“It’s been a long journey, supported by passion, dedication, and grit,” Johnson said.

Director Jaume Collet-Serra, who collaborated with Johnson in last year’s action adventure movie Jungle Cruise, described Black Adam as a “dirty harry-type character” with “his own sense of justice and death.”

“If the system is corrupted, we may need someone to break it down,” Collet-Serra said.

The film also features the Justice Society of America, including Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), and Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan).
