Black Adam is a spin-off film to 2019's Shazam!. Black Adam first appeared in DC Comics in the 1940s as a power-corrupt villain, who slowly became an anti-hero by the 2000s, and is known for his disregard of rules and conventions.
The upcoming film also features Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone. Notably, Pierce Brosnan was just recently cast as Dr Fate in the film.
Black Adam is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who also directed Johnson in Disney’s Jungle Cruise alongside Emily Blunt. The script is written by Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani, based on a previous draft by Adam Sztykiel.
Johnson is also producing the movie with Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia through their Seven Bucks Productions, and Beau Flynn through FlynnPictureCo.
