“Black Adam” Post-Credits Scene, Spoiler Talk and More Easter Eggs

Dwayne Johnson has been saying for a long time that his movie “Black Adam” will change “the order of power in the DC Universe.” Now that it’s been out in theatres for a while… Will it make any difference?

The scene after the credits sure hopes so. Fans had long been clamoring for Johnson’s super-strong villain to face off against another all-powerful DC hero: Henry Cavill’s Superman. Johnson himself had even been teasing the showdown at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and on the “Black Adam” world premiere red carpet. Johnson and the rest of the “Black Adam” team heard what the fans wanted, which made them very happy.

Cavill’s Superman does show up in the scene after the credits, and it looks like he and Black Adam are at odds with each other. But first, the scene starts with Amanda Waller, played by Viola Davis, sending a drone to talk to Black Adam. Waller has been in charge of Suicide Squad in not one, but two movies.

After Black Adam got out of Waller’s underwater prison, which was run by Emilia Harcourt from “Peacemaker” (Jennifer Holland in a fun cameo), Waller isn’t too happy with him.

Waller tells Black Adam that he has her attention and that she will let him go free as long as he doesn’t leave his home country, Kahndaq. Black Adam laughs and says, “There’s no one on this planet who can stop me.”

Waller tells him that there is someone from another world who can help her. Superman, the last son of Krypton, does indeed come crashing down from the sky in a cloud of dust. “We should talk,” says the Man of Steel as he comes out of the smoke. And then the movie cuts to black.

Does this mean that Black Adam and Superman will fight in the next movie? It’s not clear, like most things in the DC Universe right now. Even though many of DC’s upcoming movies, like “Shazam: Fury of the Gods,” “The Flash,” and “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” are set in the same cinematic universe, they are mostly unrelated, and it seems unlikely that Cavill or Johnson will show up in any of them.

There have been rumors that Cavill will be in a second Superman movie, but nothing has been announced, let alone given the go-ahead. “Black Adam” producer Hiram Garcia has said that a Superman battle wouldn’t just be a one-off movie, however. “It’s never been about a one-off or just about a fight,” he recently told CinemaBlend.

“No, it’s about so much more than that. We really want to craft a long form of storytelling and show that these two characters exist in the same universe and are going to have to deal with each other often, either on the same or opposite sides. Hopefully they’re going to clash at some point, but it’s not just about a ‘one fight’ situation. That was never our dream. That does not reward the fans. Fans want to feel a journey between these guys knowing that these guys exist in the same universe.”

“Black Adam” has a few more Easter eggs that have nothing to do with Superman. Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), and Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell) make their big-screen debuts, and there are some references to comic books.

Atom Smasher says that his suit lets him change the way his atoms are put together and grow to a very large size. As we meet him, his uncle Al Pratt, who was the older hero Atom in the DC Comics and gave him his suit, calls him on FaceTime. Henry Winkler, who is best known as the Fonz, plays Pratt in a funny cameo.

Hawkman is the leader of the Justice Society, and his costume looks just like it does in the comics. It has wings and a hawk’s head. He says that his spaceship is made of Nth metal, a valuable alloy from the planet Thanagar that is also used to make his mace.

In the comics, Cyclone is the granddaughter of Abigail Mathilda “Ma” Hunkel, who went by the name Red Tornado when she was the first superhero. Cyclone was taken from her home as a child by the mad scientist T.O. Morrow, who also made an android named Red Tornado. He injected her with nanobytes, which give her elemental powers. In “Black Adam,” Cyclone briefly tells Atom Smasher about her past, especially the nanobytes. He is shocked by her story.

Even though he dies, Doctor Fate fights evil Ishmael, played by Marwan Kenzari, who turns into the demon Sabbac. Doctor Fate’s voice sounds deep and otherworldly when he puts on his gold helmet and uses his magical powers.

That could be because his magical powers come from an ancient cosmic being named Nabu, who gives them to whoever wears the Doctor Fate helmet. Brosnan’s Doctor Fate is dead, but someone else, like the DC character Khalid Nassour, could take over the role in a second.
