Dwayne Johnson, who has waited a long time to play ‘Black Adam’ on-screen, announced on Friday that the shoot for the DC film is finally over. He announced the news with a tweet that read, “That concludes BLACK ADAM. Unbelievable journey. Physically and mentally, this was the most difficult undertaking of my entire career. Each second is valuable. I am indebted to my crew of over 1,000 members, actors, and director, Jaume Collet-Serra. The DC Universe’s power hierarchy is shifting.”
As was the case with the majority of projects, production on ‘Black Adam’ was halted due to the pandemic. According to Deadline, the film’s storey details how, thousands of years before Billy Batson was chosen to play Captain Marvel, the wizard Shazam chose another person for the role.
Teth-Adam, also known as ‘Mighty Adam,’ was once a hero, but absolute power corrupted him completely. He later assumed the identity of Black Adam and was exiled by Shazam. Now that he has returned to earth and is in the present era, he has recognised his error and is attempting to clear his name.
Along with Johnson, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Pierce Brosnan as Dr Fate star in the film.
‘Black Adam’ is currently scheduled to open in theatres on July 29, 2022.
According to Deadline, ‘Black Adam’ will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who previously directed Johnson alongside Emily Blunt in Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise’.
Seven Bucks Productions’ Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia are producing the film alongside Beau Flynn of FlynnPictureCo. Scott Sheldon of FlynnPictureCo will serve as executive producer.
