    I bet that's just a weird edit they did for the trailer. Actual scene is probably kills the one dude, someone accidentally fires a single shot that he catches, THEN everyone starts unloading on him.

    Funny, I'm more excited about Pierce Brosnan playing Dr. Fate than I am The Rock as Black Adam. Mostly because I know what to expect from Black Adam and The Rock performing as him, but Dr. Fate is a much more interesting, and layered character, I'm wondering how well Bosnan will do in the role and how well they even wrote him in the movie. Are they going to delve head first into the mystical realm like MCU did with Strange, or just have Fate there as CGI eye candy, casting some spells and incantations when it's convenient for the plot ala Zatanna?

    Hehe, sorry!

    Anti-hero makes sense in a movie. For the broader audience being bad but in a "good" way, or vica versa is more likely to sit better with people compared to the main character being strictly a villain, with PURE EVILNESS! :P

    Like Venom, which could be seen as strictly a villain is made in a way that the audience is cheering for him, even though his nature is vicious.

    Generally, Anti-Hero is like "Well, he's not really a good guy...but this other dude is like way worse."

    So I expect whoever the actual "Villain" of the movie is...he's gonna like eat a kitten on screen or something.

    Of course. The rock has it in his contract hes only allowed to play one dimensional characters. Hes also not allowed to lose a fight on screen.

    Sounds so interesting! cant wait.
    Suri Cruise and Katie Holmes are SP's.
