Before the trailer’s release, a new image of Rock’s anti-hero, Black Adam, is released.

Dwayne Johnson has shared a new peek at his Black Adam character ahead of the trailer debut. Black Adam is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Jungle Cruise) and stars Johnson as the titular anti-hero/villain with Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Sarah Shahi as Isis. The film is currently undergoing reshoots to hit its October 21, 2022 release date after a number of delays due to the pandemic.Black Adam marks Johnson’s first foray into the superhero genre, which has been a long time coming for the actor. The character is typically known as a villain, his origin being a corrupted Egyptian predecessor to Captain Marvel aka Shazam!, having similar powers that are derived from ancient Egyptian gods.The character has been reinvented throughout the years to be more of an anti-hero than villain, teaming up with other DC superheroes, particularly the JSA, while simultaneously remaining as a character out for himself.Johnson revealed a new image of his incarnation of Black Adam, showing off his costumed superhero looking strong and angry in what appears to be a clipped portion of a larger image. The actor once again confirmed the release of the new trailer alongside the image, which is set for June 8. Johnson has shared a number of Black Adam BTS images from reshoots of late, hyping the trailer, as well as the film itself, which will be a big swing for the actor. Take a look at the new image below:

Johnson’s last feature was Red Notice with Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, which broke a number of records for Netflix and helped keep his momentum up as he worked toward the release of Black Adam. While the actor won’t have a big summer movie out in 2022 (as he usually does) due to Black Adam’s delay, he will be voicing Krypto in the animated DC League of Super-Pets movie, which drops on Black Adam’s original release date of July 29.Johnson’s next project after Black Adam will be the mysterious Prime Video original film Red One, keeping with the color scheme titles, which will co-star Chris Evans and is to be directed by Jumanji’s Jake Kasdan.The hype has continued to build for Black Adam, and Johnson clearly knows how to play that game to keep fans interested. While some footage of Black Adam has been teased thus far, a full trailer has yet to be revealed for the film, which has the potential to tip the scales in a big way if it’s well-received. Most DC and Johnson fans wouldn’t miss Black Adam, but there’s still a large chunk of moviegoers who have no idea who the character is, so unleashing a trailer while audiences are heading back to theaters this summer is a smart move to keep that hype train moving into the fall when it finally debuts.
