Dwayne Johnson has confirmed that filming for the movie ‘Black Adam’ will start in Spring 2021. He posted on social media with the update below.
Black Adam is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra who directed Johnson in Disney’s Jungle Cruise.
The film also stars Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, and Sarah Shahi will be playing the female lead, a university professor and freedom fighter leading the resistance in the DC fictional nation of Kahndaq.
Johnson has also confirmed the Justice Society of America will be a part of the movie and producer Hiram Garcia has also teased they are going to intensify.
“The journey we’re going to put Black Adam on, it’s very compelling — what he’s gone through and what you’re going to see on-screen is going to be amazing to watch play out, and then when you couple that with how powerful every character is who is going to be in the universe, it’s really going to heat things up,” said Garcia. “We have a lot of fun saying that the hierarchy of the power in the DC Universe is going to change because when Black Adam arrives, everyone needs to watch out because he’s going to change the game.”
Black Adam has been said to have a December 22, 2021 release date, but the release date could get pushed back due to the delays surrounding filming because of fears surrounding the coronavirus. Also, it is hard to do the post-work on a movie made that late in the year for the same year’s release.
