Last week, in the Warner Bros. Pictures Presentation in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, Dwayne Johnson appeared in-costume as Black Adam, rising above the crowd as he addressed the fans!
The panel included stars Aldis Hodge (Hawkman), Noah Centineo (Atom Smasher), and Quintessa Swindell (Cyclone), with director Jaume Collet-Serra.
After literally lighting up the Hall, Johnson gave every fan in the crowd the opportunity to see “Black Adam” in IMAX for free via Fandango when it hits theaters on October 21st.
The presentation also debuted never-before-seen footage from the upcoming film, and we’re excited to share a portion of that Hall H footage below:
THE WORLD NEEDED A HERO AND IT GOT BLACK ADAM
Unconventional, uncompromising, fueled by the depths of his pain to avenge his family…
Only the Justice Society can stop him, but only Black Adam can save the world.
From New Line Cinema, Dwayne Johnson stars in the action-adventure “Black Adam.” The first-ever feature film to explore the story of the DC Super Hero comes to the big screen under the direction of Jaume Collet-Serra (“Jungle Cruise”).
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.
Johnson stars alongside Aldis Hodge (“City on a Hill,” “One Night in Miami”) as Hawkman, Noah Centineo (“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”) as Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi (“Sex/Life,” “Rush Hour 3”) as Adrianna, Marwan Kenzari (“Murder on the Orient Express,” “The Mummy”) as Ishmael, Quintessa Swindell (“Voyagers,” “Trinkets”) as Cyclone, Bodhi Sabongui (“A Million Little Things”) as Amon, and Pierce Brosnan (the “Mamma Mia!” and James Bond franchises) as Dr. Fate.
Collet-Serra directed from a screenplay by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, screen story by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, based on characters from DC. Black Adam was created by Bill Parker and C.C. Beck. The film’s producers were Beau Flynn, Dwayne Johnson, Hiram Garcia, and Dany Garcia, with Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter, Chris Pan, Eric McLeod, Geoff Johns, and Scott Sheldon.
“Black Adam” smashes into theaters and IMAX internationally beginning on 19 October 2022 and in North America on October 21, 2022. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. Credits not final/subject to change.
