Other projects in DC that are around the corner
The day before the first preview screenings of ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ is set to commence, the day the Black Adam trailer is set to release. Warner Bros. might want the trailer for Black Adam to be attached to the dinosaur film, which has already raised their hopes for the highest opening weekend of 2022.
Warner Bros. is planning a long shot; they are releasing the trailer before releasing many 2022 hits, as they can play in front of many summer movies that are likely to do well for themselves, like Thor: Love and Thunder. They might be planning this to give some breathing space to the character as it is new; it could prove to be a good marketing strategy.

When Warner Bros. announced this news, it was quite a shock for the fans, and hence there was a disappointment, but DC will make up for that with its live-action movies that are still to come out.
