The makers of Black Adam drop another Comic-Con special preview trailer for the first-ever anti-hero superhero fantasy drama.
Black Adam stars Dwayne Johnson, an anti-hero from Kahndaq who was imprisoned for 5,000 years after he gained God-like powers. The cast includes Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Sarah Shahi, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate, plus Marwan Kenzari and Bodhi Sabongui.
