8 New High-Quality Images From Black Adam Are Released

Dwayne Johnson has been trying to get Black Adam off of the ground since 2008, and now it looks like the movie is finally going to happen. It's taken a while, but it's finally happening. Initially, it was supposed to be a team-up or a versus type of movie with Shazam! since the two are usually adversaries or at least part of each other's stories. Johnson, however, thought there was enough for a solo movie for Black Adam, so that is what we're getting in October. At least, for now, who knows what will happen in the next couple of months. If 2020 taught us anything, things could change quickly. For now, we finally got a trailer that gives us a better idea of what kind of movie we're in for, and this is going to be very different from Shazam, whose sequel is coming out a couple of months after this movie. Johnson has been known to pull in audiences, and it's going to be interesting to see if he can bring in people for this one. We have eight new high-quality images after the release of the first trailer today.

So far, the reactions on social media for this trailer are looking pretty positive overall, so there is at least some interest from the public on Twitter. However, Twitter is a really bad way of judging an audience and whether or not they are going to show up to a movie. If we could rely on tweets for films to make money, Sony wouldn't have let Morbius bomb twice in theaters because it became a meme for a hot minute. As for Black Adam, it has a pretty prime release date, but that is a busy time of year. It's going to have to be good to carve out space for itself with a flooded fall market.

Summary: Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the Egyptian 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.

Black Adam, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, stars Dwayne Johnson, Noah Centineo, Aldis Hodge, Quintessa Swindell, Marwan Kenzari, Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Shahi, James Cusati-Moyer, and Bodhi Sabongui. It will be released on October 21, 2022.
