With the Black Adam trailer released today, June 8, we get a taste of the origin story of Dwayne Johnson’s character, reborn as a god. Jay Z and Kanye’s “Murder To Excellence” plays in the background as we see the Justice Society of America, which includes Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), and Dr. Fate (Pierce Brosnan).
Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the Egyptian gods—and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.
Black Adam releases in theaters October 21.
