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 (Jungle Cruise).
Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods— and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.
This final trailer gives us a little back story about Teth’s foes, The Justice Society. They are brought in by… wait for it… Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) to stop Teth Adam when he awakes from a 5,000-year slumber. Why it’snot Task Force X is anyone’s guess. But apparently Hawkman, Doctor Fate, Cyclone and Atom Smasher answer to her.
The JSA seems to have rented Professor X’s house as their jet emerges from the front lawn. We get a little tease of Adam vs. Hawkman, Adam vs. Doctor Fate and Hawkman vs. the villainous Sabbac.
There is no sign of Henry Cavill’s Superman which is rumored to be a post-credits scene.
Watch the final trailer below:
