Are mad about Black Adam was less of the villain he was he was first introduced? Well, if you aren’t (mad), then great cos’ you will probably like his very first standalone live-action movie called, well, Black Adam. First teased at last year’s DC Fan Dome, today Warner Bros. Pictures dropped the first official trailer.
Not going to lie. The silver screen Black Adam may not be the corrupted Mighty Adam I have known but my interest is piqued. Very much piqued. Having said that, we’d suggest you ditch what you know about this original Captain Marvel/Shazam before you watch the trailer (and later the movie), Here’s the gist:
“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.”
Black Adam stars Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock as the titular character along with Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Sarah Sashi as Adrianna, Marwan Kenzari as Ishmael, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, Bodhi Sabongui as Amon, and Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate.
The movie was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra of Jungle Cruise.
