It seems like it was a lifetime ago when WB/DC announced Dwayne Johnson was going to be joining the DC Cinematic Universe. Then we heard he would be portraying the part of the not too well known villain “Black Adam.”
Justice League happened and shat the bed, HARD. Now DC Films looks to rebound with more fun and enjoyable films leaving behind the dark and gloomy Zack Snyder-verse. Now that Shazam is done and garnering a lot of hype, our attention turns back to Johnson’s Black Adam.
Warner Bros.’ planned Dwayne Johnson-starring Black Adam film is “definitely happening,” according to producer Hiram Garcia – who also says the film now has a completed script.
“Black Adam is definitely happening. We’re actually very deep into a script on it right now, which is coming along really well. I’m really excited with the story we’ve crafted,” Garcia told Collider. “So where we are now with Black Adam is we just got our latest script [from Adam Sztykiel]. We’re doing some revisions on it. We’re extremely excited about it, the studio’s very excited about it. And I’m telling you man, as a comic book fan, when this thing comes out, it is going to be amazing (laughs). This is the fanboy in me talking to you, it’s going to deliver on the goods of everything you’d want to see Black Adam do, he’s going to be doing in this film.”
No projected release date for Black Adam has been announced.
