Debuting yesterday during the DC FanDome event, Dwayne Johnson revealed a first-look reveal of the teaser trailer prepared for the Black Adam film due in 2021.
“I’m honored to join the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to become Black Adam. Black Adam is blessed by magic with the powers equal to Superman, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one-of-a-kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people — but he does it his way. Truth and justice — the Black Adam way. This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together.”
Dwayne Johnson is set to star as the DC Comics anti-hero in this film directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. The DC FanDome panel presented concept art of what fans can expect from the Shazam spin-off, including Black Adam’s costume.
Dwayne Johnson was also joined by relative newcomer, Noah Centineo, who’ll play Black Adam’s foe Atom Smasher, a member of the Justice Society of America.
Hawkman, Doctor Fate, and Cyclone were also announced as additional JSA members that will appear in the film.
“I have a knack for destroying bullies, but there are some who think I need help,” Johnson narrated as Black Adam. “Hawkman, Doctor Fate, and their new recruits: Cyclone and Atom Smasher. They call themselves the Justice Society, an organization that believes in fighting for truth and justice. Well, I’m going to teach them that the only beliefs I fight for are mine. Welcome to truth, justice, and the Black Adam way.”
Black Adam is scheduled to open December 22, 2021.
