Several years after the project was announced, Black Adam is finally heading to theaters this year and fans have been looking forward to seeing Dwayne Johnson's foray into the DCEU as he will play a beloved character in the comics who is also one of the most powerful heroes in the DC Universe. After months of getting sneak peeks, we finally have our first full look at the upcoming film.
Warner Bros. has dropped the action-packed first trailer for Black Adam. The two-minute footage gave us a glimpse at the titular hero's origins, his transformation into the hero, his encounter with the Justice Society of America, and showcases his powers like in one moment when he easily destroyed a fighter jet with just one punch showing that the hierarchy of power in the DCEU is indeed changing.

Based on the trailer, it looks like the film is going to deliver what Johnson has been hyping for years regarding the character's powers and the extent of what his powers can do as he keeps on emphasizing that the hierarchy of power will change with Black Adam's arrival in the DCEU. However, they didn't give us an idea about the story yet which they might address in another trailer although they did show a lot of action sequences which should be enough for fans to be excited.
The film's logline reads: "Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the Egyptian 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."
Besides Johnson, the cast also includes Pierce Brosnan, Noah Centineo, Aldis Hodge, Quintessa Swindell, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, and Bodhi Sabongui. Jaume Collet-Serra directed the film from a screenplay by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab Noshirvani.
Black Adam is set to be released in theaters on October 21.
