There are only a few weeks left until the release of Black Adama film that not only marks the return of a DC Extended Universe film to theaters more than a year after The Suicide Squadbut also the first cinecomic with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hero. During an interview, the director talked about the Justice Society.
Released after 5,000 years, Black Adam will have to contend with another super-team that believes in the fight for truth and justice, the Justice Society.
“We have Doctor Fate, Hawkman, Cyclone, and Atom Smasher. Hawkman and Doctor Fate are the oldest members of the team“said director Jaume Collet-Serra in an interview with DC Nation included in the pages of the Black Adam comic – The Justice Society Files.”Doctor Fate is almost divine, so the presence of Pierce Brosnan, who is so warm and sensitive, made the combination perfect“.
The team is led by Carter Hall, aka Hawkman, who “he has a very strict sense of morality and justice“, explained Collet-Serra.”He is a bit of a scientist and a bit of a gladiator. Atom Smasher is a bit like the newcomer to the neighborhood. He’s a very charming character, but he’s not sure he’s on the right side either. Finally, we have Cyclone, who comes from a lineage of heroes and has been impregnated with nanotechnology“.
With the Justice Society and ARGUS director Amanda Waller (Viola Davis of Suicide Squad) of Task Force X in the mix, Black Adam “it speaks thematically about what makes a hero and who has the right to define what justice is“.
“Black Adam was born 5,000 years ago when things were very different, and he does things his way for what he deems right“, said the director of the protagonist, who is endowed with omnipotent powers similar to those of the gods. On Teth Adam – reborn as Black Adam – he exercises his powers in revenge, Collet-Serra said:”I wouldn’t say Black Adam’s moral code is questionable. I would say it is not contemporary“.
As we drop you off on the latest Black Adam trailer, analysts are confident Black Adam will be The Rock’s biggest box-office debut.
Black Adam will be released in theaters on October 21, 2022.
