The next installment in DC’s Extended Universe has been a long time coming. The anti-hero Black Adam was originally scheduled to be the villain in 2019’s “Shazam!”. Instead, the producers chose to give him his own movie with Dwayne Johnson set to star and produce. After a significant COVID-19 delay, the movie is finally set to release this year with Jaume Collet-Serra attached to direct. And now we have our first full trailer.
5,000 years after being imbued with the powers of the Egyptian gods, Johnson’s angry Black Adam is freed from his earthly tomb and sets out to unleash his special brand of justice. But not only does the movie focus on Teth-Adam, but we also get Doctor fate (Pierce Brosnan), Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), and Isis (Sarah Shahi). What a cool batch of supporting superheros. And Black Adam is a fascinating character himself. If the movie gives him the edge he deserves, this could be a lot of fun.
“Black Adam” is scheduled to release October 21st. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
I think they could have created a better trailer. After watching other Super Hero film trailers this was a bit underwhelming.
I kinda enjoyed it. I like the collection of supporting heroes and I liked the more lighthearted moments. I definitely enjoyed it more than the Thor trailer which left me more concerned than excited.
I’m all super-hero’d out so can’t get excited about this. Do love a bit of The Rock though.
I’ve been pretty interested in this one. Plus I’ve been wanting more DC movies mainly because they tend to offer something different than the MCU. We shall see.
Yes, I can’t think of a better actor to be a superhero (?) that hasn’t already been one.
It’s kinda wild that he hasn’t been one yet.
It looks kinda cool and fun though…. the Crock is still a gullible little bitch.
I really like the Black Adam character. Hopefully the movie does him justice.
I’m all in. If DC wants to make some MCU money, they might as well bring on Dwayne. I am very interested to see if people are superhero-fatigued, or just Marvel-fatigued.
I’ll be honest, I’m Marvel fatigued. I hope this one gives the genre a jolt.
