Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, “Black Adam” follows the story of the anti-hero of the same name, played by Dwayne Johnson.
The character of Black Adam first appeared in DC Comics in the 1940s as a power-corrupt villain, and slowly became an anti-hero by the 2000s, known for his disregard of rules and conventions.
The titular antihero’s story marks the first solo movie for this character, which will converge with that of the Justice Society of America.
It was revealed a week ago that actor Pierce Brosnan had been cast as JSA founding member Dr. Fate, A.K.A. Kent Nelson.
The star cast of the film also includes Noah Centineo playing Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, as well as Marwan Kenzari in a currently unknown role and Sarah Shahi as “a university professor and freedom fighter leading the resistance in Kahndaq.”
