One More Booming Trailer for Dwayne Johnson's 'Black Adam' Movie
"We're here to negotiate your peaceful surrender." "I'm not peaceful, nor do I surrender." Warner Bros has revealed the second official trailer for the Black Adam movie, a Shazam series spin-off focusing on the origins of this DC Comics' anti-hero. This epic final trailer takes out all the humor from the last trailer, and overloads on flashy superhero VFX and explosive action. Dwayne Johnson stars as Black Adam, an anti-hero from Kahndaq who was imprisoned for 5,000 years after he gained God-like powers. He will become the archenemy of the superhero Shazam, also seen in another movie, and shares his powers from the ancient wizard of the same name. Other DC characters, including the Justice Society of America (JSA), appear in this movie trying to take him down. The cast includes Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Sarah Shahi, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate with his golden helmet, Marwan Kenzari and Bodhi Sabongui. This does finally look like it might be a solid anti-hero movie - balancing the team of "good guys" versus the intensity of Black Adam not taking shit from anyone.
