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?
Black Adam might return to cinema screens at some point in the future but given the recent shake-up at DC, we likely won’t see Black Adam 2 any time soon. If the character is given a new movie, it might even be with a different actor, as has happened with Superman, who will no longer be played by Henry Cavill.
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? We don’t know. As the next Black Adam could be a reboot for the character, the story might not follow on from that told in the first movie. As such, we don’t know what might be next for the comic book antihero but if you have any story ideas, please let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Who could be in Black Adam 2?
Dwayne Johnson could reprise his role, as could Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone. But if the next Black Adam is a reboot, expect to see a new cast of characters in the next movie.
When could Black Adam 2 be released?
It’s hard to say as changes are afoot within the DCEU. But if we do hear news of a sequel or a reboot, we will update this page when fresh information is released.
