Black Adam Trailer: Dwayne Johnson is notorious DC antihero fighting against Justice Society of America; Pierce Brosnan takes on the role of Doctor Fate

The action-packed epic trailer of Black Adam starring Dwayne Johnson is here. The notorious DC antihero is all set to take over the theatres in October after a really long journey. Black Adam is based on the DC Comics character of the same name. While Black Adam is typically an enemy of Shazam, the upcoming film will not actually feature Zachary Levi’s Shazam. Instead, Black Adam will put Johnson’s ancient character against the Justice Society of America. The film will also mark the first appearance of the JSA on the big screen. The squad includes Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Aldis Hodge as Hawkman.

“There are a couple of things we wanted to convey [with that trailer],” producer Hiram Garcia told io9 at a press event. “One, that the movie’s fun. The movie’s big. Two, I think that when you see Black Adam, you realize that we’re honoring the comic book version of Black Adam. He doesn’t pull his punches. He can be judge, jury, and executioner. And his approach to how he does things is very much opposite of what typical heroes would do.”

“When Black Adam arrives, when a person at that power level comes on the scene, it’s the type of thing that gets the entire planet to notice,” Garcia said. “So naturally, there are going to be people who investigate the arrival of someone like that. And that’s the kind of energy that brings these two together. He’s a threat and they’re not used to having someone like that, who’s a live wire, that powerful, and so a team needs to go investigate.”

Black Adam is directed by Jaume Collett-Serra. The film is set to be released in theaters on October 21 in English, Hindi, Tamil & Telugu.
