Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam officially wrapped
Black Adam will also introduce DC’s superhero team in the Justice Society of America
After being in the development for years, Dwayne Johnson confirmed on his Instagram that the most-anticipated DC film Black Adam has finally wrapped filming. The upcoming superhero project is currently set to be released theatrically on July 29, 2022.
Although his name circulated in the DCEU universe during the 2000s, it was just a few years ago when Johnson confirmed he intended to play Black Adam on the silver screen. The Zachary Levi-led Shazaam! indirectly set up Adam's arrival and the sequel, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, is currently filming; however, it won't feature Johnson's character as the villain just yet.
Black Adam will also introduce DC’s superhero team in the Justice Society of America, which consists of Hodge as Hawkman, Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher. Sarah Shahi is set as freedom fighter Adrianna Tomaz, while it’s theorized that James Cusati-Moyer will play her brother, Amon.
Meanwhile, Aladdin’s Marwan Kenzari has also joined the film in an unknown role. The film is helmed by Jungle Cruise director Jaume Collet-Serra.
