Black Adam does have a post-credit scene.
Black Adam has a scene in the middle of the credits that plays after the main end credits sequence.
A.R.G,U.S Director and Suicide Squad assembler Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) gives Black Adam his “only warning” not to stray from his homeland of Kahndaq after she assembling the Justice Society which consists of Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), and Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan).
“Kahndaq is your prison now. You step one foot outside of it, you will not live to regret it,” Waller sternly states. The reigning Black Adam smirkily replies: “There’s no one on this planet that can stop me.”
“I can call in a favor and send people who aren’t from this planet,” Waller retorts, not discussing Task Force X. Not daunted, the god-like Black Adam tells her to “send them all.”
“As you wish.” With that, Black Adam fires a bolt of superhuman electricity, destroying the hologram. Through the smoke comes Waller’s favor–Superman himself, wearing a brightened blue and red suit with his yellow emblem emerging from the darkness like beacon.
It has been a while since anyone has made the world this nervous, Superman tells an unyielding Black Adam. With just a hint of the classic John Williams Superman theme, the Man of Steel says: “Black Adam… we should talk.”
Dwayne Johnson talks about the potential for a Superman cameo in Black Adam during an interview.
Johnson stated that Dany Garcia, his long-time business partner advocated for Henry and that it simply came down to their shared love for Superman. With the new leadership at Warner Brothers, Johnson saw this as an amazing opportunity. He promises to do everything in his power to make sure Black Adam lives up too and possibly surpasses all expectations set by fans of the mythology.
Johnson added: “And if we do our job right, at the end of the movie, then in comes not only the most powerful and unstoppable force in the entire universe in Superman — but also the one that the fans want.”
