Get a fresh (but short) look at The Rock as Black Adam, the DC comic book anti-hero heading to cinemas in October.

Back in March we saw Warner Bros make some sizeable changes to its release schedule over the next two years or so, announcing a wave of delays that saw some films pushed back by up to seven months. The studio’s DC Extended Universe projects were the hardest hit, with the upcoming Black Adam (which was due in the summer) now arriving in October.

Still, despite the fact that the movie seems to be taking just about forever to make it to the screen, promotion for the film is now in full swing ahead of its planned October 21st release date. Last month we got the film’s first trailer and now you can see a second short trailer created for San Diego Comic Con, right here.

The synopsis for the film reads: ‘Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods – and imprisoned just as quickly – Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.’

Jaume Collet-Serra directs the film which will debut characters from the Justice Society of America. Collet-Serra shut down talk of Henry Cavill’s Superman making a cameo in the film, whilst chatting about it at Comic Con this past weekend, stating that it’s an origin story rather than a stage to set up future sequels. However, we will see the mighty Pierce Brosnan, who is set to portray Doctor Fate, alongside Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone and Aldis Hodge as Hawkman.

October is still some way away but we’re hoping the oodles and oodles of charisma that The Rock possesses makes this one to watch. In the meantime, here’s that trailer below…
