Black Adam has been one of the hyped DC projects in recent memory. The film first began to tease back in 2014, after Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel was released. While back then DCEU had no idea of the critical polarities they were to face, Black Adam was a simple project back then.
Things have immensely changed now. With the theatrical cut of Justice League being deemed a critical mess and actors speaking out against Warner Bros., DCEU has completely revamped its approach. With Shazam & The Suicide Squad being recently successful DCEU projects, we’re yet to know the direction they’ll take with Black Adam.
Dwayne The Rock Johnson has been teasing Black Adam since 2014. He took to Twitter back in 2014 to let fans know that he’ll be playing the DC anti-hero, and the plan has finally come into fruition.
The People’s Champion tweeted out to tease Black Adam in epic fashion and he had a great tweet to match: “Kneel at his feet or get crushed by his boot. My honor to become..”
Johnson revealed the teaser trailer to kick-off DC Fandome, the virtual event for all things DC entertainment. The upcoming flick will also include DC superheroes from the Justice Society such as Hawkman, Atom Smasher, Cyclone and the much-awaited appearance of Doctor Fate.
