The Rock is eagerly waiting for his Black Adam. Dwayne Johnson tweeted out that his new film Black Adam has wrapped.
The actor shared that it was an incredible journey and the hardest undertaking of his entire career physically and mentally. He wrote, “That 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.”
The story of the character is deemed to be complicated. This is because thousands of years before Billy Batson became Captain Marvel, the wizard Shazam selected another for the role. Mighty Adam a.k.a. Teth-Adam was a hero at first. However, absolute power corrupted and he became Black Adam. This led to him being exiled by Shazam.
Now the character has returned to earth and our time and is trying to see the error of his ways. Black Adam’s cast also includes Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate. As per the current schedule, Black Adam is expected to hit theatres on July 29, 2022.
The venture is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who had also directed Dwayne with Emily Blunt in Disney’s Jungle Cruise. Meanwhile, Dwayne, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia are producing the venture with Beau Flynn. Scott Sheldon will serve as EP.
Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani wrote the latest draft. Adam Sztykiel wrote the previous draft.
