Fans of the DC Universe were ecstatic to know that they would be able to enjoy the film in an immersive environment.

‘Witness all of the action in a #DolbyCinema. Get your tickets for #BlackAdam today for the most immersive experience,’ read an Instagram post.

His son is seen being cut down while Adam is forced to watch, tortured by the sight of his dead son.

He is seen using his superhuman powers to fly through the city, unleashing a lightning blast from his hand.

‘These powers are not a gift, but a curse, born out of rage,’ he says, while holding his dead son.

Another shot shows him in his full black costume, surrounded by armed soldiers, who start opening fire… to no avail.

He catches one of the bullets between his thumb and forefinger, stating in another language, ‘Your magic is weak’ before taking out the soldiers one by one.

Another shot shows Carter Hall a.k.a. Hawkman (Aldis) out of costume, stating, ‘This loose cannon needs to be locked down, before innocent people start getting hurt.’

A pair of fighter jets are seen flanking a flying Adam, with one of the pilots telling him to land, but Adam simply punches his wing, sending him into a tailspin.

Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) tells Carter that he’s been asleep for 5,000 years and asks who is on his team.

The team is shown heading to a plane, including Albert Rothstein a.k.a. Atom Smasher (Noah) and Dr. Fate (Pierce Brosnan), who calls themselves the Justice Society as they get into a high-powered jet that takes off from an underground hangar.

The trailer shows a glimpse at Dr. Fate’s powers, as Hawkman tells Adam, ‘We’re here to negotiate your peaceful surrender.’

Adam is seen tossing a helicopter like it was nothing, along with a glimpse of Maxine Hunkell a.k.a. Cyclone (Quintessa), as Adam says, ‘I’m not peaceful… nor do I surrender.’

The trailer also shows a glimpse at Sarah Shahi’s Adrianna Tomaz, a.k.a. Isis, who tells Adam, ‘You did not come here to seek justice. You came to exact revenge.’

We also get a glimpse at Atom Smasher in his full size, as Adam tells someone, ‘I never said I was a hero.’

Dr. Fate tells Adam that he has ‘two paths’ adding, ‘You can be the destroyer of this world… or you can be its savior,’ as the trailer comes to an explosive end.

Black Adam will be released in the U.S. and U.K. on October 21.
