In case you missed the Black Adam presentation from DC FanDome this weekend, the teaser preview that was shared has now been released online for you to watch. The preview is loaded with concept art that was created by BossLogic and it features Dwayne Johnson narrating the story that tells the origin of how Teth-Adam rose to free his nation, Kahndaq, from oppression by becoming Black Adam.
During the Black Adam panel, Johnson explained that his character isn’t your typical DC Comics hero, saying:
“There are many variations and iterations of Black Adam that we have all fallen in love with over the years, and what I can promise you is a Black Adam that I feel in my heart is the right one to root our story in the beginning, this origin story. This is a character that will possess all the qualities that we have loved, regardless of what variation of Black Adam you’ve loved.”
Johnson went on to describe the character as a “ruthless keeper of justice.” He also said, “He is the judge, the jury, and the executioner, and he believes in an eye for an eye. He will always do everything he can to protect his people, more so protect his family.”
Black Adam will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (The Shallows) and it also stars Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher. The movie will also feature The Justice Society of America which also includes Hawk Man, Dr. Fate, and Cyclone. You can watch the character reveals here.
