Do heroes kill? The Rock certainly isn’t the first person to raise this question, but he does need to answer it after fans expressed frustration with the latest trailer for his upcoming DCEU movie, Black Adam.
According to reports about the new trailer released at CinemaCon this week, the Rock’s character Black Adam declares, “Heroes don’t kill people… Well, I do.” Responding to a report on the trailer from Fandango reporter Erik Davis, a Twitter user pointed out that several DCEU heroes have killed, including Superman and Batman, deciding, “That line doesn’t make sense.”
That tweet queued the The Rock’s entrance music, forcing the People’s Champion to set the record straight. “Once you watch Black Adam you’ll understand the context of the line,” he tweeted. “It makes sense. The mythology of Teth/Black Adam. Ruthless with zero regard.” To be sure, glimpses we’ve already seen of the movie lean heavily on the character’s ruthlessness. Footage from DC Fandome last year showed Black Adam using his electricity to fry an assailant, crushing the skeletal remains with his bare hands.
But the footage also showed us other costumed characters who will likely lead Black Adam on the path to good. “It’s a glorious world out there,” intones Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate, as Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman, Noah Centineo’s Atom Smasher, and Quintessa Swindell’s Cyclone all appear.
