5 Actors Who Could’ve Played Black Adam in the DC Extended Universe

Black Adam, Captain Marvel’s most formidable opponent, serves as a mirror to the superhero due to his status as the predecessor. Although the role has been cast in the DC Extended Universe for some time, it’s still intriguing to consider other actors who could have portrayed the anti-hero. The ideal Black Adam would need a powerful build and intelligence to match. Here are five actors who could’ve successfully played Black Adam:

Gerard Butler

Gerard Butler Black Adam

Gerard Butler‘s role in 300 proved he can handle action-packed roles. He strikes a balance between being famous enough to attract viewers but not so famous that he overshadows the character. Although he doesn’t resemble an ancient Egyptian, Hollywood has a way of making things work, as evidenced by his role as Set in the poorly-received movie, Gods of Egypt.

Dave Bautista

Dave Bautista Black Adam

Dave Bautista is better known for his professional wrestling and mixed martial arts career, but he has appeared in numerous movies. His roles include Brass Body in The Man with the Iron Fists, Mr. Hinx in Spectre, and Tong Po in the Kickboxer reboot. He even has superhero movie experience, having played Drax the Destroyer in the Guardians of the Galaxy films.

Terry Crews

Terry Crews

Terry Crews, a former NFL player turned actor, is best known for his comedic roles but is more than capable of playing other characters. Crews has the muscular build needed to convincingly portray Black Adam and fits the ancient Egyptian look with his Nubian skin.

Jason Momoa

Jason Momoa Black Adam

Jason Momoa is already set to play Aquaman in the DC Extended Universe, but it’s not difficult to imagine him as Black Adam. His physique, skin tone, and on-screen presence make him a strong contender for the role.

Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson Black Adam

Dwayne Johnson was ultimately the right choice to play Black Adam in the DC Extended Universe. However, it’s interesting to consider whether Johnson may have been even better as Captain Marvel. His enthusiasm and charisma make him well-suited for playing the superhero. Regardless, he possesses the right combination of characteristics to play Black Adam, and his stint as the Scorpion King solidifies him as the ideal candidate.
