A Black Adam trailer has been re-released to remove footage from the 2017 version of Justice League. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared the new version of the trailer himself, with footage from the film of him replacing the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it clip from the theatrical Justice League.
The trailer opens with clips from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Aquaman, and Birds of Prey, but the original version also included a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment of the villainous Steppenwolf pounding the ground with his axe. This particular clip is taken from the 2017 version of the film: in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the scene instead sees the villainous Darkseid hitting the ground. You can watch the original trailer below.

Johnson shared the trailer again (opens in a new tab)now the Steppenwolf clip is missing, with the caption: “Fixed Long before the world of heroes and villains, #BlackAdam ruled all. A merciless god with a power born of rage. The #ManInBlack hits theaters from all over the world… ONE MONTH FROM TODAY. OCTOBER 21”
The canonical version of Justice League is still the 2017 theatrical release, so it’s unlikely that Black Adam will notice anything from the Snyder Cut. Black Adam stars Johnson as the title character, an antihero who, freed from millennia of incarceration, finds himself with the Justice Society of America. Pierce Brosnan, Viola Davis, Sarah Shahi, Aldis Hodge, Quintessa Swindell and Noah Centineo co-star.
Black Adam arrives this October 21. It’s the only DC movie left on the year’s release schedule, after Shazam 2 was pushed back from December to March 2023. While you wait for Black Adam, check out our guide to all the upcoming major movie release dates for more. plan your next trip to the theater.
