In anticipation for fans around the world waiting for the screening of Black Adam (releasing on October 21st), Warner Bros. Pictures dropped a new trailer this week showing the expanded world of Black Adam and DC’s ever expanding multiverse. They revealed characters such as Hawkman, Dr, Fate, Atom Smasher, Cyclone and more. Black Adam has been a passion project for the star and producer Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson for over a decade.

Ever since it was announced at DC Fandome in 2020, the anticipation has been exciting for all involved in the project, from fans to the cast.
During recent press for the film, Dwayne Johnson said:
“It’s not hyperbole – he is blessed with these powers that are so unique and awesome, he has the ability to change the hierarchy of power in the DC universe.”
