“The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change…”
ICYMI, DC Comics is holding their yearly fan event — DC FanDome — this weekend, and, as a result, fans are being blessed with all kinds of awesome new content!
Still, one of the coolest things to come out of the event (so far) was our first official look at Dwayne “The Scorpion King of My Heart” Johnson in the highly-anticipated movie, Black Adam. When I say “y’all aren’t ready,” I mean it this time. Just watch:
For those not in the know, Black Adam is a supervillain, most often seen in the comics as the archnemesis of Captain Marvel (no, not THAT one, the Shazam! one).
The exclusive clip begins by showing off some key art, setting up the massive world in which the movie takes place:
Then, we get a few quick introductions to our cast of characters, including some familiar faces! We have Noah Centineo as “Atom Smasher”:
Aldis Hodge as “Hawkman”:
Quintessa Swindell as “Cyclone”:
And Pierce Brosnan as “Doctor Fate”:
After that, we get a lil’ sneaky-peeky at Dwayne all geared up and ready to go as the iconic supervillain before he introduces a short teaser clip from the film itself!
WHEW Y’ALL, this clip — while only about a minute long — is already promising! Basically, we see a group of people who’ve clearly never seen a horror film in their lives reading from an ancient-looking stone, before summoning our titular main man:
And he does not seem very excited to be there, which…relatable. He immediately turns one guy to dust:
Then, he proceeds to catch a bullet like it’s nothing. For real, Ozymandias WHO?!
So, there ya have it! What’d you think of our first look at Black Adam? Share all of your thoughts in the comments below!
