‘I am so excited to be here and to talk to you about the man in black himself, Black Adam,’ Johnson said before introducing a surprisingly violent introduction to the anti-hero. 

The film’s early scene began like a horror film, with two explorer’s entering a cave shrouded in darkness.

But it’s clear it’s not a natural cavern, as it appears to be excavated and there’s foreign writing carved into the walls and floor. 

Suddenly, they see what looks like a crown floating in midair.

‘He’s out,’ one of the two people says.

A cloak-shrouded figure suddenly emerges from the inscribed stone and hunches down in place.

As he rises, armed men following the two explorers begin firing wildly at him, and one steps forward, but Black Adam (Johnson) grabs him by the neck and seems to suck the life out of him.

His skin is briefly shown covered in fast-appearing wrinkles and scars, before he’s reduced to a dusty skeleton that breaks off from the skull in Black Adams hand and crashes to the ground in a splash of dust. 

Other men with rifles begin firing wildly, but Black Adam just catches their bullets in his hand, while others bounce off his suit.

The clip ends abruptly after the introduction by showing off the title card with its recognizable lightning bolt.
