DC’s Man In Black & White
New images shared by Vanity Fair offer an intense look at Dwayne Johnson suited up as Black Adam in black and white, as well as his new allies or potential enemies in the JSA.
One image shows a hooded Black Adam in what appears to be the dwelling place of the wizard Shazam, who granted him his powers. Other images showcase Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman, Pierce Brosnan’s Dr. Fate, Quintessa Swindell’s Cyclone and Noah Centineo’s Atom Smasher.

While Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam is expected to be seen joining forces with the Justice Society, it is not clear how long their alliance may last. With the character traditionally being more of a supervillain in DC’s comics, he may not end the film on the side of the heroes.
Here is the synopsis for Black Adam:
“Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods—and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.”
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a script written by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, the DCEU film stars Dwayne Johnson, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, Bodhi Sabongui, and Pierce Brosnan.
Black Adam opens in theaters on October 21, 2022. Be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news regarding the future of the DC Universe, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more original video content.
