The latest Black Adam promo has Snyderverse fans praising Dwayne Johnson for removing a Josstice League scene. In addition, the teaser’s inclusion of DCEU’s trinity namely Henry Cavill’s Superman, Ben Affleck’s Batman and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) with Aquaman (Jason Momoa) also in the mix has the larger fanbase hopeful to witness the first interconnected DC flick honoring past titles.
5000 years ago, Black Adam had already changed the hierarchy of the DC Universe, before the age of heroes and villains was at play, when neither the Man of Steel nor the Dark Knight existed. And that is the highlight of the recent teaser titled “Legacy”. However, the first version of the teaser was caught in controversy for including a shot of 2017’s Justice league featuring Steppenwolf instead of scenes from Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
The teaser released by Johnson was quickly removed after immense backlash from Snyder fans. A surprising move and on top of that, The Rock shared the new teaser again but by acknowledging fans’ input to remove the brief Steppenwolf shot and instead tweeted the “Corrected” version.
While the Snyderverse fandom has taken it as a good sign, some still believe the studio discards ZSJL since it views the 2017’s theatrical version as canon. Many shared their version of the teaser with shots of the ensemble and Darkseid from the director’s cut. Moreover, the promo shows a headless Superman following the same tradition as Peacemaker, casting doubt on Cavill’s participation. Readers can check out fans’ reactions below.
Long before the world of heroes and villans, #BlackAdam ruled it all.
A god with zero mercy and power born from rage.
The #ManInBlack hits theaters worldwide…

They removed the piss filter, comedic tone of the first promo and now #BlackAdam trailer 2 and the recent promos are gathering positive hype all over. Now they removed a 0.1 sec shot of old steppenwolf and all this is a massive W imo. The new regime is listening to the fans 🔥🤞

Corrected what, exactly? The headless cameos? The uncertainty on who will play Batman and Superman? The fact that y'all still consider whedon's league canon? Nothing at all has been corrected, sir. pic.twitter.com/hw5D2fmFMK

Man that's what you call customer service. 👍🏻
Instantly taking care of the mistake and deleting the Joshit Cut scene. 💪🏻
Way to go @wbd 🙏🏻#BlackAdam#RestoreTheSnyderVerse https://t.co/uwywWj88aY

So people see they deleted the #BlackAdam trailer, possibly due to fan’s reaction to “Josstice L Steppenwolf” and no one thinks that’s a good sign?
If they give us a new trailer with ZSJL Stepp, then we’re seeing what they think of the fandom in real time… right?! https://t.co/ydJTAl9FXr

If @TheRock & @wbd announce the return to original canon & restore TheSnyderVerse I will watch #BlackAdam 10times at least in cinema. If not I won’t watch it once. I don’t want any non canon DC film until Zack’s 5 story arc is complete. It’s that simple. #RestoreTheSnyderVerse https://t.co/jZ9Qq3j9g6

Mad respect to @TheRock for listening to the fans and responding that quickly by deleting the Josstice League clip. The correction is much appreciated🙏#BlackAdam https://t.co/unhrhwdI6I

On the bright side, Harley Quinn is embraced as DC’s villain and it shouldn’t come as surprise since The Suicide Squad director James Gunn also confirmed the character’s future appearance. At the moment, Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller is the only character appearing in a full-fledged capacity from the original DCEU arc.
Johnson has actively participated in Black Adam’s marketing strategy via his company Seven Bucks Production. The actor has been quite active on social media, sharing artworks of the JSA and even teasing the internet with the first audience reaction from the test screening. With just a month away from its premiere, no wonder Warner Bros. Discovery and the titular star are avoiding any room for error that could potentially hurt box office projections.
Black Adam hits theatres on October 21.
