Dwayne Johnson stated on Instagram that the long-awaited DC picture Black Adam has finally concluded filming after years of development. The forthcoming superhero film is presently scheduled to hit theatres on July 29, 2022.
Dwayne Johnson posted a video from the set of Black Adam to commemorate the completion of filming. Johnson will rejoin Jungle Cruise director Jaume Collet-Serra for the upcoming DCEU picture, which will focus on his titular antihero, once known as Teth-Adam, a slave from Kahndaq who is bestowed superpowers by the ancient wizard Shazam. Adam spends millennia in prison after misusing his newly acquired talents and later becomes the archnemesis of the superhero Shazam.
What is there in the announcement video?
Johnson thanks everyone involved in the production while wearing his Black Adam attire, which is covered by a cloak, of course, in the announcement post. Even though the clip doesn’t reveal much about the film, it’s a touching video that shows how much effort the cast and crew put into this long-awaited movie. Throughout the video, Aldis Hodge, who plays Black Adam’s deadly antagonist and superhero, Hawkman, can lurk behind Johnson.
What changes have come in DC after The Rock agreed to be a part of the DC Universe?
Johnson revealed his intention to play Black Adam on the big screen just under seven years ago, despite his name having circulated in the DC world since the 2000s. Since then, a lot has happened in the DCEU, and while it’s frustrating that it’s taken so long, Black Adam arrives on the heels of the critically praised Shazam! The Zachary Levi-led film foreshadowed Teth Adam’s coming and acts as a steady bright point in the DC Extended Universe’s ever-changing landscape.
Shazam is presently in production, but Johnson’s character will not appear as the villain for the time being — though a recent set shot from director David F. Sandberg indicated a possible cameo in the forthcoming film.
What hardships Black Adam had to go through?
Black Adam has undoubtedly had a long and difficult trip to this point, having spent years in development hell. The COVID-19 epidemic struck just as it was about to go into production, causing endless delays. The release date for Black Adam has been pushed back several times. It was originally supposed to premiere this year, but WB decided on a summer 2022 premiere.
