The Middle Geeks Episode 45: ‘Black Adam’ Review with Hanna Flint

We welcome Hanna back on the podcast for us to review Black Adam together!

The Rock has finally arrived as Black Adam in the DCEU. But does he really “change the hierarchy” of the universe that much? How well did the film do at portraying the fictionalized SWANA/MENA country of Kahndaq, and was this film good SWANA/MENA representation with the actors Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Bodhi Sabongui, and Mo Amer? Were the JSA necessary at all in this movie, or did they just convolute it further? We discuss all of that, along with the news that James Gunn and Peter Safran are the co-chairs of DC Studios, give our recommendations, and much more!
