Black Adam flies into cinemas on Friday the 21st October and here at DC World we got the chance to go see an early screening thanks to Warner Bros UK. I have to say it was a joy to be part of this amazing experience with fellow friends who have other sites like ours and is always a good time together.
Here we go, Black Adam in my opinion was one of the biggest superhero introductions to cinema, Dwayne Johnson who plays Black Adam was born for this part, his physical strength and body condition absolutely fill his new super costume and he is one powerful character and will be a match for many heroes to come, an unstoppable force to join the DC Universe and let me tell you, things are definitely about to change in the future of DC movies. You can see, hear and feel his power and appreciate how much damage he can really cause let alone stir up some problems.
The talented cast who join Dwayne Johnson are brilliant and each one brings their own tributes to the characters they play, Pierce Brosnan plays Doctor Fate and pulls the character off amazingly well and has my vote, he is powerful, full of knowledge and is one of the main members of the Justice Society of America who are called upon to go try stop Black Adam. Seeing his character on the big screen gave me chills as he has needed a movie intro for ages and now we got to see him.
Quintessa Swindell plays Cyclone and Noah Centineo plays Atom Smasher and Aldis Hodge is Hawkman, these are the rest of the JSA team members and lead by Hawkman, they are all sent on the mission to try and stop Black Adam wreaking havoc in Kahndaq, a city where he has been unleashed once more. These characters all have their own unique super powers and all have their part to play in the movie. Throughout the movie they are all needed to help each other and there are some fun moments too, this was good to have some humour in the film and helped keep it a bit more less serious.
The movie does also have a side sub plot to another villain to which you will see but this does not take up the rest of the film and only builds up to the ending section and is a part of the story of Black Adam.
The entire movie has massive visual effects and action and the 2 hour time limit will fly past, the iconic music and score by Lorne Balfe is absolutely mesmerising and fits Black Adam spot on, I can’t help but keep hearing his theme and know immediately this is now Black Adams theme, its as iconic as others we know, when you hear it next you will say Black Adam!
I recommend you see this on the largest screen possible and make sure you stay and watch the end credits extra scene, this is so important and one you will want to experience in a theatre with many others, and I can tell you this moment has taken a lot of years to pull off and make me for one very excited to see the future of DC movies looking powerful again and I look forward to continuing our adventures together.
Dwayne Johnson Thank you for making the future of the DC Comics movies bright again.

In ancient Kahndaq, Teth Adam was bestowed the almighty powers of the gods. After using these powers for vengeance, he was imprisoned, becoming Black Adam. Nearly 5,000 years have passed, and Black Adam has gone from man to myth to legend. Now free, his unique form of justice, born out of rage, is challenged by modern-day heroes who form the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone.
