DC has officially launched the trailer for director Jaume Collet-Serra’s Black Adam starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the protagonist. The latest full trailer gives fans a brief look at the plot, characters, and electrifying scenes of action. Here’s a breakdown of the trailer.

Rock as Black Adam

The Justice Society of America will rise this fall to fight Black Adam who has risen once again after ages due to his son’s powers. The antihero is now on a rampage demolishing everyone and everything coming his way. He ultimately gets a choice to be “a Destroyer or a Savior.”

Black Adam’s history with DC dates back to 1945 when he originally played a villain fighting against Shazam. However, he’s now getting his full movie where he’ll be fighting Hawkman, Doctor Fate, and other members of the JSA who’re trying to stop him.

Black Adam First Full Trailer Reveals Dwayne Johnson’s Anti-Hero

After multiple delays, Black Adam is going to be in the theaters this fall. For now, DC has launched the first full trailer for the movie after previously providing only sneak peeks of Black Adam.

Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient 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,” the Synopsis reads.

You can watch the Black Adam Official Trailer 1 below:

The trailer starts showing Black Adam a.k.a Teth-Adam’s backstory from 5,000 years ago. He was a man born into enslavement in Kahndaq, which is a fictional country. Teth-Adam dies by the hand of his enslavers, however, his son brings him back to life.

He’s “reborn as a god” by a magical bolt of lightning apparently called down by his son shortly before he dies from the excessive strain of the ritual to revive his father. Teth-Adam’s son’s death in the past radicalized him and he becomes a destructor using his newfound powers to seek a kind of justice. This makes the people around him forced to lock him away.

The trailer then switches to introduce the Justice Society of America (JSA) with a new lineup featuring Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate.

Black Adam and Hawkman

The JSA is fighting Black Adam who’s violently destroying the city and its surroundings. When Hawkman, the golden warrior, says “Heroes don’t kill people,” Black Adam replies, “Well I do,” neatly staying within his anti-hero persona.

Black Adam Gets a Choice to be a Destroyer or a Savior

Later in the trailer, Doctor Fate says, “My vision has shown me the future” and offers Black Adam two choices- either be a Destroyer of this world or be a Savior. The AntiHero will have a choice to make in the movie.

The trailer ends with Black Adam catching a freaking rocket that jolted toward him with almost the speed of light. As the rocket blasts, the screen gets covered with dust and smoke and we see Black Adam’s palm, before cutting to the release date.
