Black Adam Movie Summary | Black Adam Showtimes
Black Adam is a 2022 American superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name. The film follows Teth-Adam (Dwayne Johnson), an ancient Egyptian warrior who is granted incredible powers by the wizard Shazam. However, after being corrupted by his own power and becoming a brutal dictator, Teth-Adam is sealed away by the Council of Wizards for thousands of years.
In the present day, Teth-Adam is released from his imprisonment and finds himself in a world that has changed significantly since his time. He discovers that his beloved homeland, Kahndaq, has been occupied by an oppressive regime and vows to free his people and restore the country to its former glory. To do this, he takes on the mantle of Black Adam and uses his immense power to battle against the oppressive forces.
Black Adam’s actions draw the attention of the Justice Society of America, a team of superheroes from the 1940s who have been brought to the present day by time-traveler, Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell). The JSA, consisting of Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), and Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan), confront Black Adam, but he insists that he is not their enemy and is only fighting for his people’s freedom.
As Black Adam and the JSA work together to defeat the regime, they also face threats from other sources. One such threat is the powerful villain, Sabbac, who is attempting to resurrect the Council of Wizards to regain control of the magical powers that Black Adam now wields.
