It’s taken a long time, but Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s highly anticipated DC Extended Universe debut is finally set to hit theatres. Black Adam is a spinoff and sequel to the 2019 film Shazam!, starring the wrestling legend and actor as the titular antihero.
The film has been in development since the early 2000s, and it is finally nearing completion. Black Adam, a powerful being on par with Superman, is the wizard Shazam’s original champion. But, unlike his heroic counterpart, Zachary Levi, Adam’s moral compass is often a little more… let’s say flexible. The story of Black Adam’s return to the mortal world after spending a long time in a magical prison.
On July 15, 2021, Johnson announced that he had finished filming his scenes and that the film had officially wrapped. After that, some filming for the film continued without Johnson for a few weeks, shifting to Los Angeles.
Black Adam Star Cast and Filmmaker
Black Adam stars Donnie Yen, Laurence Fishburne, Bill Skarsgard, and Ian McShane. Aside from Dwayne Johnson, the cast of Black Adam will include Noah Centineo, Aldis Hodge, Sarah Shahi, Quintessa Swindell, and Pierce Brosnan as classic DC characters. also, Marwan Kenzari, James Cusati-Moyer, Bodhi Sabongui, Mo Amer, and Uli Latukefu have an important role.
the film was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. He also directed the starring Johnson Disney film, Jungle Cruise, Sztykiel, Adam, and Haines. The film is produced by Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee, and Stahelski, with executive producers Keanu Reeves and Louise Rosner.
Who is Black Adam
Kahndaq was an oppressive nation that used magic and sorcery to enslave parts of its population during Adam’s time. However, after becoming the Champion, Adam used his power to free his people and rule Kahndaq as its king.
Adam was a hero at first, but after his family was murdered, he turned to darkness and unintentionally unleashed the demons known as the Seven Deadly Sins. He was then imprisoned for his crimes, and Black Adam will release him after 5000 years, determined to restore Kahndaq to its former glory.
It is currently unknown how the film relates to Shazam! However, the Wizard’s death may be what allows Adam to escape his prison. While the plot of the film has yet to be revealed, we can expect to see Black Adam re-establish his kingdom.
This could cause the JSA to oppose him, resulting in a conflict between Adam and the superheroes. Given how these stories usually end, a larger threat will most likely emerge, prompting the heroes to band together to save the world.
Black Adam Trailer
On June 8, 2022, the first official Black Adam trailer was released online, giving us our first comprehensive look at the movie following a number of teases and clips. The Justice Society of America must fight the titular character after he awakens from a 5,000-year nap in the trailer. Hawkman once says to Black Adam, “Heroes don’t kill people,” to which the anti-hero retorts, “Well, I do.” The trailer didn’t let us down with plenty of superhero action, humor, a snide reference to the previous Iron Man film, and The Rock being The Rock (as Black Adam).
Black Adam (played by DJ) is an anti-hero who was imprisoned for 5,000 years and is now back with the pledge that no one would ever try to imprison him again, according to the official teaser of the movie that the makers released in August 2020.
While the creators did not reveal much about the plot, they did provide a brief animatic history of Adam’s life, which increased interest in the movie.
Black Adam Release Date
The release of the Dwayne Johnson movie, which was initially slated for 22 December 2021, has been postponed due to COVID-19 and will now take place on July 29, 2022. The film’s release date was just again postponed by the producers, this time from July 2022 to October 20, 2022, thus it appears that fans will now have to wait for a little longer.
