Black Adam redefines the hierarchy of the DC Universe in the film’s first trailer; watch
It’s been a while since we’ve heard about the Black Adam movie starring The Rock and while some previews have been shared over the last few months, we haven’t had a chance to of the production in a literal way.
That all changed this week, when the first official trailer for the film was finally released. After a countdown made by The Rock himself, the video finally shows more of the plot and how Black Adam will have to adapt to the present day.
In the story, the character who was a slave in Ancient Egypt ends up being revived by the powers of the Wizard Shazam!, however, he ends up being more brutal than his counterpart Billy Batson, being considered an anti-hero.
Years later, he is eventually found by Doctor Fate, a powerful sorcerer who has a terrifying vision of the awakening of Black Adam, but together with the Justice Society, they will have to face a new threat that promises to destroy the world.
Dwayne Johnson stars in Black Adam opposite Aldis Hodge (“City on a Hill,” “A Night in Miami”) as Hawkman; Noah Centineo (“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”) as Atom Crusher; Sarah Shahi (“Sex/Life” series, “Rush Hour 3”) as Adrianna; Marwan Kenzari (“Murder on the Orient Express,” “The Mummy”) as Ishmael; Quintessa Swindell (“Travelers – Instinct and Desire”, “Gatunas” series) as Cyclone; Bodhi Sabongui (“One Million Things” series) as Amon; and Pierce Brosnan (the “Mamma Mia!” and James Bond franchises) as Doctor Fate.

Black Adam: The Rock shows off the film’s costume and filming room in post after revealing premiere date
The next film starring Dwayne Johnson, famous The Rock, is still not that close to becoming a reality. But that doesn’t mean that DC fans aren’t looking forward to the release of “Black Adam”, as since 2019 – when Johnson first published a poster to announce the film – news has been coming to light.
Since the first news about the feature film, it has been revealed that actor Pierce Brosnan, the former 007, will be responsible for bringing the Lord of Fate to life on the big screen. In mid-March of this year, The Rock took to social media to publicize the film’s release date with a new video.
Now, we have a new glimpse into what’s to come with the film in 2022. Johnson shared a black-and-white image from the production’s filming set, in which it’s possible to get a glimpse of Black Adam’s suit draped over the actor’s shoulders. .
In the photo, The Rock hovers over a large room apparently collapsing. You can also get a sense of the materials used to make the costume. Check out the post below.

BLACK ADAM ⚡️
This image of Black Adam from behind gives you a tactile sense of the sheer massive scale and size of our film.
You also see some of the intricate and beautiful textured detail of Black Adam’s body suit.
(this is not your typical DC or Marvel Padded muscle suit)
And finally, you get a glimpse of the massive and fitting destruction.
As we all know, superheroes have a code of justice and don’t kill the bad guys.
But, Black Adam does.
The hierarchy of power in the DC UNIVERSE is changing.
The man in black.
Protector of his people.
Black Adam is scheduled for release in July 2022 and is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. The story will introduce DC’s original superhero team, the Justice Society of America — a group of WWII heroes. The producer of the film and also partner of The Rock, Dany Garcia, already gave details about the production of the costume for Dwayne Johnson:
My husband is the DJ strength and conditioning coach [Dwayne Johnson]and they managed to get their physique to the right place with so much time before shooting that one. [foto do set]. There wasn’t much ‘Where are we quilting or where are we adding?’ and things like that. I’ve seen him in full costume and let me tell you — it’s one thing!

Black Adam Casts Pierce Brosnan, aka 007, as Doctor Fate
The last time we heard news about the Black Adam movie, it was during the DC Fandome online event, which took place last year, but this week, The Rock, the protagonist of the long, decided to share interesting news about the cast and characters that will play part of the long.
Through a post on his social networks, The Rock revealed that Pierce Brosnan, the former 007, will play Doctor Fate in the plot.
In the comics, Doctor Fate is an entity embodied by the sorcerer Giovanni Zatara, Zatanna’s father, when donning Nabu’s helmet. Doom is one of DC’s most powerful mystical beings and should be of great importance to the Justice Society and leave hooks for Zatanna’s solo movie.
Such a pleasure to announce the final member of our #JusticeSociety, the bad ass statesman, Mr Pierce Brosnan as the…

The Rock publishes poster of himself as Black Adam and confirms movie release date
First seen in comics in the year 1945, the character Black Adam is preparing to be the newest DC hero to reach the cinema, following the same path as Shazam, presented this year.
To represent the character and bring it to life on screen, the choice was the American actor The Rock, who since his confirmation has been extremely excited to play the hero, the most recent novelty being the disclosure by the actor himself of an image that would show what will the characterization look like?
Very close to the visual identity seen in the comics, the image reveals the use of the traditional black and gold/yellow uniform in a dark environment, including skulls and more.
In addition, the image also presented its possible release date in American theaters: 12/22/2021. This date is a little more elastic due to the fact that the film has not yet started production, which is expected by the middle of the second half of next year.

The Man in Black ⚡️ Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero. Having cool superpowers, fighting for what’s right and always protecting the people. It all changed for me, when I was 10yrs old and was first introduced to the greatest superhero of all time – SUPERMAN. As a kid, Superman was the hero I always wanted to be. But, a few years into my fantasy, I realized that Superman was the hero, I could never be. I was too rebellious. Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority. Despite my troubles, I was still a good kid with a good heart – I just liked to do things my way. Now, years later as a man, with the same DNA I had as a kid – my superhero dreams have come true. I’m honored to join the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to become, BLACK ADAM. BLACK ADAM is blessed by magic with the powers equal to SUPERMAN, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people-but he does it his way. Truth and justice – the BLACK ADAM way. This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together. BLACK ADAM 12.22.21 ⚡️ Huge thank you to my friends, @jimlee and @bosslogic for this first time ever bad ass collaboration.
