‘Black Adam’s Post-Credits Scene Sets Up The Rock’s DC Future
Dwayne Johnson’s appearance as Black Adam will apparently be complemented by a recently added post-credits scene that will connect the character to the wider DC Universe. If we look at anything like the MCU, it’s very rare for a villain to show up with their own feature. While the DCEU claims to be modeling its own 10-year plan after what Marvel has been doing for the past decade and a half, there are a few deviations here and there.
After the recent merger between Warner Bros. and Discovery, the future of DC films is extremely uncertain. All we really know is that Warner Bros. changed its approach. Rather than anything they’ve done before, the plan for the future is to complete a massive shared universe, featuring many DC heroes, villains, and anti-heroes we’ve never seen on the big screen before.
Dwayne Johnson has long claimed that his appearance as Black Adam will completely shake up the order of the DCEU. One of the biggest parts of the movie is the introduction to the Justice Society of America. It’s a team consisting of Doctor Fate, Atom Smasher, Hawkman, and Cyclone. While we’ve got tons of new faces, it seems unlikely we’ll get many cameos from old DC movies.
Henry Cavill has repeatedly denied rumors that he will appear in black adam as Superman, but he could still be very good at keeping secrets. People have also speculated that we’ll see an appearance from Wonder Woman, which could be a likely pick. It’s not uncommon for DC to add characters at this point that we haven’t seen in a while. The news even fell fairly recently that Ben Affleck showed up on the set of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom for a few more shoots.
No specific details of the post-credits footage have emerged yet, as the scene was only seen during test screenings. All we really know is that if the movie is will present “something new to Johnson’s place in the DC Universe” could be quite significant.
black adam will debut in theaters across the country on October 21, 2022.
