Today was the day we have all been waiting for! The debut of the new Black Adam trailer! Yesterday The Rock shared the news on his Tik Tok that Black Adam has officially wrapped, and today we have the trailer. Check it out below.
This movie is going to be incredible! I can not wait to see The Rock tearing up the DCEU! Black Adam has been in production since the turn of the century! The Rock was tapped to play Black Adam well over a year ago!
Black Adam was a corrupted, ancient Egyptian predecessor of Captain Marvel, who fought his way to modern times to challenge the hero and his Marvel Family associates. Since the turn of the 21st century, however, Black Adam has been redefined by DC Comics writers Jerry Ordway, Geoff Johns, and David S. Goyer as a corrupted antihero attempting to clear his name and reputation. Featured roles in such comic book series as Justice Society of America, Villains United, Infinite Crisis, and New 52 have elevated the character’s prominence in the DC Universe, as well as a featured character in the Injustice storylines and games.
In the upcoming film, nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the Egyptian gods-and imprisoned just as quickly-Black Adam (Rock) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world. Alongside the Rock, the film stars Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone. Sarah Shahi, who plays Adrianna Tomaz, also joins the cast. Tomaz becomes Black Adam’s love interest in the comics. She also is the embodiment of the goddess Isis, and a hero in her own right.
Black Adam hits theaters October 21st 2022.
