Warner Bros: Black Adam

This October, there is a brand new DC superhero in town! Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson plays the super-being, an all-powerful demi-god whose destructive abilities threaten all. The Warner Bros movie is the latest instalment in the ongoing DC Extended Universe and as Warner Bros is within our licencing portfolio, we thought we would give you the run down on all things Black Adam.

What is the story of Black Adam?

Black Adam centres around the superhero, an anti-heroic force of nature who must learn to use his powers for the greater good. Hailing from the ancient city of Kahndaq, Black Adam has been imprisoned for many thousands of years following the elimination of his family.
Newly released and re-born as a force of vengeance, Black Adam must learn to harness his abilities to stop a threat even greater than he is.

Where does Black Adam fit in the DC Extended Universe?

That remains to be seen. At the moment, the ongoing DC movies are operating largely independently of one another.
What we do know is that Johnson’s character was meant to appear at the end of 2019’s spirited and entertaining DC adventure Shazam! The latter film’s title character, a teenage boy encased in an adult superhero’s body, is the sworn nemesis of Black Adam. It was assumed that a climactic teaser would set up an ongoing cinematic conflict.

Will Black Adam introduce the Justice Society of America?

Yes, the Justice Society of America will make its cinematic debut in Black Adam. The Justice Society of America has encompassed numerous members. For the purposes of the Black Adam movie, it’s largely the original comic book ensemble who will be present. These are the high-flying Hawkman, the de facto leader of the group, the matter-redefining Atom Smasher and the sage sorcerer Doctor Fate. Although she wasn’t a part of the original comics line-up, we can also expect to see the sound-generating Cyclone in the film.

When is the film going to be released?

It’s set to be released on October 21, 2022.

Is there a trailer?
