First Glance: “Black Adam” Trailer 2

The first trailer for the DC Extended Universe’s “Black Adam” left me interested but not sold. Now the studio has dropped trailer #2 and now I can proudly say I’m all onboard. Sure there are still questions. But I really like the new footage and (more importantly) the collection of characters who will be be introduced to the DCEU. And just hearing the words “Justice Society” uttered had me smiling like a little boy. Doctor Fate, Hawkman, Atom Smasher…. Let’s go!

I’m still not sure if I’ll be able to see past Dwayne Johnson’s big personality to get to the core of the character Black Adam. But the actor certainly brings the intensity in the new trailer. I love Black Adam, and his story is tremendous movie material. And what I like even more is that this feels like the return of the larger-than-life superhero movie. While the MCU seems content with light, frothy, and more grounded content, DC is at its best when it takes its heroes seriously and tells their stories with plenty of grit. That’s what I want from this movie, and the new trailer looks promising.

“Black Adam” hits theaters October 21st. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. It looks very interesting and I’m with you on the Justice Society, that made me smile . I do share your concerns about Johnson. I hope he can move past his over the top personality and presence to do Black Adam justice .

    • I know where you’re coming from. But I’m optimistic about this one. I have some nostalgic attachment to Black Adam and Justice Society. I also like how DC movies have a little edge to them. That’s what I’m hoping for at least.
