“This movie, this universe has been a huge passion project of mine for a very long time,” Johnson said before presenting the film. “This film without question has some of the biggest action sequences that I have been a part of.”
Sharing the video on Twitter, Johnson wrote, “He’s ruthless. He’s invincible. That’s about to change the hierarchy of power in the DC Universe.”
Last year, Johnson unveiled the first image of his character on Instagram.
“Black Adam will arrive on #DCFanDome tomorrow. Personally, I salute our Warner Bros. and DC partners for creating this historic opportunity for fans to absorb our entire DC universe, while we all manage the challenges of COVID.” Keep doing it. Awesome. The man in black is coming to crush them all,” she wrote at the time.
Johnson first announced his role in the project in November 2019 where he described his character in more detail.
“I’m honored to be associated with the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to be Black Adam,” he wrote at the time. “Black Adam is magically blessed with powers equal to that of Superman, but the difference is that he doesn’t walk the trail toe or line.
“He’s a rebellious, one-of-a-kind superhero who will always do what’s right for people – but he does it his own way. Truth and Justice – the Black Adam way. This role is one of the best I’ve played in my career.” Also different from other roles and I am grateful that we all go on this journey together.”
