Will there be a Black Adam 2? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

Black Adam 2

Black Adam recently hit theatres and despite the low expectations of some, the movie has turned out to be something of a success. The movie ended its first week at the box office with domestic takings of $83.4 million and reviews have generally been quite positive.

If you have seen and enjoyed Black Adam, you will no doubt be hoping for a sequel.

But will there be a Black Adam 2? Or can the first movie be considered a one-hit wonder? Here’s what we know at the time of writing:

Be warned: this article will contain spoilers!


What is Black Adam about?

Based on the DC comic book character of the same name, Black Adam is a big-budget action film about a superhuman being who was imprisoned in an ancient tomb 5,000 years ago. Fast forward to the modern day and he is released from captivity when a resistance fighter named Adrianna Tomaz manages to release him during an expedition to locate the Crown of Sabbac.

After escaping from imprisonment, Black Adam is compelled to carry out his special brand of justice against anybody who gets in his way. But before he can be considered a supervillain, he is convinced to fight for the side of good when he meets Adrianna’s young son and the group calling themselves the Justice League.

Together with the League – Dr. Fate, Hawkman, Cyclone, and Atom Smasher – Black Adam must face off against a villain who wants to be reborn as the champion of the six demons of Sabbac and claim God-like powers. Does he succeed? Check out the movie if you would like to know more!


Will there be a Black Adam 2?

The first movie was 15 years in the making but we shouldn’t have to wait that long for the sequel. This is according to Harim Garcia, one of the Black Adam producers, who said in an interview with Comicbook.com:

“It’s not going to take that long. I can promise you that…We’ll get cooking on it fast, that’s for sure.”

As such, we fully expect Black Adam 2 to happen but as to when the movie might be released, we cannot say for sure at this stage.


What could Black Adam 2 be about?

At the end of the first movie, Black Adam remains in Kandahq to become its protector.

In the credit scene, he is told by Amanda Waller, founder of Task Force X, (you may remember her from the Suicide Squad movies) that he must never leave the city. He boasts that nobody can stop him from doing what he wants but then Superman arrives to tell him otherwise.

So, could the sequel see Black Adam leave the city and face the wrath of Waller? Could we see a Black Adam Vs Superman movie? We don’t know but in interviews, Harim Garcia has alluded to the possibility of a movie featuring both Black Adam and Superman, so it’s likely that this could one day happen, be they friends or foes. As Henry Cavill recently announced that he would be playing the Man of Steel again, it’s logical to suggest that he might return in the Black Adam sequel.

Other than Supes, the sequel would likely bring back the Justice League and perhaps even Shazam, as both characters gained their powers from the same circle of wizards. We might even see Black Adam make an appearance in the upcoming Shazam movie.

At this stage, all we can do is speculate about the sequel but if you have any story ideas, please let us know in the comments below.


Who will be in Black Adam 2?

Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam is a dead-cert for the next movie and if the Justice League return, we should also see Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone. But what about Pierce Brosnan’s Dr. Fate? He seemingly sacrificed himself at the end of the first movie but as his character is a bit of a trickster, there is a chance that he might not have died after all.


When could Black Adam 2 be released?

It’s hard to say for sure but if the movie is fast-tracked into production, there is a chance that the sequel could be released in 2024 at the earliest.

That’s all we know for now but we will update this page when fresh information is released.

  1. I’ve been waiting to see Black Adam and I really enjoyed it. I definitely think there should be a black adam 2. I will be looking forward to watching it. The cast did a great job.

  2. Black Adam is an excellent auctioneer and proves a very good vehicle for Dwayne’’s first role as a quite complex super-hero. His character development is such that by the end of the action the film audience will have taken him to their hearts. He is ably supported by a good supporting cast with Brosnan giving credibility where it is needed. Very good CGI and a stirring musical soundtrack add to the enjoyment.
