A new leak of alleged Black Adam details corroborate earlier reports. Character descriptions, a plot synopsis, and crew credits say Adam will be a villain bordering on an anti-hero. That and he is to share the screen with Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Doctor Fate, and members of the Justice Society of America.

Geeks WorldWide writer and self-proclaimed “Entertainment Insider” Vullein is the source and he shared his findings on the Reddit page DCEUleaks.

The storyline and character descriptions indicate, like in the comics, Black Adam is a champion corrupted by power and “a quest for dominance over all magic.”

“Storyline: Based on the DC Comics supervillain. Black Adam is a champion turned villain whose quest for dominance over all magic drives him to destroy anything that stands in his path.

Black Adam – A corrupt, ancient Egyptian predecessor of Captain Marvel, who fought his way to modern times to challenge the hero and his Marvel Family associates. – Lead Male (40-50)”

What turns him villain could have something to do with a tragedy that befalls his family, according to co-producer Hiram Garcia. He spoke to ComicBook.com months ago:

“But ultimately this is a guy who he does have a moral compass as skewed as it may be. And ultimately he is a guy that everything has always been driven by his family and what happens to them. And he is never opposed to unleashing hell when you cross him.”

Of course, the lead male, 40-50, playing the Wizard’s ancient chosen one is Dwayne Johnson who produces with his ex-brother-in-law Garcia through Seven Bucks Productions (or 7 Bucks Entertainment).

Johnson is adamant Black Adam shall become an anti-hero eventually:

“Black Adam, how he starts, he starts off as a villain. Then, he becomes an anti-hero. And then he might become a hero or he might not.”

Right underneath the above synopsis and character breakdown is the bigger story everyone is wondering about. Sans full details, the other roles listed are Hawkman, Isis, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher, Stargirl, and Hawkgirl. Isis and Hawkman lead so they’ll be rather important to the story. All others are supporting, including Hawkgirl, so her presence may not be as big a deal as first thought.

The search is on for the actors who will play Hawkgirl and the members of the JSA so I guess we will know for sure by the time we get those announcements. Black Adam begins shooting in 2020 and anything can change.
