The official poster of DC’s “Black Adam” has just been unveiled by Dwayne Johnson, drawing attention to members of the Justice Society of America. Due to the fact that the film is due to be released in theaters soon, Warner Bros. ramping up an advertising campaign for the upcoming DC Extended Universe movie. The poster is just a cursory look at the main actors, but the real show will take place tomorrow in the form of a new trailer.
On social media, Johnson showed the official poster of Black Adam, in which his titular character is front and center, and the members of the JSA appear in some kind of hierarchical order. “A new era in the DC universe has begun,” reads the caption, reminding fans of the importance of the upcoming film. But, more importantly, Johnson said that the new trailer for “Black Adam” will be released on Thursday, which was later confirmed by Warner Bros.
In addition to Tet-Adam Johnson, the poster depicts Pierce Brosnan’s Dr. Faith, Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman, Noah Sentineo’s Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell’s Cyclone and Sarah Shahi’s Adrianna Tomaz. To further raise the hype, each of the main characters also received their own stunning individual posters, which Warner Bros. I shared it on my Instagram account. Posters of the characters offered a new and closer look at the costumes each of them would wear in the highly anticipated DC movie.
“Black Adam” had to wait a long time before finally getting the green light for production and release. Presumably, Johnson was first selected for the role of the antihero back in 2007 and confirmed his casting much later, in 2014. Then it was expected that he would become part of “Shazam!” in 2019!, but the studio decided that the character would get his own separate film. Although production and release of the film was originally scheduled to be completed in 2021, the ongoing pandemic and the workload of the Black Adam visual effects team caused further delays. Fifteen years after Johnson first got into the project, the film will finally see the light of day.
“Black Adam” will be the first DC movie released after the massive news that Warner Bros. suddenly cancels the movie “Batgirl”. Since then, there have been some reshuffling of release dates and talk of restructuring the company, but it seems that the release of Black Adam has not been affected. The film is being promoted as a shift in the DCEU, revealing the company’s carefully thought-out plans to create a franchise similar to the Marvel cinematic universe. It remains to be seen whether the studio will be able to realize its grandiose plans. In the meantime, fans are waiting for a new trailer.
The premiere of “Black Adam” in theaters is scheduled for October 21, 2022.
