It’s been a long time coming but Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s highly anticipated DC Extended Universe debut is now on track to arrive in theaters. Black Adam, starring the wrestling legend and actor as the titular antihero, is a spinoff and sequel to the 2019 movie Shazam!. The movie has been in the works since the early 2000s and now we’re finally getting close to seeing it in theaters. Black Adam, a powerful being on par with Superman, is the original champion of the wizard Shazam. But unlike his heroic counterpart played by Zachary Levi, Adam’s sense of morality is often a bit more… let’s say flexible. Black Adam will tell the story of the character’s return to the mortal world after spending a long time in a magical prison. We can only guess what terrible vengeance he will have in store for the world.
Black Adam is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who also directed Johnson’s new Disney movie, Jungle Cruise. Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab Noshirvani wrote the film’s story. Besides Adam, the movie will also feature several beloved characters from the Justice Society of America, making it a must-watch for DC fans. To get you prepared for this exciting new DCEU film, we’ve put together everything we know about Black Adam so far, from the plot and casting details to updates on filming and release dates.

Black Adam is a 2022 American superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name. Produced by New Line Cinema, DC Films, Seven Bucks Productions, and FlynnPictureCo., it is a spin-off from Shazam! (2019) and the eleventh film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), serving as the first installment of Phase One. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and written by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab Noshirvani, the film stars Dwayne Johnson (who also served as a producer) as the titular character alongside Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, Bodhi Sabongui, and Pierce Brosnan. Johnson was attached to Shazam! early in development and confirmed to portray the villain Black Adam in September 2014, but the producers later decided to give the character his own film. Sztykiel was hired in October 2017. Collet-Serra joined in June 2019 for a planned release date of December 2021, but this timeline was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Additional casting took place over the next year, including four members of the Justice Society of America (JSA), and the script was rewritten by Haines and Noshirvani. Filming took place from April to August 2021 at Trilith Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, and also in Los Angeles. Black Adam had its world premiere in Mexico City on October 3, 2022 and was theatrically released in the United States on October 21, 2022, by Warner Bros. Pictures. Critics praised the performances of Johnson and Brosnan but criticized the screenplay and villain, while the action sequences drew polarized responses.2022-10-22 7:31:00 pm by adam
During an interview with The Wrap, producer Hiram Garcia attributed the latest Black Adam release date delay to the VFX pipeline. "Obviously all these superhero movies just require so much VFX, and we’re just in a situation where the majority of the VFX houses are just completely swamped with work. I think that’s why you saw seismic shifts across the board, and you continue to see those giant properties just moving further down the line," Garcia explained. "And it’s just a matter of the vendors being able to accommodate the amount of VFX they have to do, the shots that have to be done." Filming began in April 2021, with Johnson marking the occasion by sharing the movie's rather snazzy clapperboard on social media, with the shoot wrapping up midway though July. Johnson has confirmed on Twitter that the movie has wrapped filming – and it sounds like it was quite the shoot! "That's a wrap on BLACK ADAM. Incredible journey. Hardest undertaking of my entire career physically & mentally. Worth every second. Boundless gratitude to my 1,000+ crew members, actors and director, Jaume Collet-Serra. The hierarchy of power in DC Universe is changing." "This has been one for the ages and easily the hardest labor and toughest grind mentally and physically of my entire career. Worth. Every. Second. Love you all. Thank you all."2022-10-22 7:32:00 pm by asia
