At DC FanDome, Dwayne Johnson presented the first look of his character being introduced for the upcoming film Black Adam.
Black Adam originated in DC Comics as a corrupted, ancient Egyptian predecessor of Captain Marvel/Shazam, who fought his way to modern times to challenge the hero and the Shazam Family. In recent times in the comics however, Black Adam has evolved into a more complex and conflicted antihero, with his origins tied to the fictional Middle Eastern kingdom of Kahndaq.
The film is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, with the most recent script written by Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani, with the previous written by Adam Sztykiel, and the film stars Dwayne Johnson, Noah Centineo, Aldis Hodge, Sarah Shahi, Quintessa Swindell, Marwan Kenzari, Pierce Brosnan, James Cusati-Moyer, Bodhi Sabongui, Mo Amer and Uli Latukedu.
Black Adam is currently scheduled for cinematic release on the 29th July 2022.
