In The Latest TV Spot Trailer Black Adam Is Uncharacteristically Sarcastic

In a new TV promo for the forthcoming Black Adam, the Man in Black demonstrates his sardonic side as well as his murderous streak.

In a new TV promo for Black Adam, Dwayne Johnson's Teth-Adam reveals a shockingly sardonic side of himself. As the ad begins, the Justice Society of America (Doctor Fate, Hawkman, Cyclone, and Atom Smasher) prepare to board Hawkman's airship, while Black Adam drops down from the skies to people to the tune of the Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black."

Later, when Kent Nelson, Doctor Fate's alter ego, informs Black Adam that he believed the latter said he wouldn't kill unidentified inmates, Black Adam says, "That was sarcasm." Hawkman later tells Black Adam that heroes don't kill people, to which Black Adam responds that he does. The commercial concludes with Black Adam catching and surviving the detonation of a rocket.

While the character's sarcasm is exposed here for the first time, Johnson has previously emphasized the Man in Black's ruthlessness, adding, "The fact that Black Adam follows a code is what distinguishes him. If you try to hurt his people, family, nation, or himself, he will rend you in half. He would really grasp your neck, then your thigh, and shred your body into two parts."

Aside from his demeanor, director Jaume Collet-Serra mentioned Black Adam as the source of conflict rather than the solution, which distinguishes him from other DC Extended Universe heroes. "Here's the thing, Dwayne is a hero. In [Black Adam], he was the problem for everybody else," he commented. "And I think that that shift is what made these movies instantly different and reenergized. You could do things that you might have seen in other movies, but in a completely different way, because it's not your lead guy doing them."

As for the Justice Society of America, Johnson stated that the film was created to generate spinoffs for the characters introduced in it, adding, "We have a few ideas of what characters people are really going to respond to in Black Adam, and so we're already thinking ahead to: 'Let's start thinking about that movie, and what that movie looks like for them.'" Prior to Johnson's remarks, Hawkman actor Aldis Hodge showed interest in starring in solo Hawkman films.
