Black Adam tells the origins of the DC anti-hero, played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Black Adam is - at the moment - the only DC cinecomic scheduled for 2022. Amidst problems related to post-production and legal troubles for the performers, Warner Bros. was in fact forced to modify a large part of the DCEU release list. The fate of the comic-based Universe is therefore on the shoulders of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. After numerous leaks, photos, and official trailers, the film shows itself in the latest, spectacular trailer, which portrays the hero in serious danger and anticipates numerous and unpredictable implications of the plot.
Black Adam: the - many - previews contained in the final trailer
Black Adam, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, will be available in cinemas from 21 October 2022 and will tell the story of a character little known to the general public. The film will therefore be configured as an origin story, of which you have a first glimpse in the trailer. In fact, the movie opens with a voiceover that explains the origin of the anti-hero's powers, born from the anger of having lost his son - sacrificed himself to save his life - and therefore considered more a curse than a gift.
The trailer then shows, for the first time, the return of Amanda Waller, played - as happened in Suicide Squad and in the James Gunn reboot - by Viola Davis. Waller appears, in this version, to be very closely linked to the Justice Society of America - a group of superheroes from Golden Age DC - who will appear alongside Black Adam.
In the film, to lend body and voice to the members of the team are Pierce Brosnan - Doctor Fate -, Aldis Hodge - Hawkman -, Noah Centineo - Atom Smasher -, Quintessa Swindell - Cyclone. But the surprises don't end there. In fact, the clip ends with a shot showing the cinecomic villain, the fearsome and demonic Sabbac, shot only from behind, while facing Hawkman. To find out more about Waller's role and Sabbac's appearance, all that remains is to wait until 21 October.
