Black Adam Soundtrack: Explore Every Song in the DC Feature

Black Adam’s debut in the DCEU can definitely be characterized by its relentless high-octane action and it has an equally heart-racing soundtrack to match. We explore all of the popular songs and instrumental tracks.

Working off a $195 million budget, Black Adam has become Dwayne Johnson’s best opening weekend ever, raking in $67 million in ticket sales at the domestic box office.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, Black Adam is based on the DC Comics character of the same name about the anti-hero who reigns havoc on modern times after being imprisoned for five thousand years and only the Justice Society of America can stop him. The feature stars Dwayne Johnson, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, Bodhi Sabongui, and Pierce Brosnan.

Black Adam Score – Meet Composer Lorne Balfe

The energetic and powerful score in Black Adam comes from renowned Scottish composer Lorne Balfe.

Balfe’s credits include MCU entry Black Widow, Ghost in the Shell, and the Assassin’s Creed video game franchise.

Speaking to Comicbook.com, Balfe explained how he based the Black Adam score on Dwayne Johnson’s personality fused with the anti-hero’s character:

“The Black Adam main theme, I’d like to think when you close your eyes and you see The Rock, that’s what you hear. There was taking a pinch of his personality, as well as the character of Black Adam. It all had to go together. It’s been a great feedback, regarding it.”
