DC's new film Black Man premieres in New York on Tuesday, two weeks before its release.
The premiere of DC's new anti-hero Black Man is just two weeks away. The film premieres in the world on Tuesday (October 12) at AMC Empire in New York. Actors Dwayne Johnson ("Black Man"), Pierce Brosnan ("Doctor Fate"), Noah Centineo ("Atomic Switch"), Aldis Hodge ("Hawkman"), Quintessa Swindell ("Cyclone") and others were involved.
Here's a summary: In the ancient Kandak Tet, Adam was given great powers of the gods. After using this power for revenge, he became Black Man and was imprisoned. Nearly 5,000 years have passed and the Black Man has turned from a human into a myth and legend. Now on the loose, his unique form of justice, born of rage, challenges the modern heroes that make up the Justice Society: Hawkman, Doctor Doom, Atomic Buster and Cyclone.
" The whole purpose and initiative of Black Man is to build the DC Universe by introducing not just Black Man, but the entire JSA [Justice Society of America] – five, five superheroes, new superhero characters in one film," Johnson said. he told Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet.

Film critics lauded DC Films' new era, including Collider 's Stephen Weintraub, who praised Johnson for his commitment to the role.
I saw #BlackAdam. @TheRock is great as the Man in Black. He's been preparing for this role for 10 years and literally killed anyone and everyone in his path, and I'm glad he didn't let go of who The Man in Black is. He immediately left the theaters, wanting to see the sequel. pic.twitter.com/oLQc9lg7KR

Weintraub tweeted: "He has been preparing for this role for 10 years and has literally killed anyone and everyone in his path." “I love that he doesn't let go of who Black Man is. I immediately left the theaters, wanting to see the sequel."
Positive reviews continued to rise, with critic Scott Menzel saying the film was "everything I hoped for and more".
"Dwayne Johnson becomes Man in Black, a role he's been born into," Menzel wrote.
The black man was everything I hoped for and more. Snyder-style anti-hero spectacle with massive action and spectacular sets. Dwayne Johnson changed the role he played since birth to Man in Black. Centineo and Swindell are fun to watch. #BlackAdam pic.twitter.com/V1tY0liyph

I see #BlackAdam! It was one of my most anticipated films of the year and it did not disappoint. The action sequences are great, especially with JSA. The Rock destroys him as Black Man. The ending of the film gave me great hope for the future of the DCEU. pic.twitter.com/vd0Zy35lWT

#BlackAdam is the most dynamic DC film to date. It's a non-stop thrilling adventure that's all about spectacle, and the company knows it. Ter3 barely had time to breathe or even speak. @TheRock is the perfect black guy and Pierce Brosnan is amazing. This film will not leave fans indifferent! pic.twitter.com/HxCYYNw71w

#BlackAdam is built on non-stop epic action. This immediately made me want to continue with a more subtle story.
When moving, there is an immediate release of adrenaline. The characters are amazing, especially Tet-Man and Doctor Fate. This is a bad movie. pic.twitter.com/XeMFgcB3OG

.@TheRock is awesome in #BlackAdam, which includes many touchstones from the real world (painfully, it reinforces the need for heroes in dark times). Director Joam Collet-Serra laid the building blocks of a larger and grander universe. The action is lively and massive. pic.twitter.com/pDBkSHRDrI

Pierce Brosnan killed him like Doctor Fate. He stole the scene. As always charismatic.
Hawkman Aldis Hodge put a lot of flesh to the bone to dig deeper into future stories. The fight scenes are very good. #BlackAdam is everything, he has a bit of humor and is cool. pic.twitter.com/zYEdqIY7zO

#BlackAdam from DC ARRIVES! Lots of action, characters you develop right away, and addictive speed. Dwayne Johnson strikes the perfect balance between threatening and cold-blooded, yet vulnerable at the same time. I especially like Aldis Hodge's Hawkman and Pierce Brosnan's Doctor Fate. More JSA movies please! pic.twitter.com/YSCco9zYA3
