BLACK ADAM BREAKDOWN! Easter Eggs & Details You Missed!
Welcome back to New Rock Stars. I'm Eric Boston. This is a
Adam where Dwayne The Rock Johnson aims to give the rest of the DC Universe a rock bottom from the rock of Eternity to the rock of finality. Really putting the Rock on high. Rocky force that one hey let's break this movie down scene by scene for
eggs and cool
details you might have
missed and thanks to boxu for sponsoring this video more about their tasty offerings later we open at 2600 a.c. before Babylon and before the pyramids were built there was conduct now the pyramids of Giza were built between 2589 B.C.
C. and 2504 a. so 2600 conduct just made the cut conduct is a fictional country on Earth in the DC Universe located near Egypt introduced in 2006 in Jeff John's 52 series, the architecture of this Sharuta city is It looks like the 2006 design with the Central Palace and two kneeling statues touching their fists. The original flag of conduct had three triangles which in the comics represent the pyramid tombs of TEF
Adam's wife and children, but here they must have some meaning that predates
Adam and the conduct people continue to embody this by bonding with each other with the shape of the triangle in his hands and these three triangles are the same shape as Adriana's eternium necklace and we made the akhtan king played by Marwan kanzari who also plays his descendant Ishmael in present day he already bears the chess scar Sabaka's inverted pentagram, as its root mentions his darker ambitions, the camera reverses showing him upside down hinting at his desire to enter the Reflected Rock of Underworld finality Sabaka's crown is infused with the powers of the six Fiends of the world ancient the Wizards counterparts of Shazam and the rock of Eternity these slaves mine eternium the conduct mineral resource that was introduced or in the comics like the shards of matter thrown out by the rock of Eternity when it was destroyed by Dr. savan he is a naturally occurring mineral, something closer to vibranium and i promise i won't spend all this analysis comparing this to
Black Panther but you have to admit there are some obvious parallels here.
Root's father tells him to let someone else be the hero that we aren't. look at his face but yeah it's obviously Dwayne Johnson but it looks like here his face is mapped onto a stand-in body one with a little less muscle or maybe it's just the rock kind of sucking from everywhere his bravado transports him to the rockaby eternity chiman hansu returns as a wizard from the 2019 shazam movie he and the others. They empower heroot with the stamina of Shu, the gentleness of heru, the strength of I'm in the wisdom of zahuti, the power of aten and the courage of mehen, these lyrics come together as Michelle's Shazam sorry, currently playing the Smashing Pumpkins Bullet with butterfly wings when we find out that kandak is being looted by intergang now DC Comics intergang is an international crime syndicate one of the two major gang metropolises and his gang follows the religion of crime created by Darkseid to spread the bad on Earth so their tech is alien but here its powered by eternium there is actually an earlier nod to getting the gang into the dceu in Peacemaker episode 4 in that newspaper under the Gorilla Grodd headline which spills on Ramon's backpack are real DC Comics which is DC revival Wonder Woman number one variant cover of 2016 Batman Odyssey number one of 2010 NTC revival cyborg number four from 2016. and like seconds after this we see there's also an issue of The Flash like Freddie Freeman in 2019 Shazam I'm on is a Justice League fan and collects these comics and in-universe posters that they mythologize their heroics and those are the exact same comics. and billboards from our world, doesn't make much sense, but whatever, Adriana and the others drive to this range far above the Ender gang's mines and refineries parallel to Ra Lost Ark readers remember how Indy knew that the Nazis were digging in the wrong place.
They are taking you to the wrong place. the tomb inside and on the floating floor of sabakh is this cave that opens up, it looks like lightning, but it's a little jagged and sloppy, like the
black sigil on
Adam's chest is lightning, but it's like super warm, as you know Like an acid wash, whatever looks cool, the inside gang snatches the crown, but Adriana reads Shazam from the runes to wake
Adam grabs the boss for Nick, fries his body with lightning, and only at the end breaks his neck. like what
Adam later advises Amon to make beg for mercy but denies it to his last breath as this darkness shoots over
Adam he ascends it's lightning that shines lower and lower in his chest to show how he's gaining power here
adam swi kill them all quickly.
I want what one quicksilver throws at another with that amputated arm of Tossberg still in hand. He saves Adriana from falling Rebelde and then outside pushes a helicopter against each other and we listen to the Rolling Stones paint it
black as we do. Watch him move time dilated through the soldiers in a super speed setup to place all these little hazards on these trajectories. not allowed to get mad at me for comparing them Adriana and Kareem roll up the windows of the van that looks as useless as the kids in Jurassic Park closing the car door to hide from the T-Rex that I only bring up because the way this movie depicts
Adam it's very similar to the way Kaiju are depicted in the movies, specifically Warner's monster verse over the past decade. aotic neutral and chaotic good sometimes awaken from the ancient world rampage by imperialist forces forge these bonds with children and other lowly humans to become these gentle giant protectors while giving humans a chance to rise up as heroes in their own right, I really don't think
Adam would take it as an insult to be compared to Godzilla or King Kong and it really drives how they set up Godzilla vs Kong seems to be the same kind of goal that The Rock wants
Adam vs Superman and that won't necessarily be a battle of good versus evil, but more of a WWE style showdown where the fight is really the show.
Carter Hall, aka Hawkman, sees the footage of this battle and talks to Amanda Waller and they team up. from the Justice Society of America beginning with Maxine hunko AKA Cyclone her screen on the door lists her aliases Red Tornado born March 1, 1997 5.0 GBA 1600 SAT score Favorite Author L frank Baum not to the tornado is from the wonderful Wizard of Oz she wears striped tights like the Wicked Witch of the East and rides on her bike with a case on the back you know like Miss Gulch with a basket on the back of her bike where she kept Toto like she's just really hugging him, on reality later mentions that a mad scientist experimented on her referring to Dr.
TO Moro from DC Comics next we made
Adam Smasher Al rostain nephew of the original
Adam Smasher played by Henry Winkler as he is in the comics in Smasher is a character from Legacy and then Kent Nelson aka Dr. Fate a sorcerer who wears the helmet a fate called Naboo now Nabu was the cosmic Lord of order who came to Earth ago e billions of years to fight the Chaos Lords, so Dr. Fate touches this helmet. and sees the vision of Doom and Hawkman impaled to death, this is the Fate he hopes to evade But ultimately, if you think about it, this happens anyway Hawkman just uses Nelson's sorcery to cast a duplicate projection of himself So Therefore, it could be argued that Dr.
Pate was seeing the true final destination. At this point, Carter tells Maxine that his ship is made entirely of enth metal down to the bolts, so enth metal is an alien mineral from the planet thanaguard with definite gravity. properties that make up the parts of his ship and his winged armor and all of his weapons included in his mace respond to his mental waves
Adam wakes up in emon's room covered in DC memorabilia of course
Adam accidentally burns a hole in his face from the Superman poster with a sticker in the corner Reading Rock with lightning in the corner clearly the rock is calling his next target the room also has several posters of Batman and one for Aquaman The Flash Wonder Woman and specifically the speed race between Superman and the Flash Kareem Watches The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in the Next Room is a Sergio Leone western Clint Eastwood on KCM a parody of TCM Classic Turner Movies I'm assuming he directs classic movies all of Turner's TV stations along with the DC movies are owned by Warner Media.

adam learns from watching tv and learns what the catchphrases are from this kid reminded me a lot of the T800 and terminator 2 befriending john connor
adam floats in the teth
adam statue and says forgive me not because he's forgiving himself himself but because as we later learned that the statue does not represent him, the form of Shazam's Champion was really that of his son, his root.
I'm on Laura's
Adam in a fight with the mercenaries and he recreates the Gunslinger showdown from The Good the Bad and the Ugly and they even bring in more, Coney's famous music plays over this, he takes them all out in a quick firefight and he takes two mercenaries up to the sky to drop them but Hawkman catches them though
Adam just fries them anyway this leads to a rumble through the streets of sharuta Hawkman and
Adam fight near a KFC kandaki Fried Chicken oh pun for scrumptious
Adam Smasher actually then eats a bucket of this stuff before Dr.
Fate wipes it off his hands. I mean, why do you have to do that? You know the guy needs to reload. come on each of the JSA members try to hold
Adam in various ways but
Adam Smasher finally catches up with them and slams
Adam to the ground oh
Adam Smasher I got it but
Adam gets up and knocks him out while I'm on skates . laundry called Big Arm laundry named after the large amputated arm of that statue that wrinkled an ancient behavior this is a amputated arm now in the rotunda next to the octone ruins Adriana confronts
Adam for having killed the wizards who imprisoned him leaving him alone al played by jaimon hansu a backstory we saw in the 2019 movie Shazam when Billy Batson saw an animated form of Dwayne Johnson fighting the Wizards on the rock of Eternity now we know exactly what happened there after Steven I' m on of the mercenaries of Ismael's internal gang.
Owen's backpack is on the left. Back on the street with the pages of the Superman comic book flipping in the breeze,
Adam catches up with the inner gang biker and tells him you need to be more careful with your choice of words next time and tell them the beta locks you, he's parodying by mistake exactly what Eman just did. I told him earlier at the apartment complex that he's still not getting the catchphrase this leads to some kind of stunt game with I own one of the bikes they're not sure which one is parallel Raiders lost the ark to Marion in one of the baskets not sure which one she was in but i'm in ends up in ishmael's custody amman says the champion is coming for me ishmael says i'm counting on it and only because this is dc.
I just have to scream as outrageously as possible that a DC villain is coming for me. Counting on that. in Elmo's room, Pac-Man's wings cut through a poster of the Flash, his maceslams into Aquaman's face, Batman and Wonder Woman figures are thrown into the air and Batman lands on one of them on skateboards and then
Adam's fist goes through a poster. right through Superman Crest another Man of Steel dig, but when
Adam's hand pushes through Emma's stash where the crown is kept, that eternium repels
Adam's Fist and on the other side of that folding drawer is a superman action figure uh huh so we see the one member of the justice league in this room able to stop
adam is superman they fly into the mine to save ammon
adam leroy jenkins is the boss of the others is ready to Kanye's power boo, but if Ishmael's plan was for
Adam to kill him by getting that crown.
I kind of feel bad for all these inter-gang guys that Ishmael said for
Adam to beat his way to get him here. I mean, I feel a little bad for them. they are colonizers give Ishmael the crown and Ishmael reveals that he is a descendant of King Octon and says that death is the only way to life a reversal of Adriana's translation of the inscription Ishmael pulls the trigger and blocks the bullet and fries him As he clutches the crown to his chest and
Adam reveals that he wasn't the true champion his son, that root was garud, Champion's adult form is played by early Logic kefu, the Australian actor from Tonga who plays young rock in that NBC sitcom, surely it's a perfect casting, I love that they got it for this, but root transferred his powers to his father turning him into Rock, they say Shazam at the same time, it's so sad, we are root, this leaves his root vulnerable to Acton archers so back to
Adam D. s current power and surrender to be taken to wallers x
black sight task force and frozen mountain lake.
Amelia Harcourt greets them. Jennifer Holland makes a cameo after the suicide squad and Peacemaker. She says: you know they say the gods created us, but we are the ones who always end up burying them. I love this line because it could hint at their arrangement with Kal-El, a God they recently buried but who was nonetheless resurrected and is now helping them bury all these other gods.
Adam is placed in suspended animation alongside dozens of other metahumans remind me a lot of those human pods in The Matrix, but yes, this tells us that task force x has several god-level metahumans in captivity that are too powerful to keep in captivity. prisons like Bell Reeves-based Superman moment in that post-credits scene that comes right after Waller says he'd send someone in
I really think Halal may have been the one who helped Waller and Harcourt hunt down all these metahumans which tells us that Super the man is not the same Boy Scout these days or if he is a Boy Scout he is the Boy Scout type that gets all his other boy scout friends arrested I mean I was in Eagle Scouts Scouts trustworthy loyal helpful kind Curtis something eating cheerful thirsty Brave clean Reverend and loyal is the second of those Al gives me I'm in a red JSA shirt to wearing his cape to make him look like Captain Underpants for the rest of the movie I mean whatever these movies are made for kids and I am a man having weird thoughts about where in
Adam Smasher's crotch he ran into with Cyclone before.
Kent remembers watching RAF airmen march to the Western Front as a child in reference to World War II. He says that the powers of destiny have allowed him to live longer than most men. Pierce Brosnan is 69 years old, but to have memories of the WWII camp, he would have to be at least 84 or 85 years old. I like that her character is much older than she seems and it's been good to keep her grounded but etched in her mind Adriana realizes that the inscription on the crown is really death is the only way to life we see the soul of ishmael in the rock of finality which is the mirror realm of the rock of Eternity in DC Comics Reign and the lava naturally drips upward here and instead of Shazam Ishmael mutters sabak and he is resurrected by the powers of the six demons of the rock of finality and becomes sabak.
Dr. Faith stops the other JSA members from helping him fight Sabak alone. This fight is pretty wild with every showing of Doctor Fate. sabot kills the camera rolls back. from the golden helmet of another helmet-to-helmet projection until it slides into the helmet of the real Kent simultaneously astral projecting
Adam into the
black site the amount of mental concentration required to multitask like this just hurts my brain daddy fate is a true MVP of this movie we undermine from
Adam's wrestling task force sexual safety to subach wrestling through Fate screenings as if every death is the kind of bead Own two champions getting closer closer and closer to their goal line and they both get there, the Box sits on the throne and unleashes the legions of Hell to fight the people of conduct, and
Adam comes to the surface to say that Shazam is joining the fight .
Hawkman stabs the Box. the shoulder and stabs himself fulfilling Dr. Pete's vision, but it is revealed to be a projection trick he learned from Dr. Fate and that this helmet when his eyes light up continues to help them
Adam finally understands the correct catchphrase tell them man in
Black he sent you and rips half the pocket from the horns down and the catchphrase has never been more appropriate than right now because Ishmael returns at the end of Rock who faced the six demons who will want to know what happened now that he has an answer. for him
adam takes the throne but he says he feels bad so he breaks it and says conduct doesn't need a hero he has enough heroes but he will stay a god like protector. zilla, every Godzilla needs a Kong to challenge him for the throne, right?
It's just nature and speaking of Superman, I go through it fully in my
breakdown of the post-credit scene and really the fascinating story of how they got Henry Cavill to do this. you can follow me on tick tock instagram and twitter at hey boss follow the new rockstar subscribe to new rockstars for more analysis of everything you love thanks for watching bye
