Black Adam, the “dark” version of DC Comics seduces the public
In the space of a few days, the DC Comics film franchise has been shaken by a double earthquake.. The first was caused by the very sculpted Dwayne Johnson who turned the entire box office upside down, while raining millions of dollars in revenue, with his interpretation of the anti-hero Black Adam. The second is the announcement by the Warner Bros group concerning the management of the cinematographic universe: after more than nine years of existence, the “DC Universe” has finally found its Kevin Feige (the boss of Marvel Cinematic Universe) in the persons of James Gunn and Peter Safran, both co-responsible. While waiting to find out what they are doing with Marvel’s rival, the character of Black Adam is on all fronts to serve as a standard: just today, the anti-hero formalized his imminent arrival in the roaster of the Super Smash Bros-like, MultiVersus.
In short, Black Adam — and Dwayne Johnson, even more! – is everywhere ! Accustomed to doing the show during each of his promotional campaigns, the actor has never ceased to respond to interviews to better disseminate small information, here and there, on the sidelines of his official release and discuss related topics such as the Justice Society of Americaor the Avengers with DC Comics sauce. Now that the film is out, the actor can take the time to thank his community and the fans – if not the critics – who were largely won over by the feature film!

Much more than embodying Black Adam, it was to offer a turning point to the DC Comics universe, as the actor said. And, for now, the turn seems to have been very well negotiated since the feature film made it possible to raise more than 250 million dollars in revenue and placed at the top of the box office for the second consecutive week, all over the world ! A feat – as the character and the Justice Society were little known – which was well worth thanking the fans, those without whom none of this would have been possible.
Thank you everyone! 🙏🏾🥂#BlackAdam #1 movie in the world for the second weekend in a row.
Strong numbers considering Teth Adam was a little known DC character (to the masses) as well as Justice Society. All 5 superheroes never existed on the big screen until now. #NewEra https://t.co/2Quty78rRZ

In addition to addressing a few words of thanks, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson lingered on how the superhero builds his vision of justice. Because, as he says himself, “superheroes are not supposed to kill people, but he (Black Adam) is”. By tackling a darker aspect of DC Comics, The Rock explains that they wanted to question the very nature of the “super” and the “anti” hero. Later in the interview, the former wrestler praised the incredible work of the teams, in particular on the way in which the film highlights the powers of Black Adam and makes us wonder about the outcome of a confrontation between him and Superman, if ever he was to happen. An answer in a few years?
