DC 2022 Teaser Reveals ‘Black Adam’, ‘The Flash’, ‘Aquaman’ Sequel Footage

You know what? It’s about time Warner Bros. started treating their DC Comics films with the same kind of hype that Marvel Studios does for theirs. This is a damn good start. A teaser boasting all of the impressive superhero flicks coming out in 2022 has just been dropped, and it features our most extensive look yet at Black Adam starring Dwayne Johnson.

In a teaser titled “The World Needs Heroes”, Warner Bros. has offered looks at the four films coming to fans in 2022: The Batman, Black Adam, The Flash, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

The most revealing bit is that we finally get to see the Justice Society of America as they’ll look in Black Adam. Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate are all seen during the minute-long footage.

There isn’t much that we see from Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, other than a couple shots of Jason Momoa, but it means a lot that there’s anything to show at all. For a while it looked as if James Wan was going to push the sequel into 2023.

Hopefully, this is the start of a trend. WB needs to do a better job of making these films feel like a big deal, like an event, the way we look at every Marvel movie that comes out.

The Batman is first up and opens on March 4th. Black Adam follows on July 29th, then The Flash races into theaters on November 4th. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom opens on December 16th.
