A synopsis reads: “Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient 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.”

Teasing Black Adam back at DC FanDome in October, Johnson said: “This film, this universe has been a gigantic passion project of mine for a very long time. The film has without question some of the biggest action sequences I have ever been a part of.”

The film is a spin-off from 2019 superhero film Shazam! starring Zachary Levi. A sequel, titled Shazam! Fury Of The Gods, is due to be released on December 21, 2022.
