‘Black Adam’ Kneels To No One In First Trailer
by Erik Amaya
After talking about the possibility of Black Adam film for seemingly decades, Warner Bros. has release a trailer for the film. And as you’ll see, the character has the powers and swagger to change things in the DC Universe.
The Jungle Cruise star Dwayne Johnson has been attached to play the DC Comics anti-hero since 2014 and often took to his social media to tell people it was still on the way. That day finally nears.
Besides Johnson, the film will include Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone and Marwan Kenzari in an as-yet undisclosed role. Sarah Shahi will also appear as a version of Adrianna Tomaz.
Behind the screen, Jaume Collet-Serra will direct from a script by Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani, based on an earlier draft by Adam Sztykiel. The plot is, of course, unknown, although at one point Johnson teased a story which will both reveal Adam’s life thousands of years ago and a modern day story in which he comes into conflict with the Justice Society of America. Presumably, the film will also set up an eventual fight again Shazam (Zachary Levi).
Black Adam comes to theaters on October 21st.
