A trailer for Black Adam has surfaced, bringing us one step closer to seeing the film in theatres. However, it hasn’t yet been made available to everyone. Even yet, we’re looking forwards to seeing Dwayne Johnson take on a role that’s both more strong and more rowdy than his own wrestling image in the next film. As Black Adam, a mystical creature with 5,000-year-old beginnings, Teth-Adam (Black Adam) emerges in the present day to take on the Justice League’s predecessors.

But when will the Black Adam movie be released? The question is, just how much of an anti-hero will he prove to be. To make sense of it all, we’re sifting through decades of comics history and current news events. Check out the latest look at DJ as Black Adam in the gallery below!


Black Adam, as Johnson has hinted, will not be a benevolent character. An anti-superhero theme runs through the film’s plot, which begins with his roots in the distant past and eventually moves closer to the current day.

Johnson posted about Black Adam on social media “Blessed by magic, he has superhuman abilities, but he doesn’t follow the rules. When it comes to doing good for the people, he’s a defiant one-of-a-kind superhero who always does it his way.”

Date of release for the film Black Adam

In 2022, on the 29th of July, a film titled Black Adam will be released. There was a lengthy period of time without any release dates for this game. In November 2019, Johnson announced a Dec. 22, 2021 release date. Taking over the Times Square billboards and posting a video of the event, Johnson announced the news on social media.


In the wake of the COVID-19 epidemic, the Black Adam movie’s release date was thrown into a frenzy of postponements. Now, it looks like Black Adam’s producers are holding off on announcing a new release date until all the issues have been ironed out.

The Black Adam movie trailer news, including the teaser trailer and snippets

Dwayne Johnson debuted a new teaser for Black Adam at CinemaCon 2022, an annual gathering of cinema owners. Starting with Pierce Brosnan’s character, Dr. Fate, Brosnan’s character asks a series of questions “You’ve been granted a lot of abilities, Black Adam. Love but sorrow?”

After that, we witness Black Adam “destroying helicopters and coming into touch with what seems like mercenaries” before he boasts of being “reborn a god” after being “born a slave.” Black Adam then succeeds in catching a rocket. As Black Adam is challenged by Hawkman, Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman declares that “heroes don’t murder people,” to which Black Adam answers by stating “Well, I do.”


During DC Fandome 2021, we were given a glimpse of Dwayne in the Black Adam armour in a new teaser video. In addition, we got to meet the rest of his cast. A man’s head was burnt to ashes in the real film.

Rather than a polished film, the first Black Adam movie trailer seems more like a sequence of animated drawings. The reason for this is because the only thing we’ve seen so far is the teaser trailer DC released at their Fandom event (essentially the comic publisher’s own online Comic-Con). It introduces us to Teth-Adam, a 5,000-year-old prisoner of Kahndaq, a mythical African nation situated near Egypt and Jordan. ‘Now,’ he tells us, he’s finally free.

Dr. Fate’s casting in Black Adam has been announced.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news earlier this week that Pierce Brosnan will join the cast of Black Adam as Doctor Fate. There is little doubt that Doctor Fate, a founding member of the JSA, will be one of Black Adam’s main adversaries.


The cast of Black Adam

Dwayne Johnson was cast in the role of Black Adam in September 2014, and the film’s early beginnings stretch back to that time. In July, Noah Centineo was cast as Atom Smasher, a member of the Justice Society of America. In September, Aldis Hodge was cast as Hawkman, while Quintessa Swindell was cast as Cyclone in December to complete the JSA’s roster. Pierce Brosnan, as previously mentioned, agreed to join in March 2021.

There is a whole cast of characters that has been announced:

  • Dwayne Johnson as  Teth-Adam | Black Adam
  • Pierce Brosnan as Kent Nelson | Doctor Fate
  • Aldis Hodge as Carter Hall | Hawkman
  • Quintessa Swindell as Maxine Hunkell |Cyclone
  • Noah Centineo as Al Rothstein | Atom Smasher
  • Sarah Shahi in a TBA role
  • Marwan Kenzari in a TBA role
