The appearance of Multiversus (opens in new tab) Season 1 has come alongside an in-game commercial that reveals off two extra characters possible coming to the platform fighter this 12 months: Black Adam, from DC Comics, and Stripe, from the 1984 film Gremlins. That is proper, youngsters, a duo of Antihero and malicious alien… factor are your subsequent Multiversus rivals. Black Adam was on the earlier record of leaked Multiversus characters (opens in new tab), however that record additionally famous protagonist Gizmo, relatively than Stripe, from Gremlins because the character from that franchise.
Black Adam, a personality almost 80 years previous so I am going to need to be a bit easy right here, was first a villain antagonist to the Shazam character. Black Adam is a magically-empowered human who wields energies granted by the traditional Egyptian gods. He is the form of unhealthy dude that may struggle Superman to a standstill. In the previous couple of many years, nevertheless, the character has been reinvented as a extra sympathetic and complicated antihero. He is additionally the topic of a movie (opens in new tab) starring Dwayne Johnson, as a consequence of launch later this 12 months on October twenty first, so… I would anticipate him earlier than or round then. I am going to additionally guess you the character will get a Dwayne Johnson-flavored pores and skin, if the studio can swing it.
The opposite addition is approach much less predictable, not less than as an outsider. It is Stripe, the weird and harsh antagonist from 1984 black horror comedy but in addition film for kids with sufficient violence that it helped get the PG-13 score invented in the USA. I am unsure what else to say, however Stripe will in all probability have a transfer the place he makes use of a buzz-saw blade or possibly pulls a gun, that are issues he does within the film—my vote’s on murderer for his class. Both approach, this in all probability lends credence to the concept Gremlins 3, a film completely no one requested for, is coming in 2023.
