The first official trailer for Black Adam has been released, giving us a great first-look at the Dwayne Johnson-led DC Comics movie. From filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, Black Adam stars Dwayne Johnson as the titular DC Comics villain/anti-hero. This has been a long time coming for fans of the character, as Dwayne Johnson has been attached to the project for more than a decade.
The first trailer for Black Adam gives us our best look yet at the upcoming comic-book movie, which looks like it will be an epic-scale, action-packed DC Comics adventure. While the trailer largely focuses on Johnson’s Black Adam, a character general audiences will know little to nothing about, we also get a good look at some members of the Justice Society of America – including Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher and Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate.
Watch the trailer below:
Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods—and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.
Johnson stars alongside Aldis Hodge (“City on a Hill,” “One Night in Miami”) as Hawkman, Noah Centineo (“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”) as Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi (“Sex/Life,” “Rush Hour 3”) as Adrianna, Marwan Kenzari (“Murder on the Orient Express,” “The Mummy”) as Ishmael, Quintessa Swindell (“Voyagers,” “Trinkets”) as Cyclone, Bodhi Sabongui (“A Million Little Things”) as Amon, and Pierce Brosnan (the “Mamma Mia!” and James Bond franchises) as Dr. Fate. Collet-Serra directed from a screenplay by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, screen story by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani.
Black Adam arrives in theatres on Oct. 21.
