    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and director Jaume Collet-Serra's superhero passion project is still a way off, but DC Fandome gave fans a look at the upcoming film, including a clip of the electrifying introduction of Black Adam.

    Pierce Brosnan, who plays Dr. Fate in the upcoming blockbuster starts the segment with a big claim: "I've never seen the likes of it before. Having done James Bond for ten years, four films; nothing compares to this." Hawkman actor Aldis Hodge calls Black Adam "more brutal, uncompromising, fueled by the depths of his pain." Backed up by the clip we see introducing Johnson's title character in the movie, we may be in for a ruthless Black Adam portrayal.

    Johnson reveals Black Adam has entered the post-production process, gearing up for its release in theaters on July 29, 2022. In the video above, you can catch a glimpse of some concept art and a short scene from the film. The new footage shows a woman reading an ancient text carved on the stone floor after discovering a levitating crown. Upon reading the word "Shazam" aloud, the scripts glow and a bolt of lightning shatters the darkness in the ruins. A hooded Black Adam rises from where the bolt struck. He grabs a soldier electrocutes him, frying the man down to the bone. Adam then floats into the air as a volley of futile bullets bounces harmlessly off of his pitch-black suit. 

    Check out the rest of the DC Fandome reveals and trailers including a new look at the Peacemaker HBO Max series, The Batman's newest trailer, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, and footage from Gotham Knights. Are you smelling what The Rock is cooking with his take on Black Adam? Will the movie live up to Pierce Brosnan's hype-filled words?

    Barry Allen himself, Ezra Miller, introduced the first look at his much-anticipated solo movie following the events of Justice League. He said they don’t have a trailer to show because the film is still in production but does have something to show fans in anticipation of the film’s release late next year.

    The short tease opens with a big question surrounding many of The Flash’s biggest adventures: “Tell me something. You can go anywhere you want, right? Any timeline. Any universe.” The Flash appears outside his childhood home, we assume this is the night his mother tragically died, to change fate and save the life of his mom.

    This story known as Flashpoint is well-worn territory from DC comics and the CW TV show, but it's incredibly important to the scope of Barry Allen’s powers and responsibilities and can be played in so many ways due to the infinite possibilities of time travel and alternate timelines. Barry learns that actions, no matter how noble, have the greatest consequences that can ripple throughout time. We see possible outcomes of these actions with a shot of a bloody Bat-cowl lying empty on a floor, but another scene reveals another cowl, possibly another Batman from an alternate timeline who we haven’t seen on the big screen in close to 30 years… Also, are there three Barry Allens hanging out in the Bat Cave?

    The sneak peek was far too short, and I’m excited to see more! Check out other big trailers from DC Fandome including the story trailers for Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League and Gotham Knights. What did you think of this quick tease of The Flash? What kind of time travel shenanigans would you like to see Barry (or Barrys) get into in theaters? Let us know in the comments!

    The Batman's DC Fandome Trailer Emerges From The Shadows

    Director Matt Reeves' new take on Gotham's caped crusader, The Batman, took center stage at DC Fandome with a look behind the scenes at the film's production and the reveal of the second trailer.

    Robert Pattinson's portrayal of Batman takes place in the early years of the crime fighter's journey, taking cues from the Batman: Year One comics. Reeves describes this version as "a recluse rockstar in a decaying manor" and felt Pattinson was the right person for the role before any auditions or screen tests were even performed. Zoë Kravitz plays Selena Kyle (AKA Catwoman), who Reeves says had an attitude that was "so Selena" from the get-go. Kravitz talked about wanting Selena to feel like a real human being and not an idea.

    Prior iterations of big-screen Batmen have utilized fear to overcome their opponents, but this take feels more direct and unwavering in his actions. Bruce says in the trailer, "when that light hits the sky; it's not just a call. It's a warning." This is reinforced by the Terminator-esque car chase with Colin Farrel's Oswald Cobblepot (who absolutely kills it from what we've seen so far) at the conclusion of the trailer, where Batman struts confidently/menacingly from an inferno towards the classic Gotham villain. 

    Batman's primary foe this time around is The Riddler, played by Paul Dano. Other names in the cast include Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, and John Tuturro as Carmine Falcone. The Batman will be released exclusively in theaters on March 4, 2022.

    Gotham Knights Re-Emerges At DC Fandome With A New Trailer

    Coming out of the shadows once again is Gotham Knights, a co-op action RPG that puts players in the shoes of various members of Batman's former sidekicks. In a new story-focused trailer revealed at DC Fandome, the stage is set for WB Games Montreal's latest game.

    Both Bruce Wayne and Jim Gordon have failed as the protectors of Gotham, according to the Penguin, who narrates part of the trailer. He says those two beacons of hope "never had a handle on the city" and that Nightwing and the rest of the inheritors of Batman's legacy, Batgirl, Robin, and the Red Hood, "don't stand a chance." He's referring to the chances of going up against a shadowy organization known as the Court of Owls, the seemingly impossible grip they have over Gotham. No one talks about the Court, yet they pull the strings of everything in Gotham and are always listening.

    Check out the trailer for a look at the deadly Talons the Gotham Knights will have to go up against. They range from nimble deadly assassins to large, brutish bruisers, each looking to pose a unique problem when players have to go toe-to-toe with the organization. You'll also get a sense of the gothic visuals of the Court and its members, bringing a creepy, cult-like tone to the game.

    Gotham Knights still does not have a release date, but the showing at DC Fandome did re-affirm it will be out in 2022.


    What did you think of this new look at Gotham Knights? Are they doing the Court of Owls story justice from what WB Games has shown? Let us know in the comments!

    Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League's Story Trailer Debuts At DC Fandome

    Rocksteady Studios is ready to show more of its follow-up to 2015's Batman: Arkham Knight, and at DC Fandome, we got the first story trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League.

    The trailer starts with the Squad (Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, and King Shark) being introduced to their roles in Task Force X by Amanda Waller before setting them loose in Metropolis to take out a series of powerful targets: the Justice League. In the previous trailer, we found out Superman was the alpha target for the Squad, but now we know it's not just DC's boy scout-turned-bad that needs to be taken down. We see menacing images of Green Lantern John Stewart, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and what looks like a Batmobile with a subsequent shot of a hand holding a gun (which very well could be Batman!) put in perspective the daunting task ahead of this unlikely group of antiheroes.

    The Justice League members aren't quite acting on their own free will, with each showing signs of corruption on their faces and around their eyes. Brainiac's metal tentacles hang ominously over Metropolis, giving a big hint about why the defenders of Earth have become its biggest threat. We also get to see some of DC's rogues' gallery, one of which loses his head, and classic Batman villain the Penguin is the butt of a cruel prank from the Suicide Squad.

    Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is releasing in 2022, with no specific release date as of yet. You can play it on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Let us know what you think about this new look at the game in the comments below!

    Fans of the hyper-patriotic killing machine Peacemaker from James Gunn's most recent film, The Suicide Squad, should prepare for his show early next year. The Peacemaker series sees the return of John Cena in the title role and will debut on HBO Max on January 13.

    This eight-episode series will follow the origins of what made Peacemaker, uh... the way he is. Backing up John Cena on the cast are Danielle Brooks as Adebayo, Freddie Stroma as Vigilante, Jennifer Holland as Harcourt, Steve Agee as Economos, Chukwudi Iwuji as Murn, and Robert Patrick as Auggie Smith. 

    In a new teaser trailer revealed at DC Fandome, we got our first good look at the show written by James Gunn, who also directed five episodes of the series. Those looking for more of The Suicide Squad's crass humor and violence draped in a warm veil of heartwarming moments humanizing the misunderstood side characters of DCs cannon periphery look to be in luck with Peacemaker.


    How's the Peacemaker show looking? Was there anything else you saw from DC Fandome you're looking forward to? Let us know in the comments!
