Black Adam Set up a Superman Feud in the Most Unique Way
Black Adam sets up an enmity between its antihero and Superman, with one Easter Egg suggesting a tragic end for Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel.
If there’s one element of Black Adam that fans are still talking about, it’s the return of Henry Cavill’s Superman. This hierarchy-changing post-credits scene reasserts the hero’s place in the DC Universe, all while setting up a future conflict. In fact, the hype for Superman vs. Black Adam is far stronger than the latter actually fighting Shazam.
Ironically, this fight is foreshadowed long before Black Adam’s after-credits scene when Teth-Adam fights Hawkman. The fate it hints at could retcon a previous DCU film while also making Black Adam a threat strong enough to kill a Man of Steel. Here’s how Black Adam is set up as the ultimate “doomsday” for Superman.
