Black Adam is expected to be a movie that reboots the whole DCEU and opens a new phase for this franchise by DC and WB. Dwayne Johnson is the leading actor and plays Teth Adam, the very first antihero in this universe. Although the movie does not perform quite as well as expected, it is a major project for another start of this universe. Other than the predictable plot and the new characters that do not have enough screen time, Black Adam is still enjoyable for being a well-produced superhero movie from DC this year. The surprise cameo appearance of Henry Cavill as Superman is also a memorable moment. 

#6. Thor: Love And Thunder (6.3/10)

Thor is the fourth movie in the series featuring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Christian Bale. It focuses on the journey of the God of Thunder after Avengers: Endgame. In general, it is a comedic and standard superhero movie. However, critics and audiences aren’t pleased with the story and also the visual effects. The performance of the cast is the spotlight of the latest Thor movie. Seemingly, this is not the finale of this series yet. Hopefully the next Thor movie might better be a good superhero movie.
