Where the name derives from:

When the power corrupted the then “Mighty Adam,” who used his abilities to kill the sitting Pharaoh and assume the throne, the Wizard dubbed him “Black Adam” and cast him out into space some 5000 light years from Earth.

The narrative:

Black Adam was Egypt’s greatest champion until he was corrupted by Blaze and hero in the early days of the DCU. The tale of Black Adam is almost biblical in scope as he rises a champion and falls a corrupted soul that murders the family of a boy destined to be a hero. The character is generally good, however, note he was created by Otto Binder and C. C. Beck and first appeared in Fawcett Comics as an enemy of the Marvel Family. An antihero from Kahndaq who was imprisoned for 5,000 years, he is at last freed and that is where we meet him in the upcoming film.

Cast and Crew Insight:

In addition to The Rock, “Black Adam” also stars Viola Davis and Sarah Shahi. The screenplay was written by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab, along with Director Jaume Collet-Serra. 

The Rock in this fitting role:

This will be The Rock’s first time in full DC Comics film. He was in a “Black Adam Precursor” teaser that was released in 2020 which was only a short prequel. The actor is admired for his tough persona, buff arms, and humor. The big release date is October 21.
