“A ship flies over ice as Adam is put in stasis. There are shots of him as a slave before being ‘reborn as a god.’ Adam says, ‘I kneel before no one.’ Doctor Fate says, ‘I’ve seen the future. [Black Adam] will destroy this world or be its savior.’ The footage cuts Adam walking through a desert, and someone shoots a rocket at him. He catches the rocket and it explodes. He survives but looks pissed off as electricity crackles around him. The footage also includes shots of the JSA in action. Atom Smasher is in his giant form and runs down the street. The Hawkman shot from the original trailer is shown. Cyclone is seen inside a ship, before cutting to more quick shots. Someone says, ‘Heroes don’t kill people,’ while Adam replies, ‘Well, I do.’ Then he punches a guy so hard the person flies high into the air, disappears, and dies.”
