In a recent video, the first Black Adam test audience raves about Dwayne Johnson’s DC Extended Universe film. The wait for Black Adam’s entrance on the big screen, which The Rock has endured for more than a decade, is almost over. Dwayne Johnson plays the titular anti-hero in the Jaume Collet-Serra-helmed film Black Adam, which also stars Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone. The Justice Society of America, which has these heroes as members, will be crucial to Black Adam’s tale when Johnson’s character is reawakened.
Although there has been a long wait to see Johnson’s Black Adam on the big screen, interest in seeing his interpretation of the DC villain has remained pretty high. The October theatrical release of Black Adam is finally approaching after many COVID-19-related delays. Black Adam was confirmed to be finished with a locked edit that had been seen to the cast at San Diego Comic-Con. This came after a series of retakes and test screenings to determine the level of crowd enjoyment and identify any potential enhancements for the future DCEU film. The procedure has now been given a behind-the-scenes glimpse by Johnson.
Johnson recently posted a new video showing the first test audience response to a Black Adam screening. The Rock snuck into the rear of the theatre and waited until it was time to get audience comments before bursting into the front row. The audience responses to Black Adam were overwhelmingly good, with praise for Johnson’s acting, his transition into Black Adam, and the surprising aspect of the story.
This test screening most likely took place a long time ago as Black Adam is finished and will be released in theatres in a little over a month. This video’s audience responses suggest that Johnson and the Black Adam crew won’t need to make much changes to the superhero movie for 2022. The video, of course, only displays a select number of comments and clearly avoids giving away any spoilers, so the full scope of the criticism is kept a secret.
