A trailer for Black Adam has surfaced, bringing us one step closer to seeing the film in theaters. The only problem is that it hasn’t been made public yet. Still, we’re looking forward to seeing Dwayne Johnson take on a character in this new role that’s even fiercer and rowdier than his wrestling image. This is Teth-Adam, also known as Black Adam, a mystical entity whose roots go back 5,000 years but emerges in the present to confront the team that predates the Justice League.
However, when can we expect a Black Adam movie? And how anti-heroic will he be?? To understand it all, we sift through decades of comic book history and current news events. Oh, and if you haven’t already, scroll down to see a brand new image of DJ as Black Adam!
Black Adam, as Johnson has hinted, will not be a benevolent character. An anti-superhero theme runs through the plot of the film, which starts with its roots in the distant past and eventually moves closer to the present.
According to Johnson’s social media posts, “Black Adam” has real “magic powers similar to Superman’s, but he doesn’t play by the rules and he doesn’t play by the rules.” In his own way, he’s an original, rebellious superhero committed to doing what’s right for people.”

Black Adam movie release date
The movie Black Adam will be released on July 29, 2022. This is the game’s second release date, after a long period where there was none at all. Johnson initially mentioned a release date of December 22, 2021, which is November this year. It was through a takeover of Times Square billboards that Johnson made this statement, which he then broadcast on social media in video form.
It has since been announced that the Black Adam film would be delayed due to the COVID-19 epidemic, which has caused a lot of delay in the film industry. Now it looks like the team behind Black Adam is waiting for things to be ironed out before announcing a new – and hopefully final – release date for the game.
At CinemaCon 2022 (the annual cinema owners convention), Dwayne Johnson debuted the first trailer for Black Adam, which has not yet been made available to the general public. According to Deadline, the footage begins with Dr. Fate (Pierce Brosnan) asking a question, “What exactly are the skills that have been bestowed on you, Black Adam? Do you have feelings for someone but are you heartbroken?”
After that, Black Adam talks about being born a slave and becoming “born again a god”, and then we see him among other things “destroy helicopters and come into contact with what appear to be mercenaries”. After that, Black Adam actually manages to catch a missile. Hawkman, played by Aldis Hodge, appears to challenge Black Adam, claiming that “heroes don’t kill people,” to which Black Adam responds by stating, “Well, I sure do.”
Dwayne Johnson appeared in a new teaser trailer for Black Adam, which premiered at DC Fandom 2021 and showed us some of him in the armor. We also had the opportunity to meet his supporting cast. Then, in the actual clip, he burned a guy’s skull to ashes with a flamethrower.
