Black Adam Trailer Reveals Dwayne Johnson Bringing the Thunder To the DC Universe
DC has revealed the first official trailer for the highly-anticipated Black Adam. The film that will star Dwayne Johnson as the popular antihero has teased the blockbuster film for months now with the short but electrifying teaser, and posters that have been released. We now get a full look at the film that all but guarantees to be a heavy-hitting introduction to Black Adam in the DCU.
The trailer description reads:
“Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods—and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.”
The trailer shows Black Adam facing off against the Justice Society of America which is made up of Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Cyclone, and Atom Smasher. As we can see the JSA and Black Adam are at odds with one scene in the trailer pitting Hawkman and Black Adam face-to-face as Hawkman reminds Black Adam that heroes don’t kill people with Black Adam responding very accurately that he does.
Starring alongside Johnson will be Aldis Hodge, Pierce Brosnan, Quintessa Swindell, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, James Cusati-Moyer, and Marwan Kenzari. The film was helmed by Jaume-Collet Serra from a script written by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab Noshirvani. Johnson will also executive produce the film alongside Walter Hamada, Eric McLeod, and Scott Sheldon.
Black Adam will arrive in theaters on October 21st, 2022. Check out the trailer below:
