Johnson unveiled the date before today’s NCAA tournament game between UCLA and Alabama. In a short ad, Johnson can be heard saying in a booming voice, “The hierarchy of power in the DC universe is about to change.”
Johnson also posted the date on Instagram, along with a video of his voiceover blasting in Times Square.
“Black Adam” follows the story of the anti-hero of the same name, played by Johnson. The character of Black Adam first appeared in DC Comics in the 1940s as a power-corrupt villain, and slowly became an anti-hero by the 2000s, known for his disregard of rules and conventions.
