Viola Davis cameos as Amanda Waller in the latest DC trailer.
The second official trailer for Black Adam was out on Thursday out of the gate. Superstar Dwayne Johnson released new footage on Twitter ahead of the reveal at Warner Bros.
This second trailer is one of the best trailers, giving DC’s antidote to more than just an actual villain. Doctor Fate, played by Pierce Brosnan, leads a team of X-Men-like heroes – including Hawkman (Aldis Hodge) and Atom Smasher (Noah Centenio) – to take down Black Adam. Are included. They are known as the Justice Society of America.
In the trailer, DC also revealed Nick Fury: Amanda Waller (Viola Davis). You can watch it for 49 seconds.
Davis last appeared in DC Universe’s Pacemaker, the 2021 spin-off series from Suicide Squad. The ruthless intelligence officer and leader of Task Force X, aka The Suicide Squad, is more antagonistic than Marvel’s Nick Fury and is happy to execute anyone who disobeys his orders. Like Samuel L. Jackson, the character behind the making of The Avengers, Davis has starred in several films.
Black Adam is on the hunt for a hero after being released from 5000 years of imprisonment. The Justice Society of America joins in to help vent his anger, teaching him how to be a hero rather than a villain before teaming up to fight a more powerful force.
Black Adam hits theatres on October 21.
