The 2022 NFL regular season officially began Thursday night with the Los Angeles Rams-Buffalo Bills game at SoFi Stadium, where Dwayne Johnson touched down (pun intended) to unveil the new Black Adam video. The new trailer for the DC movie was also shown during Thursday Night Football on NBC.
After bringing Black Adam to San Diego Comic-Con in July, where he looked to hover above the 6,500-strong Hall H crowd, Johnson is stepping up promotional duties as the movie is just over a month away from its Oct. 21 release date.
Johnson has spent more than ten years working on Black Adam, his first excursion into the superhero genre. Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), and Dr. Fate are among the heroes that appear in it (Pierce Brosnan).

Johnson portrays Black Adam, an antihero with ancient powers who has been around for thousands of years. Jaume Collet-Serra, who oversaw Johnson's Jungle Cruise, is in charge of the film's direction. Warner Bros. and New Line will release Black Adam, with Shazam! Fury of the Gods coming out in March of the following year.
A new trailer for Black Adam, the Dwayne Johnson-starring DC universe film, has been released by Warner Bros. You'll remember a lot of this video if you watched the trailer from back in July; while Black Adam argues that he is a villain, there are some signs that he will ultimately have to decide to be a decent man.
I'll be honest: I don't really know much about the character of Black Adam. For further background information, please see my colleague Charles Pulliam-piece Moore's about the July trailer. Other DC characters like Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Dr. Fate (Pierce Brosnan), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), and Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo) will also appear in the film; this, however, may not be the only time we see them or their Justice Society superhero team, which has existed for a lot longer than the Justice League. Johnson claims in a tweet that Black Adam marks the start of "a new era in the DC Universe."
