Black Adam early reviews are in, and it's a hit

Black Adam early reviews are in, and it's a hit

Early critics reviews are in for DC's upcoming film Black Adam, and it appears to have gone down very well.

There’s no need for competition, yet it’s hard not to compare the trajectories of both the MCU and DCEU. Marvel Studios is clearly on a well organised path, outlining their Phase Five and Six plans at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. DC, on the other hand, is treading a much more uncertain path.

Upcoming films The Flash and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom are plagued with casting controversy and DC’s long-term goal is much more nebulous. That being said, Black Adam has thus far been a shining light in the murky DC waters. The upcoming flick stars fan-favourite Dwayne Johnson and is set to mark the return of another beloved DC star. It’s a relief then that the early reviews are overwhelmingly positive.

Check out the trailer for Black Adam below.

Critic Brandon Davis tweeted, “Black Adam is built on some epic, non-stop action. It made me want a sequel with a smoother story immediately. When it moves, It’s a straight shot of adrenaline. The characters are dope, especially Teth-Adam and Doctor Fate. It’s a bad ass film.” Joseph Deckelmeier added, “Black Adam is a game-changer!! This is the DC Comics movie I’ve been waiting for and it did not disappoint. The Rock is electrifyingly brutal as Black Adam. This is what I wanted Black Adam to be. The action in the film is non-stop and seeing the JSA on the big screen was a thrill.” Take a look at some more reactions below.

Teth-Adam became Black Adam when he was bestowed with the power of the gods in ancient Kahndaq. After using these powers for vengeance, Black Adam was imprisoned for almost 5,000 years as punishment. As teased by the synopsis, “Now free, his unique form of justice, born out of rage, is challenged by modern day heroes.” Consider me intrigued, that’s for sure. Black Adam releases on 21 October.
