“The hierarchy of power in the DC universe is about to change,” Dwayne Johnson proclaimed at the beginning of the hype cycle of black adam. And between the battles with the Justice Society of America and the secrets revealed about the DC hero’s own origins, he wasn’t entirely wrong. But as the film’s post-credits scene reveals, the hierarchy of power in the DC universe — held by Superman, Batman, The Flash, Aquaman and Wonder Woman — hasn’t completely changed yet, which is fine by Johnson. . He fought tooth and nail to make sure the modern DC universe got what it deserved before slamming it into a wall.

In black adamIn the credits scene, Viola Davis’s Amanda Waller appears to Black Adam in Kahndaq’s old throne room via drone-mounted hologram to tell him that she hopes he stays in Kahndaq, or else. Kahndaq’s hero replies that there is no one on Earth who can stand up to him, so why should we listen to him? Waller replies: She knows people who aren’t from Earth at all.
Cue the arrival of Superman, played by Henry Cavill himself, in the big blue suit for the first time since 2017. League of Justice (unless you count new footage shot for 2021) Zack Snyder’s Justice League). In a friendly tone, he tells Black Adam that it’s been a while since anyone has made the world as nervous as he is, ending the entire scene simply and openly, “We should talk.”
While the scene should make fans dizzy about the chances of Cavill returning to the role, and recent news suggests a man of steel 2 could finally be in the works: The Big Blue Boy Scout revival was not a mandate for Johnson and his black adam Creative team. This was a fan getting his wish.
“For a long time it bothered me that millions of people were talking and wondering and asking questions, and no one was answering the questions,” Johnson says of Superman’s inactivity. “Even if you had answers that people might not like, the thing that always bothered me was… Well then, speak up! Somebody talk and talk to the fans, talk to the people, tell them what the plans are. and not only that […] but what bothered us was that you have a guy who is a great Superman and a beloved Superman, a guy who loves the mythology and knows the character as deeply as Henry knows Superman, and on top of that, the most important thing is the fans. love him like superman… he’s been on the sidelines for five years, and no one talks about it!
Johnson has spent nearly 20 years trying to get the Black Adam movie off the ground, but when the current iteration of the project took shape five years ago, its star was adamant that the action tie into the larger DC universe, even as Warner Bros. Pictures. he was beginning to shy away from the notion of the extended “Snyderverse” established by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder.
That led to some conflict. Not only did Johnson want to introduce Black Adam and the Justice Society of America in a bulky debut, he pushed for Cavill to be Superman again. According to a recent report, that meant bypassing DC Films head Walter Hamada, who rejected the idea, and campaigning directly with WB heads Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, who liked him.
“Besides everything [the new introductions], we said: ‘We are going to find the most powerful and unstoppable force in the entire universe that has been on the sidelines for five years.’ Let’s go and fight hard to reintroduce it back into the DC universe through black adam.’ And that fight? We fought. We fought for a long time on our side in Seven Bucks; We weren’t going to take no for an answer.”
And they didn’t: Ultimately, Warner Bros. cleared Cavill to appear in the film, and the scene was reportedly shot last September.
Is the post-credits scene a preface to a real change in the hierarchy of power in the DC universe? That may depend on how well black adam does at the box office in its opening weekend, and how Warner Bros. looks in the coming months. Hamada will soon be stepping down from his position at DC, and rumors suggest that De Luca will play a larger role in the development and expansion of the comics universe. Cavill could be back in a man of steel 2, even as Ta-Nehisi Coates and JJ Abrams are working on a different Superman project envisioned with a black actor at the helm. There’s also The flash‘s multiversal fragmentation and plans in motion for a direct sequel. that’s on top aquaman 2which will come out in 2023, and the one in development wonder woman 3. There is also batman 2 Y Joker: Folie a Deuxwhich prove that the universe is big enough to duplicate heroes.
black adam it ends with the return of Superman and the words “let’s talk”. And it’s all just talk until someone asks Cavill to actually redress for the scenes that play out. prior to the credits roll.
