cavill’s Superman during Black AdamThe post-credits scene is perhaps the biggest hint of things to come, with Johnson and the film’s producers previously sharing their desire to see a fight between the two characters. The return of Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller also raises some interesting questions and hints that the Suicide Squad could potentially make an appearance in Black Adam 2 or another movie down the road.
Black Adam makes no secret of his intent to set up an entire universe of movies, and the plethora of references to other DC heroes would suggest that nothing is off the table. With clear nods to Batman, Wonder Woman and the Flash Black Adam however, raises some questions about which actors will play these heroes when they return. Black Adam’s box office will be the main deciding factor in whether or not Black Adam 2 happening, and the film’s first run would suggest it’s definitely on the right track.
