Dwayne Johnson stars in the action-adventure Black Adam, the first-ever feature film to explore the story of the DC antihero under the direction of Jaume Collet-Serra (Jungle Cruise). Black Adam, a Seven Bucks/Flynn Picture Co. Production presented by New Line Cinema premieres Friday, December 16 on HBO GO.
In ancient Kahndaq, the slave Teth Adam was gifted the almighty powers of the gods. But he used those powers for vengeance and was imprisoned. Now, 5,000 years later, he is freed and once again wields his dark sense of justice onto the world. Refusing to surrender, Teth Adam is challenged by a team of modern-day heroes known as the Justice Society — Hawkman, Doctor Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone — who seek to return him to eternal captivity.
In Black Adam, Johnson stars alongside Aldis Hodge (City on a Hill, One Night in Miami) as Hawkman, Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) as Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi (Rush Hour 3), Marwan Kenzari (Murder on the Orient Express, Aladdin), Quintessa Swindell (Voyagers, Trinkets) as Cyclone, Mohammed Amer (Mo, Ramy), Bodhi Sabongui (A Million Little Things), and Pierce Brosnan (the James Bond and Mamma Mia! franchises) as Doctor Fate.
Collet-Serra directed from a screenplay written by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, based on characters from DC created by Bill Parker and C.C. Beck. The film’s producers are Beau Flynn, Hiram Garcia, Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia, with Toby Emmerich, Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Chris Pan, Walter Hamada, Adam Schlagman, Geoff Johns, Eric McLeod and Scott Sheldon executive producing.
The director’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar®-nominated director of photography Lawrence Sher (Joker), production designer Tom Meyer (Real Steel, Finch), editors Mike Sale (Red Notice, Skyscraper) and John Lee (Anyone Home?), costume designers Kurt and Bart (Deadpool 2, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 & 2), Oscar®-winning visual effects supervisor Bill Westenhofer (Life of Pi, Wonder Woman), and composer Lorne Balfe (Black Widow).

Saw it at Ayala Feliz last night and it was good. My favorite parts were actually from the Justice society especially Dr Fate. I just hope they can expand more on the other characters as well.
