In an intense, action-packed trailer, Black Adam is finally here.
The Rock is finally a superhero—or at least a person with superpowers—today.
Black Adam, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, is set to hit theatres on October 21.
In this first teaser trailer, you'll meet the man in black himself, as well as a bevvy of other heroes.
Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), and Dr. Fate are members of the Justice Society of America (Pierce Brosnan).
When you first encounter Black Adam, you'll notice that it's a comic book depiction of the character.
He isn't afraid to say what he thinks.
He has the ability to act as a judge, jury, and executioner.
And his method of doing things is the polar opposite of what most heroes would do."
That explains why the Justice Society of America appears in this film, which tells the origin narrative of this super-powered anti-hero.
He's a menace, and they're not used to having someone like that, a live wire with that much power, so a team needs to investigate."
Fans will observe, however, that while we learn about Black Adam's origins, family, and the fact that he kills people, they will not learn much about the film's plot in the trailer.
You learn about what occurred to him and what finally drove him.
However, the idea was that this would be more of a teaser.
Then, when new information becomes available, you'll be able to learn a little bit more about the story."
Black Adam hits cinemas on October 21, and we'll get more from Dwayne Johnson on how this picture will usher in a new era in the franchise.
