The summer season may be over, but that doesn’t mean 2022 will be done handing out blockbusters – including one that was originally slated to air in a few months. After a little further delay, Jaume Collet-Serra black adam is almost here, and as we see in the latest trailer for the film, it’s not just Dwayne Johnson’s show. This new spot directly shines a spotlight on the first big-screen version of the Justice Society, and in doing so, it features a first look at the demonic villain Sabbac.
Monitoring of Black Adam preview shown at San Diego Comic-Con, this new spot begins by focusing on the titular character of Dwayne Johnson – who recounts how his son was sacrificed for him – but after that the perspective definitely shifts to Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell) and Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo). Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller Returns After Supporting Role in James Gunn The Suicide Squad last year, recruiting against the threat of Black Adam, and the Justice Society prepares for the task.
This will be the first time the Justice Society hits the big screen, and the delay is somewhat ironic considering it was the first superhero team together in comic books. We get a long look at each of their power sets in this preview, with Hawkman wielding his mace, Dr. Fate showing off magic skills, and Cyclone spinning up a storm being the highlights. The members’ one-on-one relationships with Black Adam are interesting, as they certainly seem more focused on recruiting to the side of good than defeating and overpowering him – but we’ll go on and guess they won’t have the same kind of back and forth with Sabbac.
Played by Marwan Kenzari, Sabbac is a villain who dates back to the Captain Marvel, Jr. 1940s comics, though the character was modernized by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank in DC’s New 52 reboot. He’s often featured as an ally of Black Adam, so it’ll be interesting to see what kind of treatment he receives in the story.
Also starring Sarah Shahi and Mo Amer (star of the critically acclaimed Netflix series month), black adam looks cooler and more exciting than ever in this new trailer, and the movie’s release date is right around the corner. Look for the new Dwayne Johnson movie in theaters everywhere on October 21.
