Dwange Johnson’s new movie Black Adam has just hit the internet with teaser so as the movie stands just a month away from its release the new promotional material is making fans more excited to rush towards the theaters. The movie is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a screenplay by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab Noshirvani. Along with Johnson and Davis, the movie also casts Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Marwan Kenzari as Sabbac, and Sarah Shahai as Isis, among others.
A new clip revealed by Johnson on Twitter addresses the Justice League and Birds of Prey characters in relation to the next super set to enter the DCEU. The minute-long clip starts with a shot of Batman’s Batarang that Ben Affleck used during his stint, it further moves to a shot of the Superman symbol on Henry Cavill’s suit. We then see quick shots of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.
The rest of the video establishes Adam’s 5000-year-old origin, powers born out of rage, stubborn nature, and his only options: either to be the destroyer of the world or to be its savior. While most of the things we already knew, Waller’s words effectively establish the fact that Black Adam’s story is set before the advent of the Justice League in the DCEU. Interestingly, in another recent clip Adam declares, “there’s no one on this planet that can stop me,” which made fans wonder about a certain Earth-dwelling Kryptonian who can go against the anti-hero intending to change the hierarchy of the DCEU. What remains to be seen is how far back Black Adam’s tale is set chronologically, in order to understand, whether any Justice League characters could ever appear in the anti-hero’s tale.
