The full official trailer for Black Adam is set to arrive next week, according to Dwayne Johnson.

Johnson – aka The Rock – will appear as the titular anti-hero in the Jaume Collet-Serra-directed DC film, which is due for release on October 21. He also serves as a producer on the forthcoming movie.

In his latest update about the project, the actor revealed that he and the team recently had “an extremely productive work week of filming the final touches of Black Adam” while providing further details on when fans can get a sneak peek at the finished product.

“World Premiere Trailer of BLACK ADAM drops JUNE 8th,” Johnson wrote at the end of his post.

“This is my second film with my director Jaume Collet-Serra. Our first collaboration was JUNGLE CRUISE, so we love taking big swings for our global audience,” he said earlier. “He always finds the heart & soul in our stories. The mana.”

Johnson recalled: “In 2018, we agreed to make BLACK ADAM together to create a new paradigm for the antihero. Jaume said ‘Let’s make BLACK ADAM, the DIRTY HARRY of all superheroes and some supervillains’.”

In a separate message shared on Twitter, The Rock confirmed that his character will have “no extra muscle padding”, writing: “I had the DC costume team remove all the thick muscle padding they put in the original Black Adam suit.

“The goal is to usher [in] a new era of antihero, so I wanted to put in the hard work and raise the bar.” You can see that post above.

Black Adam also stars the likes of Noah Centineo, Aldis Hodge, Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Shahi and Quintessa Swindell.

Ahead of a teaser for the movie arriving last year, Johnson explained: “This film, this universe, has been a gigantic passion project of mine for a very long time. The film has without question some of the biggest action sequences I have ever been a part of.”
