Fans of the DC Extended Universe have had much to cheer recently. With the expected release of Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League and sequel of Suicide Squad, morale is high. With the latest movie expecting a fantastic release being Black Adam. It would mark DC’s further commitment to exploring the anti-hero theme. Learning from the popularity of Birds of Prey, this might prove to be a masterstroke.
The project has been in the wings for a long time now. Depicting the flawed superhero is always going to be challenging. So now is as good a time as ever. Black Adam comes with a strong line-up of actors. It will be looking to redo some of the early mistakes which had plagued the DCEU so far.
Black Adam: When is the Expected Release?
Black Adam is all set to hit the theaters on December 22, 2021. Filming for the movie is going to commence this July. But understandably, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it gets canceled.
However, that won’t be for long, and work should begin early next year. That would leave the film with less than a year to complete the project. While a particular section feels it might not be enough, the creators are optimistic about sticking to the schedule.
Black Adam: Who are in it?
DC made no secret of the fact who would be starring in the Jaume Collet-Serra film. Dwayne, “The Rock” Johnson, has been around the project since 2014. Given the actor’s physique and current exploits, nobody would argue about the choice.
The creators have been secretive about the details of the film. Only one other member of the cast is out so far. He is Noah Centineo, starring as Atom Smasher. Indeed, we will get more details about the cast once the film begins shooting.
Black Adam: Who is He?
Black Adam has had a chequered past. He made his debut as a predecessor of Captain Marvel. Son of an Egyptian pharaoh, the superhero was bestowed power by Shazam. However, corrupted by the enormity of his newfound capabilities, he has locked away. And was resurrected centuries later as the antagonist to Billy Batson.
Since the 2000s, though, there has been a change in the narrative of the character. He has been recast as a corrupted anti-hero. With the upcoming movie, he is deciding to move along this path and clear his name. Black Adam is initially expecting to appear in the Shazam movie, before DC changing its heart. That has left the fans with a solo outing of the anti-hero, not that anybody is complaining.
Black Adam: When will the Trailer be out?
The movie will get underway early next year. So fans might have to wait until next summer to get the first glimpse of Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam.
DCEU finally seems to be in a position to challenge MCU. With the introduction of more complex superhero movies, fans will have a lot to cheer about. The franchise has quite a few titles ready for release. And the first signs show they are going to be epic.
