“Black Adam” was many things, but the $393 million film starring Dwayne Johnson did one thing so perfectly that even James Gunn’s DCU may never reach that standard

Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam eventually became the laughing stock of the DC Extended Universe after it failed both critically and commercially at the box office in 2022. Despite the numerous criticisms, there is one thing that fans give it credit for – the costumes.

James Gunn's upcoming Superman The film is currently under a lot of criticism after behind-the-scenes photos leaked online showing nondescript costumes for Hawkgirl and Green Lantern. Will the highly anticipated project disappoint fans when it comes to costumes?

Fans think Black AdamThe costumes are far superior to the suits of DCU

A Twitter fan shared a series of photos of Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam shows the different fantastic outfits of the characters.

The actor had previously praised his team of costume designers in a post after they worked hard to bring the most authentic and impressive character outfits to life.”Authenticity and accuracy of the costumes were very important to us”, said The Rock, adding: “Our best costume designers (Kurt, Bart and team) took great pride in taking this to the next level..”

The viral fan post was a reaction to the leaked images of Isabela Merced's Hawkgirl and Nathan Fillion's Green Lantern. Fans didn't like the costumes as they looked too generic and low-quality. Netizens couldn't help but compare them to those of DCEU. Here's what people think of this comparison:

It is not known if these suits were just prototypes, but James Gunn and his team could definitely improve the superhero suits. Black Adam Although the film failed to bring the plot to life, no expense was spared on the costumes.

It also helped that the outfits in Black Adam doesn't even need CGI to look amazing. It's just sad that the film had so much potential and collective hatred completely dragged it to the depths of unredeemable.

will Black Adam Join the DCU?

After James Gunn and Peter Safran took over the DC Universe, things changed at headquarters and a new slate of projects called Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters was announced. Unfortunately Black Adam was nowhere to be found on the list.

Nevertheless, The Rock assured fans that he and Gunn have discussed a possible collaboration, even if Teth-Adam does not get a solo film in the DCU:

However, DC and Seven Bucks have agreed to continue exploring the most valuable ways to use Black Adam in future chapters of the DC Multiverse.

The future of Black Adam remains vague at this point, and it seems that Johnson is busy with his other projects at the moment. With the numbers it grossed during its theatrical run, Black Adam Maybe it's not the best idea to fly alone again.

Black Adam can be viewed on Netflix.
