Los Angeles, June 8 (IANS) DC Comics fans are getting a closer look at Dwayne Johnson's "Black Adam" in a new, action-packed trailer released on Wednesday, reports 'Variety'.

"Black Adam" has the professional wrestler-and-Hollywood superstar as the powerful anti-hero and sworn nemesis of Shazam, played by Zachary Levi in a 2019 origin movie and in the upcoming sequel, "Shazam: Fury of the Gods", which is due to be released next year. After more than a decade in development, "Black Adam" will be released on July 29 this year.

Johnson was originally supposed to enter the DC universe as Black Adam in 2019's "Shazam"; his role, however, was scrapped when the spinoff for his character was greenlit in 2017, 'Variety' notes.

In October 2021, Johnson debuted a first look at the film on Twitter -- which showed Black Adam breaking out of imprisonment after 5, 000 years of captivity. "This character, this film, this universe has been a gigantic passion project of mine for a very long time, " Johnson said in the October video. "And the truth is, I was born to play Black Adam."

The film, according to 'Variety', will also introduce members of the Justice Society of America, an iconic group quite similar to the Justice League.
