The trailer for Black Adam, starring Dwayne Johnson and Pierce Brosnan, has just been released. You can watch it here:
The film, which is set to be released later this year, is a spin-off from Shazam! with Johnson portraying Black Adam.
There is very little information at the moment about the plot but the movie will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a screenplay by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab Noshirvani.
It's clear to see that fans are already looking forward to watching Johnson take on the role.
One person wrote: "The suits in Black Adam look amazing. You can tell a lot of work was put into the details to make that movie look amazing and I cant wait."
Another added: "They need a damn raise, they did an amazing job, I’m even more hyped for this film!"
Taking to Twitter, Johnson shared the trailer himself, writing: "The World Needs Heroes. Powerful line up From the BLACK ADAM UNIVERSE. Your 1st LOOK at the JUSTICE SOCIETY:
"Hierarchy of power is about to change."
In response to him, someone commented: "Omg I can't wait to see all these amazing people! Congrats."
Another wrote: "Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait! Been waiting on this movie for what feels like forever!"
And a third said: "These scenes of @blackadammovie
look badass epic! Can’t wait to @TheRock
in action! Bring on July!"
For those that are unfamiliar with the origin of the titular Black Adam, we can learn that he was a slave 5,000 years ago in the ancient and magical civilisation of Kahndaq, where he rebelled and tried to overthrow those who had subjugated him.
It didn't go that well for him, though. He ended up in prison for millennia, but of course - he's now out and ready to fight some more.
The Rock went on to praise Black Adam's more - let's say - robust style of justice. It's not quite as straightforward as the goody-two-shoes justice of a lot of superheroes.
In fact, he's probably going to end up rubbing up against a few of those as the character arc progresses through several films.
Black Adam is due to land in cinemas in the US on 29 July 2022.
