Black Adam: I never said I was a Hero
Black Adam or Teth Adam was a slave from the ancient city of Kahndaq who bestowed the powers of the almighty god. Teth used the powers of the almighty for vengeance and revenge and become the Black Adam but as punishment, he was imprisoned. After 5000 years later Teth Adam is now free and is now more with his power, vengeance, and hatred.
He is on a rampage with his way of justice and unique tactics in modern times, which gained the attention of the Justice Society of America.
Now the Justice Society of America has to stop the Anti-Superhero Black Adam before he can hurt more of mankind.
Black Adam is not a peaceful hero and nor does he surrender, this Black Adam kneels before no one and is not a Hero.
On the other hand, the Justice Society of America is here to stop the unstoppable Black Adam and to show him that there is a difference between Hero and Villian, to let him know that he could be the destroyer of the world or can be the saviour.
Trailers, theatre releases, and critics
Black Adam had its World Premiere on 3rd October 2022 in Mexico City. The movie has its screening between 12th October to 20th October in Toronto, New York City, London, Miami, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Madrid.
The theatrical release of Black Adam in the United States is on 21st October 2022.
Dwayne Johnson had been repeatedly promoting the movie for a very long by telling the reporters that his DC franchise debut is going to be the change in the hierarchy of the fictional universe.
Well, the movie has gotten mixed reactions as some fans praise the movie for its fighting scenes and the direction, and some people are not OK with the anti-hero concept.
Black Adam was one the most powerful character in DC comics and the movie has established the aura of Black adam perfectly.
According to Screen Rant, Black Adam is less of a Teth Adam vs Justice Society of America and more of a Black Adam vs Hawkman showdown as the fight between Adam and Hawkman was much more compelling and entertaining than the battle between other superheroes and the actual villain of the movie Sabbac.
Although the fighting scenes of the movie are being praised, there is a lack of a back story of other heroes like Hawkman.
Dwayne Johnson as the Teth Adam
Dwayne Johnson has been working for years to fit in for Adam’s character and his passion and loyalty to the character are seen in the movie.
Black Adam is surely not an extraordinary movie but Dwayne Johnson as Teth Adam’s acting and perfect physique were certainly compelling and a treat to watch.
Black Adam has been rated PG-13 for its strong violence, excessive action, and some language.
