A teaser for Black Adam was released during the DC Fandome event. The teaser does not contain any live-action footage and is a montage of beautiful artwork that pieces together the backstory of Dwayne Johnson’s anti-hero who will eventually face Zachary Levi’s Shazam.

But before appearing in a Shazam movie, Dwayne Johnson is going to be headlining his own movie. The teaser of the film reveals the way Black Adam, a native of a fictional country in DC Comics called Khandaq, was kept as a slave. He acquired the powers of Shazam but not as a hero.

As Dwayne Johnson puts it in the voice-overs, “Khandaq needed a hero. Instead, they got me.”

After he was being imprisoned, for presumably using his super powers for nefarious purposes, for 5000 years, Black Adam is now free and loose in the world.

In the New 52 biography of DC Comics, there was a boy named Aman, an inhabitant of the fictional Arab country called Kahndaq. He was thrown into slavery at a young age. His uncle called Adam who helped Aman escape his slavery but got injured. Similar to Billy Batson, Aman was transported to the Rock of Eternity and given superpowers. To heal Adam, Aman shared his powers with his uncle. While Aman wanted to liberate the slave masters from their evil souls, Adam was looking for vengeance.

It is not clear if the movie will stick close to the lore.

Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam was previously supposed to appear in Zachary Levi starrer Shazam! The film was decided to launch Black Adam in a solo movie instead to give him space to develop more.

Black Adam is being directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (who is directing Johnson in Jungle Cruise as well).

The upcoming film is scheduled to be released on December 22, 2021.
