Earlier this year, nothing got superhero movie fans more excited than watching Black Adam. This was only because of one person, Dwayne Johnson. The former WWE Champion put all his effort and time into making this movie the best movie for DC fans.
Not only did he bring Black Adam to live action perfectly, but he also made other aspects of the movie similar to the comic book version.
While it passed its predecessor, SHAZAM! in box office numbers, it couldn’t surpass other DC movie giants like Aquaman and Wonder Woman. But its worst defeat came at the hands of the Marvel movie that came out just a month after Black Adam.
It surpassed Johnson’s movie by a huge mile, by 20X to be exact, but that was expected given the popularity of Marvel in the mainstream. But despite this colossal defeat, Johnson is pitching a potential challenge to a former movie series that he used to be a part of.
