Warner Bros. Pictures has released a new trailer for the upcoming film Black Adam, the latest DC Extended Universe film starring Dwayne Johnson in the titular role. Black Adam also stars Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, and Pierce Brosnan.

The trailer shows Black Adam (Johnson) angry and in despair after his son is killed, which fuels his quest for vengeance. Black Adam says in a voiceover:  “these powers are not a gift…but a curse…born out of rage.” Also shown for the first time in the trailer is the Justice Society, a superhero team first seen in the DC Comics, who hope to negotiate a peaceful surrender with Black Adam.  Black Adam tells the Justice Society: “I’m not peaceful. Nor do I surrender. I kneel before no one.”

Black Adam arrives in theaters on Oct. 21. Take a look at the trailer – here.
