Sharing the trailer on Instagram, Dwayne wrote, “As promised, our world premiere @blackadammovie trailer. This passion project has become my DNA and the hierarchy of power in the DC Universe will change. The world needed a hero. It got Black Adam. Rage.”

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, Black Adam is scheduled to release on October 21. The superhero film will include lesser-known heroes – members of the Justice Society of America – such as Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), and Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan).

“There are a couple of things we wanted to convey [with that trailer],” producer Hiram Garcia said at a recent press event. “One, that the movie’s fun. The movie’s big. Two, I think that when you see Black Adam, you realize that we’re honouring the comic book version of Black Adam. He doesn’t pull his punches. He can be judge, jury, and executioner. And his approach to how he does things is very much opposite of what typical heroes would do.”

It’s been many years since Dwayne Johnson began talking about playing the DC Comics character, Black Adam. In 2019, the actor shared his first look in and as Black Adam, along with its release date, which was later postponed. Black Adam is a fictional superhero character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Black Adam has been in the pipeline for a long time. Dwayne was cast as the DC villain in 2007, but with 2017's Shazam being a big hit, production reportedly sped up on The Rock's spin-off.
