C.D. is here, and he reckons that it turns out that new DC superhero film Black Adam was really very good… in a way. Who would’ve guessed?
Could Black Adam finally be the turning point for both the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), which has been trying to find a way forward for a long while?
DC Comics’ Black Adam is the eleventh instalment in the DCEU and is a spin-off of New Line Cinema and DC Films’ Shazam! (from 2019).
The film stars Dwayne Johnson (who also served as a producer) as the title character, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, Bodhi Sabongui, and Pierce Brosnan, and was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a script by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab Noshirvani.
