The final trailer for the upcoming Black Adam movie has been released and sheds more light on the Justice Society of America’s slate.

While the cast and characters have been known for a long time, the latest trailer gives more insight into their chemistry as a team.

The trailer

The trailer begins with a montage of Black Adam’s past and accompanies the voiceover of his son’s sacrifice before a shot of Black Adam vandalizing a town.

The DC anti-hero describes his power as a curse born of anger as soldiers surround him before opening fire.

The Justice Society of America is represented in a mansion believed to be owned by Aldis Hodges Hawkman.

The group discusses the threat Black Adam poses, and Hawkman is revealed to be on the phone with Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller.

After their conversation, the superhero group takes off in a jet that emerges from the mansion’s garden.

Hawkman and Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate speak to Black Adam to welcome him back without violence.

The trailer then cuts to show Adam’s strengths, and he takes on the Justice Society.

The battle leaves the city in ruins before an unknown figure emerges from the sea, who reappears with Hawkman for another short clip.

The trailer ends with the same voiceover telling Black Adam that he has the power to destroy or save the world.

What we know about the film

The film follows Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, who was imprisoned for nearly 5,000 years after gaining the power of the gods.

Sabbac will likely be the common enemy for the Justice Society and Black Adam.

The official synopsis of the film reads:

“In ancient Kahndaq, Teth Adam was bestowed the almighty powers of the gods.”

“After using these powers for vengeance, he was imprisoned, becoming Black Adam. Nearly 5,000 years have passed and Black Adam has gone from man, to myth, to legend.”

“Now released, his unique form of justice, born out of rage, is challenged by modern day heroes who form the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher, and Cyclone.”
