At long last, the one movie actor who was destined to play a superhero posed in front of the green screen. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who first became famous while wearing spandex while wrestling in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) promotion, is back in spandex as Black Adam in the DC Extended Universe.
Black Adam is a 5,000-year-old former slave who aspires to fame and fortune. He is the legendary future monarch of the fictional Middle Eastern nation of Kahndaq, and his dramatic rebirth into the contemporary world comes at a time when ordinary Kahndaqians are pining for someone to free them from the tyranny of the neocolonial corporate-military complex.
Black Adam Gets Negative Reviews From Some
Johnson is a fantastic superhero because of his enormous stature, enormous brain, and deadpan sense of humor. Johnson has a roll of fat down the rear of his head when most guys his age have one across their stomachs. Johnson is well suited to actualize the superhero film’s promise as a surreal action comedy because he is droll, smart, and shaped like the classic outside brick-built convenience.
Although Viola Davis’s quick debut as Task Force X leader Amanda Waller delivers the terror, it is a pity that the other DC-ensemble heroes flooding into the action are not truly in his league. Adrianna (Sarah Shahi), an archeologist and rebel fighter from Khandaq, Qatar, finds the ancient crown composed of the potent material sternum, setting in motion a chain of events that frees Johnson’s mighty Adam. But the Justice Society of America steps in; they can not stand this new rogue fighter, so they have to either put him down or convince him to work with them.
