Black Adam: Dwayne Johnson crushes everything that moves in new trailer

Surrounded by smoke and lightning, Dwayne Johnson appeared as Black Adam on stage at San Diego Comic Con to cheers from the audience. He took the opportunity to reveal the new trailer for the DC movie.

Expected October 19th, Black Adam is likely to blow up the DC Universe! Dwayne Johnson, who put all his heart and soul into the project, caught fire on the Comic Con stage, appearing among the lightning, all muscular in a superhero costume.

The actor, who already revealed the first trailer last June, took the opportunity to show off brand new looks!

We already know that the story will begin in the past, in Egypt, with the death and then resurrection of the protagonist. The story will then move back in time to the present as Black Adam and his powers are released and he faces the Justice Society of America.

Director Jaume Collet-Serra, who was present on stage at Comic Con along with Dwayne Johnson, promised that the character of Black Adam would resemble Dirty Harry, played by Clint Eastwood.

Violent and politically incorrect, this Hollywood super cop inspired a director who wanted the superhero to fully embrace this ambivalent side, constantly flirting with the gray area.


“Heroes don’t kill people,” chanted Hawkman (Aldis Hodge) at the heart of the first trailer. Black Adam then retorts, “I, yes!” That says a lot about Shazam’s nemesis who doesn’t plan on playing nimble, slick heroes.

In addition to Hawkman, the team includes Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), Atomic Smasher (Noah Centineo) or Doctor Fate, to whom Pierce Brosnan gives his traits. Also note that Viola Davis will be reprising her role as Amanda Waller (Suicide Squad) in this feature film.

“You can be the destroyer of this world… or you can be its savior,” Dr. Faith says in the footage, referring to Black Adam. What choice will he make?

Will the feature film be independent or will it tie into Shazam 2, which is expected in December? And can Dwayne Johnson fully embrace the darkness of Black Adam, even if it means turning his image of a family star on its head? The answer is October 19, 2022 in theaters.

Additionally, Henry Cavill did not appear on stage during the DC panel, ending rumors of him attending Comic Con to announce the new Superman.
