Sarah Shahi joins the cast of Black Adam
Casting of the Dwayne Johnson-starrer is expected to be completed this year, with the shooting planned to commence in early 2021
Rush Hour 3 actor Sarah Shahi is the latest name to be added to the cast list of Dwayne Johnson's upcoming Black Adam movie.
Shahi will be playing the role of a university professor, who will also lead the Kahndaq's resistance force as a freedom fighter.
Despite being famously known as Shazam's archnemesis, in the Johnson iteration, Black Adam will be depicted as an anti-hero, with his story beginning thousands of years ago in Kahndaq, where he lived as a slave. The film will also follow the introduction of the Justice Society of America to the DC Extended Universe.
Black Adam will also feature well-known superheroes like Doctor Fate and Cyclone and we already know that actors Noah Centineo and Aldis Hodge are playing the roles of Atom-Smasher and Hawkman, respectively.
Casting is expected to be completed by this year, with the shooting planned to commence in early 2021
