Black Adam is the twelfth movie of the DC Extended Universe. It’s the first one to feature Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam – a character who’s a corrupted antihero trying to clear his name and reputation. Black Adam first appeared in DC comics in 1945, and this is his first big screen portrayal.

In the film, Dwayne Johnson’s character goes up against the Justice Society of America – a group of heroes portrayed by Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, and Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate. So far, the movie has been a huge hit with fans, and that showed at the box office.
