The new video reveals a silhouette of Dwayne Johnson standing in what looks to be the ruins of a darkened, ancient building. Interestingly, the actor appeared in his normal, civilian clothing rather than in a superhero costume. If the footage is from the actual movie instead of test photography, it means the amazingly long-lived character of Black Adam will meet the modern world at some point in the movie. The film arrives in theaters Dec. 22, 2021.
Dwayne Johnson has been attached to Black Adam for years, it was only newly that he authenticated his official involvement. “Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero. Having cool superpowers, fighting for what’s right, and always protecting the people,” he said in his announcement. He continued, “It all turned for me when I was 10 years old and was first presented to the greatest superhero of all time – SUPERMAN. As a kid, Superman was the hero I always wanted to be.” However, Johnson was “Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority,” which led him on another path and eventually brought him to Black Adam.
