Are you a fan of the DC universe? If you are then, I presume you like evil much more than the person who does good, am I right? I can’t deny that fact too. A hero is shaped by the villain, the more powerful and challenging the villain is, the more we like that superhero. It’s kind of ironic, but it’s true. One of the most popular villains is Black Adam from DC world, who is a predecessor of Captain Marvel who fought his way to modern times.
What if I say you can get both the qualities in one: That is good and evil, both in one form? You may interrupt me at this point and say that’s absurd. But no, before you say that, the person suffers from multiple personality disorder. I beg to differ; such a person with both qualities in one is called the Anti-Hero.
They don’t possess the same qualities as good morals or idealism as a typical superhero. But the actions they do are morally correct, but the reason behind it might not be to catch the evil but self-gain or any other reason for their own benefit.
Coming back to the topic, from the turn of the 21st century, Black Adam has been identified as an anti-hero. Also, if you want to gauge the popularity of Black Adam, it’s not a surprise that he was ranked as the 16th greatest comic book villain by IGN.
All about Black Adam
It’s no surprise that although comic book enthusiasts know about Black Adam for the people who primarily watch movies, Black Adam has been a mystery. That mystery will end in July 2022; it was to end in December 2021. But this pandemic has stolen many things from us, including postponing the releases of blockbuster movies like Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom or Eternals.
The DC universe is picking up pace with many movies planned for the future. A major part of the Marvel Universe is known for superhero fanatics, but the same can’t be said for the DC Universe. But with so much planning ahead, if DC is somehow able to pull these things off, it will establish a new position in the hearts of superhero fanatics.
The Cast of Black Adam
The perfect person was chosen to play the part of Black Adam: Dwayne Johnson or more popularly known by the name of The Rock was chosen to play the part of Black Adam. The selection of other cast members was also thought very carefully, I must say.
- Noah Centineo as the Atom Smasher
- Aldis Hodge as the Hawkman
- Quintessa Swindel as the Cyclone
- Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate
Sarah Shahi as Adrianna Tomaz, a university professor in Kahndaq. Kahndaq is the place where Black Adam had been captured for the past 5000 years.
A disruptive and unstoppable global force of a message from the man in black himself 🌍 ⬛️⚡️
BLACK ADAM is coming July 29, 2022.

The Future Plans
If we talk about what’s going to come next, Shazam and Black Adam, both the rivals, are going to meet in a future film and will fight, of course. Also, Henry Cavill told the media that there could be a face-off between Superman and Black Adam, but that’s planned surely after Balck Adam and Shazam meet.
So, DC won’t leave this supervillain’s story midway. The tradeoff is we have to wait for a bit to actually see what Dc holds for us and whether or not it’s up to the expectation of what the audience is expecting, apparently.
