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.
San Diego Comic-Con was a great experience for Black Adam fans courtesy of Dwayne Johnson.
As he ascended from the stage floor of Hall H to make his entrance at San Diego Comic-Con, Johnson in full Black Adam costume made a grand entrance into the event. On the screen behind him, lightning bolts appeared behind him as he emerged, and smoke poured out of his nostrils as he emerged from the building. In the darkened hall, the lightning bolt lanyards that had been given out before the panel were flashing brightly as everyone in the audience received them, making a spectacular display during the panel.
As part of the Warner Bros. presentation, the movie star also unveiled the newest trailer for his upcoming superhero adventure. Like Shazam, Black Adam is also given powerful magical abilities as a result of his relationship with the wizard Shazam. The only difference between Black Adam and Shazam is that instead of calling upon the Greek gods for his power, Black Adam calls upon the Egyptian gods.
As part of the new film, the antihero will be followed almost 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the powers of the Egyptian gods, and about how he came to gain these powers. In the wake of being released from his tomb, Black Adam is now ready to unleash his form of justice on the modern community.
As the Justice Society of America makes its debut in the DC Universe, “Black Adam” features Johnson as its title character and a host of new characters. As one of the first superhero teams ever to appear in the DC comics, the Justice Society was co-founded by Asdis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate.
In addition to Johnson, a few cast members and director Jaume Colllet-Serra were on stage with him to tease that the DC Universe will forever be changed by “Black Adam.” Members of the audience also had the opportunity to ask the panelists their questions, including which of the two characters would win in a fight between Black Adam and Superman.
In addition, every fan that attended the Hall H panel, received a ticket to see the film later this year. “Black Adam” hits theaters on Oct. 21.
