Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson did not fail to surprise attendees at this year’s Comic-Con on Saturday.

Fans knew he would be attending the event, but his outfit shocked fans. He showed up to the San Diego event suited up in full costume to promote DC Film’s latest superhero movie, Black Adam. Cheers erupted throughout Hall H upon Johnson’s entrance.

“Hall H, you have been warned,” Johnson’s voice boomed over the speakers. “The DC universe will never be the same again.”

As Johnson emerged from below the stage, he lifts his arms in a power pose as any super character would. As he raised his arms, the enormous screens behind him played a myriad of lighting strikes and bright effects.

Black Adam is known as a supervillain who has all the same powers as Superman, except he has little to no conscience.

After his grand entrance, Johnson joined the DC panel, to discuss the film in detail. He was accompanied by Black Adam director Jaume Collet-Serra and his fellow castmates Aldis HodgeNoah Centineo and Quintessa Swindell.

Even though the first trailer was released back in June, attendees got an exclusive look at never before seen footage featuring Viola Davis playing her character Amanda Waller.

“It has been a long journey filled with passion and grit to push Black Adam along — it has been over 10 years,” said Johnson. “To be here at Comic-Con, Hall H, representing a DC hero, an antihero, is a dream come true.”

“When I started 20 years ago, many moons ago, I would bring movies here and hope people would love it,” he said. “How can we create something that is fresh and unique … show and create something that’s never been done? My goal is to usher in a new era in the DC universe.”

Black Adam will hit theaters in the United States on October 21, 2022.
