‘Black Adam’ drops new trailer featuring ‘Suicide Squad’ villain


Another official Black Adam trailer burst out of the gates Thursday. Star Dwayne Johnson dropped the new footage on Twitter before it hit Warner Bros.’ social.

This second trailer is arguably the best yet, giving the DC anti-hero more of a true villain. Doctor Fate, played by Pierce Brosnan, looks set to lead an X-Men-esque team of heroes — including Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo) and Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell) — in taking down Black Adam. They are known as the Justice Society of America.

The trailer also features DC’s very own Nick Fury: Amanda Waller (Viola Davis). You can see her exactly 49 seconds in.

Davis last appeared in the DC Universe’s Peacemakera spinoff series from the 2021s The Suicide Squad. The ruthless intelligence officer and leader of Task Force X, aka Suicide Squad, is more of an antagonist than Marvel’s Nick Fury, happy to execute anyone who defies her orders. Like Samuel L. Jackson’s character, the driving force behind the creation of The Avengers, Davis has appeared in several films.

Black Adam follows the anti-hero after he is released from a 5,000-year prison. The Justice Society of America gathers to stop his rampage and teach him to be more hero than villain before teaming up to tackle an even stronger force.

Black Adam is scheduled to hit theaters on October 21.
