On October 21, 2022, “Black Adam” was finally released in theatres, having been stuck in the “development limbo” phase for over a decade and a half. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the actor who was cast in the part when it was first announced in 2007, is the one who has finally appeared in a movie while dressed as the villain in his signature black and gold outfit. Despite the fact that the movie hasn’t been a huge success with reviewers, it’s been all everyone can talk about on the internet in the weeks leading up to its long-awaited release because of an appearance that no one saw coming from one of the most well-known characters in the DC universe.
In addition to the already extensive cast of DC Comics characters that are featured in “Black Adam,” such as Teth-Adam himself, Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan), Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), and the rest of the Justice Society of America, Superman makes a cameo appearance in the film’s epilogue as a fitting way to bring things to a dramatic close. Henry Cavill, a fan favourite, made a brief appearance again, which, assuming you haven’t been paying attention to the “Black Adam” news cycle, probably didn’t come as much as a surprise to you as it could have. Although this is true, it does not negate the fact that the return of the “Man of Steel” caught some viewers by surprise.
Surprisingly, Sarah Shahi, who plays the role of Kahndaqi freedom warrior Adrianna Tomaz, didn’t even realise that Henry Cavill’s Superman featured in “Black Adam” until she attended the New York premiere of the film.

First of all, Viola Davis makes a cameo appearance as the no-nonsense federal agent Amanda Waller, which is a cameo that has Shahi quite happy. She reminisced about it to THR, “Before I saw the screening, I was completely unaware that Viola Davis had a role in the film.
I just looked at him and said, “Holy s***. I’m acting alongside Viola Davis in a movie.'” In addition, she was taken aback by the appearance of Jennifer Holland, who reprised the part of Emilia Harcourt that she had played in 2021’s “The Suicide Squad” and in the critically acclaimed series “Peacemaker” on HBO Max.
