Black Adam Trailer: We finally got the first trailer of Black Adam, and we are lost for words. This might be one of the best comic book movie trailers we have gotten in a long while. The trailer was loved by fans all over the world.
There has always been a sense of doubt regarding how DCEU will adapt the character of Black Adam. A multi-layered character like him needs to be treated with utmost sincerity, as it has so many layers and can be anything you want.
When Black Adam was first introduced in DC Universe, he was one of the strongest supervillains. But he did a complete 360 in modern DC comics and became an Anti-Hero. And that is the best version of Black Adam.
We will discuss it later because another thing worth noticing is that the Black Adam trailer introduced Justice Society Of America to the DCEU. The trailer introduced Hawkman, Atom Smasher, Cyclone, and Doctor Fate.
Black Adam Plot
Black Adam Plot: The movie’s official synopsis reads, “Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the Egyptian gods- and imprisoned just as quickly-“Black Adam” is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.”
The trailer introduced us to the story a little bit as well. We know that Black Adam was a slave in his previous life and was killed after suffering many hardships. But he was reborn as a god and started establishing his own brand of justice.
We see a confrontation between Hawkman and Black Adam on whether heroes should kill or not. So, we can figure out that Black Adam will fight against the Justice Society of America and the American Government in the movie.
But it is also given that DCEU is not presenting Black Adam as a villain. So, he will join forces with JSA at some point in time to fight against a more significant threat.
The trailer did not show us who this bigger threat is. Still, we guess that Sin-Eater, a Thanagarian demon, happened in JSA#21 when Flash traveled back in time and slightly changed the timeline because DCEU is also going in the same direction.
Black Adam Cast
Black Adam Cast: As of now, only a limited amount of cast is revealed. And that is given, considering there are four months remaining in the release of Black Adam. But the cast released so far is star-studded and also can perform such roles with ease.
- Dwayne Johnson as Teth-Adam / Black Adam
- Aldis Hodge as Carter Hall / Hawkman
- Noah Centineo as Albert “Al” Rothstein / Atom Smasher
- Sarah Shahi as Adrianna Tomaz
- Quintessa Swindell as Maxine Hunkel / Cyclone
- Pierce Brosnan as Kent Nelson / Doctor Fate
Marwan Kenzari, James Cusati-Moyer, Bodhi Sabongui, Mo Amer, and Uli Latukefu have also been cast in undisclosed roles. As we just stated, they are trying to keep these characters a secret at least until the second trailer. And we have no problem with it.
Black Adam Release Date
Black Adam Release Date: Now, let’s talk about the reason you are here for. Black Adam will be exclusively released on October 21, 2022, in theaters. The movie’s runtime will be disclosed very soon, and we will update you as well.
As we all know, every DCEU movie goes to HBO Max and at DC Universe as well. But these OTT platforms are not available in every country as of now, so we will get Black Adam on other OTT platforms as well.
We will update you as soon as something is announced. The movie is rated U/A, so you can go and watch it with your family.
Black Adam: What To Expect?
Black Adam: Judging by the trailer, we are in for an absolute treat of a movie. The cast looks fantastic; the music will definitely be good. We are sure of it. The music in the trailer was so good, can’t wait for the album to drop down so we can binge it.
Other than that, the VFX of Black Adam is looking slick. The costumes, the power-up scenes, the electricity, everything looks so good. Even the locations of the movie are beautiful. It will be a visual delight for all comic book movie fans.
And we all know that action of this movie will be brilliant. After all, you got The Rock at the helm of it. And considering Black Adam is not your typical good guy, his origin story will also be different from what you have seen so far in superhero movies.
And DCEU can do so much more from this movie alone. We can get Justice Society Of America’s movie or show. Shazam vs. Black Adam seems not too far-fetched now. But considering Black Adam is not a supervillain, will he join hands with Shazam and sit on his rightful throne?
We are getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s just wait for the movie and enjoy it when it comes out.
