The new Black Adam poster marks the end for the time of heroes in the DCEU

Once again, Black Adam wants audiences to know that the hierarchy of power in the DC Extended Universe is changing.


We've known for a quite a while that the arrival of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as the anti-hero, Black Adam, in the DC Extended Universe will change the hierarchy of power. But, it appears that the WWE superstar really wants to drive that point home.

The new poster for Black Adam continues to prove that this is not your typical DCEU movie.

Once again, the incoming DCEU actor is in the spotlight for the latest Black Adam poster.

"The time of heroes is over," reads the poster's tagline, suggesting that the Justice Society will have its hands full trying to turn Black Adam into anything but an anti-hero. But, when you've spent a couple of hundred years locked and imprisoned after being touted as a righteous champion, you can't exactly blame Teth Adam for seeing things differently than most.

Here's the film's official synopsis:

Nearly 5,000 years have passed and Black Adam has gone from man, to myth, to legend. Now released, his unique form of justice, born out of rage, is challenged by modern day heroes who form the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dar. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone.

We're definitely curious to find out what's next for Black Adam.

Black Adam's arrival comes just as Warner Bros. Discovery is making significant changes to the DCEU as presently constructed. If Black Adam can become the first box office hit for the DCEU in what seems like forever, it could potentially launch a subset of other films starring the many interesting characters that we'll see in the film. The JSA isn't new to comic book fans, but those who have only followed the DCEU exclusively will find plenty of fresh faces.

Hopefully, Johnson can bring his penchant for winning audiences over to the DCEU with his appearance after a decades-long battle to get Black Adam made. It's worth noting that the films that Johnson has starred in or appeared in the past two years have been greenlit for a sequel, including Jungle Cruise, Free Guy, Red Notice, and DC League of Super-Pets.

Speaking of the DCEU, Black Adam will be the only film in the universe that will premiere in the next six months once it comes out on October 21. Warner Bros. Discovery pushed back the release dates of the Aquaman and Shazam! sequels to next year.
