Dwayne Johnson unveiled the first official trailer for Black Adam on Wednesday.
In the over two-minute trailer, also shared by Warner Bros. and DC Comics, the actor is seen as the titular DC Comics villain.
In the trailer of Dwayne’s long-awaited take on the DC Comics antihero, you’ll meet the man in black himself, as well as many other heroes.
The trailer looked like a dark mythological tale.
Sharing the trailer on Instagram, Dwayne wrote, “As promised, our world premiere @blackadammovie trailer.
This passion project has become my DNA and the hierarchy of power in the DC Universe will change.
The world needed a hero. It got Black Adam. Rage.”
“There are a couple of things we wanted to convey [with that trailer],” producer Hiram Garcia said at a recent 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 honouring 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.”
It’s been many years since Dwayne Johnson began talking about playing the DC Comics character, Black Adam.
In 2019, the actor shared his first look in and as Black Adam, along with its release date, which was later postponed.
