The Flash and Aquaman 2 may have been pushed to next year, but the Rock’s Black Adam will make his big screen debut later this Halloween season. A new trailer is expected to drop this Wednesday, and we have a new promo poster coming with the announcement.

From left to right we have Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson), Dr. Fate (Pierce Brosan), and Atom Smasher (Centineo). Fans are still holding out for an appearance from Shazam Zachary Levi, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens in the film.
With Adam known mostly for being a villain in the comics, I’m curious how the movie will approach the character, seeing that the Rock usually plays the ‘muscle-bound good guy’. Though I expect the Rock to change the character up a bit per his usual roles, I’m hoping that he embraces the part of an antihero this time around. I mean, not every character has to be as quippy and lighthearted as a Marvel hero.
Change things up, Johnson! (please).
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 hits theaters on Oct. 21.
