We’re nonetheless a great distance off from something near a correct trailer for “Black Adam” — COVID-19 has in any case delayed filming on a ton of films. But on Saturday throughout DC FanDome Dwayne Johnson gave followers the subsequent neatest thing courtesy of a pair of sizzle reels utilizing idea artwork wherein he defined the movie’s core ideas and characters.
“I’ve been waiting for this moment for a very long time,” mentioned Johnson initially of the “Black Adam” FanDome panel. “This is the one. This is the one that’s going to change everything. This is Black Adam.” Big phrases, and we’ll have to attend fairly some time to see if the movie lives as much as them — December, 2021 — however primarily based on what The Rock confirmed off Saturday, audiences are a minimum of in for a spectacle.
Johnson defined that the movie begins 5,000 years prior to now, as we be taught that Black Adam was a member of a robust historic civilization that fell below conquest and slavery. “My people needed a hero. They got me,” he says, and we see him buying his energy in a lot the identical method Billy Batson did in 2019’s “Shazam!”
Now Speaking of, Black Adam is certainly one of Shazam’s biggest enemies, however Johnson didn’t present up as Black Adam in David F. Sandberg’s “Shazam!” final yr. The rationalization on the time was that each characters required their very own introduction in separate movies. However, his coming was clearly signaled early on, when the Wizard tells Billy Batson tells the story of a champion he had chosen hundreds of years earlier. In the story, that hero shortly turned a power for evil and destruction as an alternative of fine, and visuals make it clear that earlier champion was Black Adam.
Johnson’s FanDome presentation fleshes that out a bit. We see that Black Adam turns into a champion for his enslaved folks however as Johnson explains, his model of justice was too merciless, too extreme, and too harmful for the wizards who gave their energy to him, and he was imprisoned, seemingly eternally.
But 5,000 years later, he escapes his cage and returns to the world, intent on settling scores, righting perceived wrongs in his usually uncompromising strategies, and doing issues “my way.” But it’s not all clean crusing as a result of he’s opposed by a coalition of Heroes often known as The Justice Society — Dr. Fate, Cyclone, Atom Smasher and Hawkman. Of course, Black Adam guarantees he’s going to kick their asses.
The video hasn’t been launched, however see some display screen pictures from it beneath.
