After years of waiting, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s long-awaited first movie in the DC Extended Universe is now on track to come out in theatres. Black Adam is a spinoff of the 2019 movie Shazam! And a sequel to it. It stars a famous wrestler and actor as the title anti-hero. After years of work, the movie is finally ready to be shown in theatres. Black Adam was the first person to fight for the wizard Shazam. He is as strong as Superman. But Adam’s sense of right and wrong is less rigid than the hero played by Zachary Levi. Black Adam will tell the story of a character’s return to the real world after spending a long time in a magical prison. We don’t know what kind of anger he has planned for the world.
Jungle Cruise, which stars Dwayne Johnson, was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. He also led Black Adam. Adam Rory Haines, Sztykiel, and Sohrab Noshirvani wrote the script for the movie. Adam, a member of the Justice Society of America, will be in the film, which is good news for DC fans.

What Is The Back story Of Black Adam?
Kahndaq was a cruel nation that employed magic and sorcery to enslave parts of its population during Adam’s time. Adam, however, used his position as the Champion to free his people and rule Kahndaq as its king.
Adam was originally a hero, but after the murder of his family, he turned to evil and unknowingly released the Seven Deadly Sins demons. He was imprisoned for his crimes, and after 5,000 years, Black Adam will return from jail, ready to restore Kahndaq to its former glory.
The relationship between the film and Shazam! is yet unknown. However, the Wizard’s death might be the key to Adam’s release. Black Adam is likely to reestablish his kingdom, albeit the plot of the film has not yet been disclosed. This may infuriate the JSA, leading to Adam’s battle with the superheroes. Given the normal progression of these tales, a greater threat will almost definitely develop, compelling the heroes to work together to rescue the planet.
Is There A Black Adam 2?
Though no sequels have been confirmed, DC has big plans for Black Adam in the DCEU. In 2017, Johnson revealed that Adam would be pitted against Shazam in a future film.
“So we came up with the idea of making a scenario where Black Adam has his own movie and Captain Marvel, Shazam, has his own movie,” he explained. “That’s how we’re building our world, and then we’ll be able to come together at some point.”
In the future of the DCEU, Superman actor Henry Cavill teased a possible crossover between Black Adam and the Man of Steel. “There is definitely some kind of work toward that,” he said specifically.
Even if nothing has been officially announced, the character will undoubtedly have a future in the DCEU in some form. In recent years, Black Adam has made a comeback in the comics, even becoming a key member of the Justice League. So it appears that DC intends to make the character a major player in the coming years. Of course, whether or not Black Adam gets a sequel is entirely dependent on the success of the film once it is released.
