Dwayne Johnson brings a few DC friends along in his cinematic debut as the anti-hero Black Adam. In the new trailer, we are introduced to Pierce Brosnan's Doctor Fate, Aldis Hodge's Hawkman, Atom Smasher and Sarah Shahi will become Isis, an Egyptian goddess. Since the Justice League is a bust, will this be DCEU's version of the Avengers?
While it seems the Justice League superheroes will stick to solo projects, another league will arise. In BLACK ADAM, Kent Nelson/Doctor Fate (Brosnan) seems to be assembling his team as one of the original founding members of the Justice League of America which predates the Justice League. But how will they wrangle Black Adam into the group since he doesn't seem to be a team player? We'll get the answers on October 21 when BLACK ADAM hits movie theaters.
From New Line Cinema, Dwayne Johnson stars in the action-adventure “Black Adam.” The first-ever feature film to explore the story of the DC Super Hero comes to the big screen under the direction of Jaume Collet-Serra (“Jungle Cruise”).
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.
Johnson stars alongside Aldis Hodge (“City on a Hill,” “One Night in Miami”) as Hawkman, Noah Centineo (“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”) as Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi (“Sex/Life,” “Rush Hour 3”) as Adrianna, Marwan Kenzari (“Murder on the Orient Express,” “The Mummy”) as Ishmael, Quintessa Swindell (“Voyagers,” “Trinkets”) as Cyclone, Bodhi Sabongui (“A Million Little Things”) as Amon, and Pierce Brosnan (the “Mamma Mia!” and James Bond franchises) as Dr. Fate.
Collet-Serra directed from a screenplay by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, screen story by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, based on characters from DC. Black Adam was created by Bill Parker and C.C. Beck. The film’s producers were Beau Flynn, Dwayne Johnson, Hiram Garcia and Dany Garcia, with Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter, Chris Pan, Eric McLeod, Geoff Johns and Scott Sheldon.
BLACK ADAM smashes into theaters and IMAX internationally beginning 19 October 2022 and in North America on October 21, 2022. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. Credits not final/subject to change
