The new images (via The Direct) come from the film’s line of toys and feature nearly all of the main characters, including Sabbac, the main villain of the film and a menacing-looking presence. Sabbac has not appeared in any trailers for the film, so it’s unclear exactly how he’ll factor into the movie.
Check out how Sabbac will look in Black Adam below:
In the DC comics, Sabbac has the ability to harness and access the powers of Hell by speaking his own name. Throughout the comics, Sabbac acts as an adversary for the Shazam Family, as well as having various run-ins with the likes of Black Adam. In the film, he will be played by Marwan Kenzari, who will seemingly portray both Sabbac and Ishmael Gregor, an alter ego of Sabbac’s.
