The trailer for ‘Black Adam’ SDCC 2022 got me excited to see where DC takes against the champion

Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam

One of the many trailers shown at SDCC 2022 was another for the upcoming DC Comics Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson movie, black Adamwhich brings up the fact that the titular character will be much more than an anti-hero.

When it was first introduced, the black Adam character was a villain. An ancient Egyptian named Teth/Theo Adam (depending on the incarnation), was endowed with the power of the gods, just like Shazam. The black Adam had the powers of the Egyptian gods (Shu (stamina), Hershef (strength), Amun (strength), Zhuti (Thoth) (wisdom), Anbu (speed), and Mentho (courage)), but decided to become a villain. As a result, the sorcerer who granted him his powers banished him to the farthest star. 3,000 years later, he will face Shazam who has been the character’s main rival for some time.

In modern comics, through the writings of Jerry Ordway, Jeff Jones, and David S. Gower, the character turned anti-hero, is from the North African Kandak nation and is a staunch defender of his nation. His role of villainy is due to the murder of his wife and child, due to the invasion of his own people. That emotional complexity has been at the heart of the character ever since and bleeds a lot into the character that Dwayne Johnson will play.

Johnson has been playing heroes and comedic roles for some time, but North remembers his time as a hitch in wrestling and in Return of the mummy He plays the bad guy. Ever since he was announced as Teth Adam, I’ve been wondering how far they’d let his character be on the anti-hero side. Depending on how this movie works, there are plans to make it a competitor to Shazam, Superman, and possibly even Wonder Woman, producer Hiram Garcia explained.

“We always had a vision of where we saw where we wanted this to go,” Garcia said. collider. “We’ve never really considered this a one-off movie. I’m a huge comic book fan and fan, and I love this universe so much, if you can tell me how excited I am about talking about all this stuff. I’ve always approached this with a vision of, ‘This is the story that We want to tell it, that’s where we’d like to see this, that’s how we’d see multiple images displayed, possibly including sub-elements of individual characters, ‘but there was always a rough and loose outline in our heads on the imaginary whiteboard of how we wanted to do it. As we do that, we start to look at that a little bit more.But, again, in the end, we need the movie to be well received and we want fans to like it, but there’s a 100% view of what we’d like to do in the multi-picture aspect when it comes to By Black Adam and JSA.”

With this kind of long-term planning, it would be interesting if Adam’s manners were really gray. We’re lacking those kinds of characters right now in DCEU that aren’t on the R-rated movie track (Suicide squad, peacemaker, birds of prey, etc.), not to mention that DC is known for its iconic villains, and Johnson knows how to be bad with magic. I’m ready for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to be part of the darker moral scale on screen once again.
