Black Adam


Black Adam is a 2022 American superhero film that follows the story of an ancient superhuman named Teth-Adam or Black Adam. Produced by New Line Cinema, DC Films, Seven Bucks Productions, and FlynnPictureCo. and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, the movie is a spin-off to Shazam! (2019) and the 11th film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). Dwayne Johnson plays the role of Black Adam, who is released from his magical imprisonment by a group of archaeologists to free the nation of Kahndaq from a crime syndicate known as Intergang. Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, and Pierce Brosnan appear in supporting roles.

Johnson was initially set to portray the villain Black Adam in Shazam! but later convinced the producers to give the character his own film. The screenplay was written by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab Noshirvani, with Jaume Collet-Serra directing. The film was originally planned to be released in December 2021, but the COVID-19 pandemic caused delays. Filming took place from April to August 2021 at Trilith Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, and also in Los Angeles.

Black Adam had its world premiere in Mexico City on October 3, 2022, and was released in the United States on October 21. The movie received mixed reviews from critics and grossed $393 million worldwide. However, the film was widely labeled as a box-office bomb after marketing and distribution costs were factored in. Despite the mixed reviews, Johnson's portrayal of Black Adam was praised by many viewers, and a sequel is currently in development.
