It again confirms that Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone will be the anti-hero’s main antagonists in the film.
“In ancient Kahndaq, Teth Adam was bestowed the almighty powers of the gods. After using these powers for vengeance, he was imprisoned, becoming Black Adam. Nearly 5,000 years have passed and Black Adam has gone from man, to myth, to legend. Now released, his unique form of justice, born out of rage, is challenged by modern day heroes who form the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone,” the synopsis reads.
You can check out the character posters below:
The first trailer for the film dropped in early June, with a full reveal coming later on in July at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con 2022 — where Johnson introduced the panel by donning his iconic Black Adam suit in all its thunderous glory.
A trailer for the film also dropped then, which you can check out here.
This has long been a passion project for Johnson, who’s said to have dreamed of playing the character for years, and he was as excited to show off the film during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con 2022.
“The journey for Black Adam, it has been a long journey, fueled with passion, with commitment, with grit,” he said. “It’s been easily over 10 years. The journey has been an incredible one. I love coming to Comic-Con. To be here in Hall H, representing a DC anti-hero is a dream come true. The dream, having been in the business for years now, I’d bring movies here and hope you guys would like them but this is a dream come true.”
Black Adam is slated for release on October 21st; for our full trailer breakdown and analysis, stick to IGN!
