According to a recent report, the movie Black Adam features an additional scene after the credits roll.
The Hollywood Reporter cites anonymous sources who claim that a recent test showing of the superhero flick starring Dwayne Johnson featured an alternate post-credits scene. Although the specifics of the film were not discussed, the report does assert that the sequence contributes “a fresh element to Johnson’s role” in the DC Extended Universe. Despite this, the report did not provide the details regarding the footage.
Many fans are under the impression that the new post-credits sequence is connected to the recent merger between Warner Bros. and Discovery, which has led to the postponement of a number of high-profile films that were set in the DCEU. Although it would appear like Black Adam has been spared from the company’s chopping block, CEO David Zaslav has claimed that there are plans in place to improve Johnson’s blockbuster as well as numerous other projects that are scheduled to be released in the near future. Zaslav stated that the group had watched “The Flash,” “Black Adam,” and “Shazam 2.” “They fill us with a great deal of anticipation. We’ve seen them. We believe that they are wonderful, and we also believe that we can make them even more wonderful.”
If the new post-credits sequence does indeed further clarify Johnson’s place in the larger DCEU, then it would lend credence to the assertions that were made by the producers of Black Adam, Hiram Garcia and Beau Flynn. Both of the directors mentioned that the movie will significantly expand upon the cinematic universe that Warner Bros. has already developed in a number of different ways. “The fact that we are going to use Black Adam to broaden the scope of the DC Universe is quite exciting. I believe that by using him as our starting point, we now have the opportunity to include the JSA and who knows what other characters will show up “According to Garcia.
Johnson has also suggested that Black Adam will be the beginning of something far bigger for the DCEU, and this is consistent with his statements. Johnson stated that “[The San Diego Comic-Con 2022 trailer] is also a reflection of our director’s vision, who wanted to create something that was different; who wanted to create a movie that was disruptive.” “[The San Diego Comic-Con 2022 trailer] is also a reflection of our director’s vision,” Johnson added. “But in addition to that, he desired to make a film that would kick off the swing of the pendulum in the DC Universe.”
While Black Adam will bring the Justice Society of America into the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), many fans feel that an older member of the universe, played by Henry Cavill’s Superman, will make his triumphant return to the big screen in the near future. Some members of the crowd were dissatisfied when the actor did not make an appearance at SDCC 2022, despite the fact that they had anticipated seeing him there. In spite of this, Johnson fueled the fires of speculation by suggesting that Teth Adam and Clark Kent would engage in some type of battle. “I will say, as you guys are aware, we are all immersed in this mythology, and it’s been the age-old debate of who would win in a fight between Black Adam and Superman,” the speaker said. “I will say that I believe Black Adam would prevail.” Johnson stated. “They’re quite comparable when weighed against one another. My guess is that everything hinges on the actor performing the role of Superman. Let me simply put it that way. I’m going to leave it at that for now.”
