We’re getting just a little bit closer to the release of the long-anticipated Black Adam film. With DC FanDome coming in a few days, the folks at Discussing Film have dropped an image of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on Twitter. Last year, we covered the Black Adam panel before the film started production.
It was at this panel that The Rock announced the Justice Society of America lineup that would appear in the film. Doctor Fate. Atom Smasher. Cyclone. Hawkman. It has since been announced that Hawkman will be the leader of the JSA.
Black Adam is a character Johnson has been trying to get on the big screen for a long time. In fact, he has said that it has taken a decade, according to Corey Chichizola of Cinema Blend in March 2020. However, now, we’re finally getting the film he always wanted to make.
Going over to the image, it doesn’t show us a lot. Though, we expect a lot of action – because, you know, it’s a Dwayne Johnson film – which is exactly what we want! It will also be incredible to see members of the JSA on the big screen for the first time.
Fingers crossed that we’ll get a Black Adam and Shazam fight! That would be amazing to see, especially after Teth-Adam is mentioned in the first Shazam! film, as the Wizard Shazam’s champion that betrayed him. It will be interesting to see what lead up to that in Black Adam if it happens. Furthermore, it’ll depend on where the story heads.
In conclusion, the panel will reveal more, and we cannot wait to learn more. Hopefully, the cast will give a bit more insight into how the events of the movie will play out and that makes us super excited.
Black Adam arrives in cinemas in July 2022.
