Black Adam already have here the new for Black Adam! The DC Comics movie starring The Rock is moving towards its premiere and promotion is increasing considerably week after week. Clips, promotional images, posters and now a new exclusive preview. The project commanded by Jaume Collet-Serra could not have looked better and spirits are through the roof.
Black Adam at Warner Bros. Discovery they trust that this film will be the tape of the DC Extended Universe that hits the table. The actor himself believes that it will be the 'rosetta stone' of the DCEU. And the truth is that it could not look better.
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and with a joint script by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani, Black Adam is postulated as one of the great surprises of DC Comics on the big screen. It is a project that The Rock has been fighting to bring to light for almost a decade. Eight hard years in which pre-production got stuck with the internal messes of Warner Bros. Pictures and that, finally, it was the actor himself who got ahead with his company Seven Bucks Productions. He is joined in the cast by Sarah Shahi, Pierce Brosnan, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo and Chico Kenzari, among many others. There are even rumors that Henry Cavill's Superman will return at the end of this film.
While other DC movies have shifted their releases over the past week, Black Adam is still moving ahead with its planned release this coming October.
In that sense, in addition to testing marketing meetings for the film, Dwayne Johnson took the opportunity to reveal a new look at one of the film's heroes during the recent weekend.
Specifically, through a publication on social networks, "The Rock" shared a new promotional image that presents the version of Doctor Fate that will be played by Pierce Brosnan in the new DC movie.
In the Black Adam movie, Doctor Fate will be featured as part of a Justice Society lineup that will also include Cyclone, Hawkman, and Atom Smasher. In fact, this new image of Doctor Fate had already been previously anticipated in another photo revealed by Johnson that showed that team together with Black Adam.
This is the official synopsis of Black Adam, with The Rock as the main character. “Nearly 5,000 years after being endowed with the omnipotent powers of the ancient gods – and imprisoned just as quickly – Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson) is released from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the world. modern". The film opens on October 21.
Black Adam Ra's al Ghul is one of the most dangerous enemies Batman has faced throughout his history. A talented warrior and fighter, an anarchist leader of a revolutionary collective of assassins, and technically immortal. Ra's has been wreaking havoc as a member of Batman's rogues gallery for decades. In some ways, he's one of the biggest villains in the entire DC Universe, considering he's Damian Wayne's grandfather. In others, he has tried to destroy the world of "Detective" in every possible way. And in the cinema he became famous thanks to the performance of Liam Neeson in the famous trilogy of The Dark Knight by Christopher Nolan.
In the 2005 film Batman Begins, Neeson's Ra's al Ghul led the League of Shadows, a pseudo-revolutionary group that had brought several civilizations to their knees. After training a young Bruce Wayne in the art of Ninja, he sets his sights on Gotham. A decision that Batman obviously did not agree with. Ra's al Ghul terrorizing Gotham with his League of Shadows is nothing new to the comic book world. However, his origins and his motivations are much more insidious than they seem.
The film careers of Hollywood stars usually go through different stages, but almost all of them have something in common: when an actor or actress begins to star in feature films, it is usually a sign that villain characters have run out for them. As in any rule there are always exceptions but it is something that has been repeated since time immemorial and The Rock may be the latest example of it.
The actor who began in secondary roles, some of them in the evil side of the film, began to gain popularity with different protagonists that ended up becoming one of the highest-grossing action actors. Not to be pigeonholed, another common element of the Hollywood star-system, he also starred in family comedies with notable success. But after many years of work Dwayne Johnson, The Rock (The Rock), seems to have jumped to the next stage.
These are the great protagonists of memorable films that go down in history but as villains. We could not say (spoiler alert) that in Red Alert he manages to become a memorable villain, but the final plot-twist gives the action movie something of an entity and is a first step.
The beginning that has led him to the filming of Black Adam, a film focused on Shazam's archenemy within the DC Universe. This movie is already one of the most anticipated of 2022, under the production of Jaume Collet-Serra with the promise of drastically changing this franchise after the premiere on October 21 of this year.
Nearly 5,000 years after being granted the almighty powers of the ancient gods, and imprisoned just as quickly, Black Adam is released from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique way of meting out justice on the modern world. A justice that can be misunderstood and turn him into a different villain.
Dwayne Johnson plays the character, who has no qualms about killing his opponents. That slave who was reborn as a god now does not bow down to anyone -in his own words-, so his insubordination will get him into some trouble. Although nothing that someone with the powers that, if respected as in the vignettes, cannot come out of, is a global danger.
Black Adam actress Quintessa Swindell has offered some details about Cyclone's origin story that will be shown in the DC movie during an interview with Total Film. “Cyclone has the power to harness and manipulate the wind,” she commented. "Her powers of hers weren't something that she actually had within her, it was something that a scientist forced on her, so she also has this aspect of her where she can control nanobots, and she has that technology as well. The costume is like Vivienne Westwood is a superhero. She's very circus, very theatrical and very cool, and a little bit punk at the same time."
In a recent interview, Jaume Collet-Serra said that Black Adam will not follow the standard superhero origin story template. "It's not your typical superhero movie where a kid wants to be a superhero and gets the powers, and then you spend 50 minutes trying to figure out how the powers work," he said. "This is a movie where you introduce Black Adam right away, and then throughout the movie you slowly peel the onion and reveal what happened."
This approach was made possible through the efforts of Dwayne Johnson. The actor recently said that he "fought hard" from the start to convince Warner Bros. to drop their original plans to feature the character he plays and his nemesis Shazam in the same movie. Johnson explained that he believed that including both characters' origin stories in the same film would have done them both "a disservice", and felt that he needed to "protect the ruthless and extremely violent tone of Black Adam as we built the film.
Speaking with Total Film, Dwayne Johnson stated that "Black Adam's goal is really to expand the universe" of DC Studios. "We are already thinking about the future," said the actor. It seems, therefore, that there will be spin-off films of the DC Extended Universe derived from the new film franchise.
“The goal really is to expand the DC Studios universe and introduce new characters and different spin-offs. The idea is to be really strategic about the plan. We have some ideas of which characters people will respond to when they see Black Adam. So, we're already thinking about starting on different movies and how that movie might work for the audience."
Black Adam producer Hiram Garcia echoed these statements from Dwayne Johnson, admitting that they wanted to build as big a DC Studios universe as possible. He even talked about future film crossovers that we would have on the big screen.
“I think our ambition has always been for this whole thing to be a shared universe, you know? While Black Adam and Shazam may not intersect, they all exist under one big umbrella within DC Studios. And we want to be able to build the universe as big as we can. We have a lot of ambition. If everything is received in the way that we hope it will be received, we have opportunities to see possible crossovers.”
Also, as we reported yesterday, Dwayne Johnson's ambitions don't end with the DCEU or Black Adam. The actor recently acknowledged that he would like to do a crossover with Marvel Studios.
The official Black Adam Twitter account has released a new poster for the film and announced a new trailer that will premiere today, Thursday, September 8. We will publish it as soon as it is available, since it is possible that in territories such as Spain it will do so at night or even at dawn.
DC sent Reddit Black Adam out all of this information in a press release, which also contained character posters and an official synopsis for the film.
It is confirmed again that Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone will be the main antagonists of the antihero in the film.
"In ancient Kahndaq, Teth Adam was given the omnipotent powers of the gods. After using these powers to exact revenge, he was imprisoned, becoming Black Adam. Nearly 5,000 years have passed, and Black Adam has gone from man, to myth, to legend. Now freed, his unique form of justice, born of rage, is challenged by the modern heroes that make up the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher, and Cyclone," reads the synopsis.
The first Black Adam for the film dropped in early June, with the full reveal taking place later in July at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, where Johnson introduced the panel wearing his iconic Black Adam suit in full gear. splendor.
This has long been a passion project for Johnson, who is said to have dreamed of playing the character for years, and he was very excited to show the film during this year's San Diego Comic-Con 2022.
