Black Adam: What is the movie about? 

Black Adam is a spin-off from Warner Bros and New Line Cinema's Shazam!, featuring Zachary Levi. The character first appeared in DC Comics in the 1940s as a villain corrupted by power. He became an anti-hero in the early 2000s. Jaume Collet-Serra, who earlier directed Johnson in the upcoming Jungle Cruise, is helming the film. Johnson has said that Black Adam will feature some of the most biggest action sequences ever filmed. Johnson has also undergone grueling physical training for the titular superhero role.
