DC and Warner Bros Unleash the Fury of the Gods in the Latest Shazam Trailer, while Black Adam fights the Justice Society

Beginning our coverage with the Warner Bros. Theatrical Panel, and it showed a new trailer for the latest SHAZAM film, Shazam! Fury of the Gods. Before getting to the actual trailer, Warner Bros, slipped in a muted reminder of their other two DCEU projects, except without mentioning the “Other Red Guy with a Lightning Bolt’s” name and Aquaman, due to the ongoing scandal with Ezra Miller, and Amber Heard. The film is set to be released this Christmas.

Warner Bros Theatrical Panel was severely lacking any other DCEU titles, it was clear to see that Warner Bros was on the losing end of its rivalry with Marvel Studios. The only thing worth watching was Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s Electrifying Comic-Con entrance as Black Adam. The audience ate it up, with The Rock’s natural ability to play into the role of a heel/villain, he took on a fan’s question “How would Black Adam Fare against The Man of Steel?” And replied while raising his eyebrow, “It probably all depends on who’s playing Superman.”

As for his new movie, a new trailer played on screen for the audience, showing Black Adam fighting the Justice Society. The film will premiere in theaters on October 21st.
