The action and personality of Black Adam serve as a guide for the DC Universe to head down a new and promising path, as we tell you in our review.
The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change, and that is demonstrated by Black Adam, a movie starring Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’ who definitely put heart and soul into one of the most dangerous antiheroes of DC Comics, as we see in this review.
On September 3, 2014, Johnson announced his incorporation into the DC Comics Cinematic Universe to embody Black Adam, a character that the former WWE wrestler had long sought.

In 2022, The Rock clearly justified why he was chosen to play the villain created by Otto Binder and Clarence Charles Beck.
Black Adam, of which we present his review, presents us with the story of a Kandaq slave who received the powers of the magicians, whom the antihero betrayed to free his people, which allegedly leads him to be imprisoned by more than 5000 years.
In the present a woman named Adriana, a single mother who has great knowledge of the history and culture of Kandaq. This woman manages to free the antihero who is named as the people’s champion.
In 2019 we met Shazam on the big screen, a hero discovering how to use his powers and take advantage of it. In 2022 Black Adam shows us the opposite contrast of Billy Batson. Teth Adam is aware of the great power that he carries, but he does not consider himself a hero.
Compared to Shazam!, Black Adam does not seek the approval of society, he seeks to end the oppression that Intergang, and the problem that the Justice Society of America represents, who intervene at the request of Amanda Waller.
But everything gets complicated when a crown made of Eternium, a rare and powerful mineral found only in Kandaq, will unleash a danger that could put the planet and the entire universe at risk.
And with you the Justice Society
Not only Black Adam shines in his film, a separate mention deserves the four members of the Justice Society of America, one of the oldest teams in the DC Universe, which arises in the DCEU, which promises great projects in the future. .
The JSA (for its acronym in English) shows an ideal mix between experience, leadership, youth and great commitment to justice, despite the fact that its vision of this concept differs from that of Black Adam.
Aldis Hodge as Carter Hall / Hawkman shows his skills as a leader and mentor, in addition to the mythology of Thanagar and the ninth Metal have finally reached the big screen.
On the other hand, Pierce Brosnan introduces us to a wise Doctor Fate, one of the characters who, despite being one of the most expert in the JSA, begins to have his own doubts about his powers and his sense of justice.
And the youth side of this team is printed by two heroes like Cyclone and Atom Smasher, who have their first mission, in which they show great chemistry and the events of the film make them learn the responsibilities of a superhero.
SMASH Verdict ⭐⭐⭐
Black Adam is a movie that gives a new direction to the DC Universe. Its action and the adrenaline of the film make it a more than entertaining option, where Dwayne Johnson looks like the antihero of the DC Universe, in his darkest facet, something that makes him very unpredictable, something that is difficult in a superhero movie.
The entrance of the Justice Society to the DC Universe is an important point to lead the next movies to interesting encounters with other heroes like SupermanBatman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Aquaman.
While there are great foundations laid by Zack Snyder’s films, filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra has managed to enter the great deck of creators and filmmakers that DC Comics can count on for future projects.

A dark age is approaching SMASH and DC Comics Mexico
Black Adam had it all. The power of the gods, the adoration of his countrymen and the love of Isis, his beautiful queen. Then, in an instant, everything was horribly taken from him.
And this nearly unstoppable being launched into a bloody revenge, barely contained by the combined might of the world’s superheroes. They stripped the man named Teth-Adam of the magic that made him a threat, but that loss was nothing compared to the death of his beloved wife.
SMASH and DC Comics Mexico bring you Black Adam: The Dark Ages. The Man in Black is back!
