Warner Bros. and DC have not officially announced that they would be producing Black Adam 2, but Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has ambitious ambitions.
In case the closing credits didn’t hint at it, Johnson has been touting Black Adam as the beginning of a “new era in the DC Universe,” which will undoubtedly involve the return of Black Adam unless the film tanked at the box office.
“For a long time, I have wanted to speak directly to the fans I have been hearing from. It’s been bothering me for a while that no one seems willing to directly approach the audience and say, “Hey, we hear you,” and “as he revealed to CinemaBlend.
“This is where we’ve arrived at after many months—no, years—of effort. This new epoch, this new moment, is the focal point of the entire project. Proceed with expansion now.”
Even though Black Adam functions well as a stand-alone origin narrative for its protagonist and the Justice Society, it does provide some hints as to where the new era of the DC Universe, including that massive DC comeback, is headed.
So, until we hear otherwise, here is everything you need to know about Black Adam 2 in the meanwhile. (There are big Black Adam spoilers ahead, so beware.)
Black Adam 2 Release Date
Since Warner Bros. and DC have not officially announced Black Adam 2, there is currently no set release date.
There are currently four movies scheduled for release in 2023, so it’s unlikely that we’d have seen it even if it had been confirmed. March 17th for “Furious Gods,” June 23rd for “The Flash,” August 18th for “Blue Beetle,” and March 17th for “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” (December 25).
If the sequel is indeed happening, we won’t see it until at least 2024, and most likely 2025, unless production begins next year. Keep an eye here, and we’ll post an update as soon as we have more information.
Black Adam 2 Cast
Even though Dwayne Johnson will undoubtedly reprise his role as Black Adam, no other cast members have been confirmed because production on Black Adam 2 has not yet begun.
Not everyone from the original film will be back for the sequel, and Johnson is the only one who has been confirmed so far (Hawkeye (Aldis Hodge), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), and Cyclops (Quintessa Swindell).
Since Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate sacrificed himself to prevent Hawkman’s death, the Justice Society will be one man short if they return.
Sarah Shahi, who played Adrianna (who later became Isis in the comics) and whose son Amon was played by Bodhi Sabongui, should return now that Black Adam is Kahndaq’s protector.
It’s likely that other DC crossover characters, like as Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) and Emilia Harcourt (Jennifer Holland), may make appearances as well.
Black Adam 2 Plot
There has been no official word on a sequel to the 2012 action film Black Adam, so we can only speculate as to what it would be about. However, we can safely assume that the story will incorporate Henry Cavill’s Superman in some way.
There was a tense buildup in the Black Adam ending, with the title character and Superman staring each other down before the credits rolled. Dwayne Johnson has strongly intimated that fans will be heeded to in their desire to see these two super-powerful beings square off.
We also leave Adam at a fork in the road at the end of the first film. Having spent time with the Justice Society and people like Adrianna and Amon, he seems to have adopted a more realistic outlook on dealing with villains. Would Black Adam become more of a heroic figure in future episodes?
Okay, maybe not quite. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson likes to think of himself as the baddest anti-hero around, so it’s unlikely that Black Adam will completely abandon his ultraviolent beginnings any time soon.
Black Adam 2 Trailer
Dwayne Johnson, who plays the title character in DC Universe’s Black Adam, has released a new trailer dubbed “Legacy” to build up anticipation for the film’s upcoming theatrical debut.
There’s a lot riding on this film because it’s been touted as the initiative that would restore the live-action DC Universe to its former glory. The initial spot, however, included Steppenwolf from the 2017 version of Justice League, which has since been replaced by the newly released trailer. There was a lot of fan response to the controversial sequence because many people found it distracting or offensive in the theatrical release. Black Adam re-released an improved trailer after hearing feedback from the public, with Johnson addressing the modifications on Twitter.
Johnson recently discussed his participation in an interview with ComicBook, saying, “I am 100% dedicated to not only Black Adam but then growing the Black Adam universe, the DC universe.” From the get-go, I am an eternal optimist. Therefore, I and everyone else up here believe that the entire universe is only an illusion. I, along with the rest of the team, will put in a tonne of effort to make sure the mythology is respected while also satisfying the readers. We all hear the fans, but I can understand every word they utter.
