Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson just shared the official release date for us upcoming DC Comics film, “Black Adam.” The Warner Bros. Pictures film will star Johnson as the villainous character.
Just last week, we gleaned some casting news about Pierce Brosnan playing Dr. Fate for the film!
“Black Adam“ is shaping up to be an interesting film indeed. Along with Johnson in the title role of Black Adam and Brosnan as Dr. Fate, the film will also star Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.
Jaume Collet-Serra has been tapped to direct, having just completed another Dwayne Johnson project, “The Jungle Cruise,” for Disney.
Adam Sztykiel wrote the first draft of the script, which now has revisions from Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani.
Originally, the “Shazam!” adjacent project was going to release in December of 2021.
We’ll let you know what we hear about this and other upcoming notable projects.
“Black Adam” will release on July 29th, 2022.
