Today is DC FanDome! During the two-day event, there will be many trailers and teasers released for upcoming anxiously awaited DC films, including for Black Adam.
Black Adam will see Dwayne Johnson (Ballers) as Black Adam and Noah Centineo (To All the Boys) as Albert Rothstein, also known as Atom Smasher, the hero with the capabilities to alter his molecular structure. You can now watch first teaser below that gives a small taste of what fans can expect. It includes concept art created by artist BossLogic.
Otto Binder and C. C. Beck created the fictional character of Black Adam as an enemy of Shazam and the Marvel family. The dark side of the Shazam, if you will. Like Shazam, his powers come from saying the word “Shazam.” By saying that, he gets specific abilities like “the stamina of Shu, the swiftness of Heru (Horus), the strength of Amon, the wisdom of Zehuti (Thoth), the power of Aton, and the courage of Mehen. He does not draw powers from Shazam due to the demoness Blaze making a deal with the Egyptian god Set.”
Black Adam is set to be released December 22, 2021
