Johnson revealed that the highly-anticipated trailer for DC’s Black Adam is on its way, and soon. 

Black Adam has seemingly taken a long time to take off, mainly due to complications involving COVID-19; now, however, it seems as though the feature is finally running instead of walking. 

The feature was originally set to release on July 29th, 2022, but certain factors saw the film be pushed back to October of this year (2022), which is hopefully the movie’s final release date. 

Johnson has posted a few photos on his Instagram detailing the progress of the film, such as when the film finished filming, and when reshoots for the movie began. Now, after what seems like a lifetime, Black Adam is finally in sight. 

The actor revealed that the trailer for Black Adam will release on June 8th, 2022. This was shared via an Instagram post, in which Johnson also shared a behind-the-scenes photo, stating that they finally shot what he called the ‘iconic moment’.

The trailer will land just in time for when the first ever previews for Jurassic World: Dominion are set to start. This is a smart move, as the final instalment to the Jurassic World franchise is bound to be a huge hit. 

DC is also releasing Shazam! Fury of the Gods this year, just two months before Black Adam hits cinemas. It remains to be seen if Warner Bros. will connect the two films, given Shazam and Black Adam’s close connection in the comics. 

Johnson stated in his post that Black Adam’s throne is ‘a big deal’, suggesting that the actor has not only done his research on the character, but given everything he has in order to become the Black Adam the fans deserve. 

The DC actor has not one, but two DC movies coming out this year; DC League of Super-Pets is set to release on July 29th, 2022, and of course Black Adam, which will land in cinemas on October 21st, 2022.
