A glance into Black Adam
Black Adam is an enslaved man from an ancient civilization who awakens in the 21st century with super-heroic powers. The roots of his motivation are his family and his people, mostly his son. If anyone messes with anything he cares about, he is going to act swiftly and violently. He is the judge, jury, and executioner and he imparts the judgement as per his sense of justice.
The movie establishes Black Adam as a hesitant anti-hero rather than as a villain. Certainly, that was an interesting dilemma for heroes to deal with.
Henry Cavill returning as Superman in Black Adam’s post-credits scene was certainly the icing on the cake. Though The Rock said that the long-awaited Black Adam vs. Superman fight will still take some time, the audience across the globe is eager to see the duo's big showdown.
Black Adam marks the entry of ‘The Rock’ into the DC Universe which includes icons like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Black Adam’s true comics rival, Shazam. The idea of Black Adam facing all these superheroes in the DC Universe including Superman is undoubtedly thrilling. The audience will definitely want a character to cross paths with all these great heroes.
Why ‘Scorpion King’ stepped into Black Adam’s shoes
Dwayne rose to fame as a Hollywood actor with several remarkable movies. Among all those, his character as Scorpion King was most applauded by movie lovers. Though all other movies had high-octane actions, he got the opportunity to come on screen with superpowers in Black Adam.
In the movie, Black Adam wanted to kick the crap out of a lot of guys. Even, he loves to be a disruptive force. Dwayne loved the fact that Black Adam was a character that looked like him. He always wanted to play a character that has a similarity to him. So, he stepped into the shoes of Black Adam. Dwayne loves that Black Adam isn’t a character who can be guided or asked to do something, he’s not a guy one can make do things. His decisions are reserved to him only.

Garcia was quoted as saying, “Our vision is, what we really want to establish is Superman exists in the same world as Black Adam. Both those guys exist in the same universe and that's important for us. But we really wanted the world to know that these guys are going to cross paths and how we do it, we're still working on it.”
