Saw Ivan Valentine from ComicBook.com Black Adam as the first step in writing the DC Extended Universe ship. In his 3.5 out of 5 review of the film, he wrote, “Is Black Adam The movie that will single-handedly bring the DC Cinematic Universe back to toe with what Marvel has built? No, but it certainly lays the groundwork for this to be a far-fetched possibility. Black Adam is a fun, frantic, and flawed film that answers the calls of many while also giving viewers an action-packed ride with loads of charisma from its main players. (I’d also be doing the movie a disservice if I didn’t mention the amazing “pop” I received during the post-credit scene, which might only rival Captain America’s capture of Thor’s hammer for the biggest reaction I’ve ever heard in a theater.) It’s a roller coaster ride, and if you go in with that mindset, you’ll be in for a good time. fun.”
