Warner Bros. released the first trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, the upcoming film which will serve as a prequel to Shazam! and the movie will lead up to Shazam: Fury of Gods.
DC had earlier announced plans for various prequel one-shots, Black Adam – The Justice Society Files, with the first two shots showcasing Cyclone and Hawkman.
DC also the photo covers for all four one-shots, which feature Quintessa Swindell‘s Cyclone, Hawkman played by Aldis Hodge, Atom-Smasher (Noah Centineo), and Doctor Fate, played by Pierce Brosnan.
Here are all four Justice Society Files variant covers:
While Black Adam’s trailer gave fans some glimpses of the four Justice Society of America in the movie, these covers give us the first clear shots of each character, and they look great and quite comic-accurate.
Black Adam – The Justice Society Files Is Also On Its Way
Along with these covers, DC Comics also released a few details for the The Justice Society Files one-shot, which has its focus on Noah Centinho’s Atom-Smasher. The main story of the one-shot will be written by Cavan Scott with illustrations by Travis Mercer.
Artist Marco Santucci and writer Bryan Q. Miller will also continue their backup story series starring Adrianna Tomaz, aka Isis (played by Sarah Shahi in the movie). The one-shot will see a cover by Kaare Andrews.
DC gave a description for Black Adam – The Justice Society Files: Atom-Smasher #1:
Al Rothstein has big shoes to fill. Very big shoes. But he needs to prove himself before he can call himself Atom Smasher. He has the costume, and he has a mission…he just has tomake it through the night in one piece. And in part 3 of the Teth-Adam backup story: history begins to repeat itself as, in ancient Kahndaq, Teth-Adam’s son, Hurut, crosses a line for the greater good, while, in the present, Adrianna’s son, Amon, joins the race to save the sought-after eternium idol from Intergang’s clutches.
Black Adam is officially underway, with the recent toys from Funko, and DC releasing the one-shots alongside a brand new series by artist Rafa Sandoval and writer Christopher Priest, which will debut later this month.
Black Adam will hit the theaters on October 21.
