DC’s big FanDome event happened on Saturday, and we were already primed to see something from Black Adam, which sees Dwayne Johnson bringing his outsized persona to the DC universe. Johnson showed up at the virtual con to showcase an early look at the film, and the footage is also available via his Twitter feed…
Adam rose from being a slave to meting out his particular, powerful brand of justice in the society of Kahndaq 5,000 years ago. It didn’t end so well for him, ending up imprisoned for millennia. And now he’s out and ready to keep fighting.
He’s back to dispense some no-nonsense justice, something that will bring him into conflict with more straightforward heroes, including, in the film the Justice Society Of America, including Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Dr. Fate (Pierce Brosnan), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell) and Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo).
The clip sees Sarah Shahi Adrianna Tomaz and some troops discovering Adam – and it does not end well for them.
With Jaume Collet-Serra directing, the film will be out in July next year.
