When it comes to major ventures from The Rock, there’s still a lot of excitement, but this one is especially thrilling because it’s his initial foray into the superhero movie realm with the movie Black Adam.
Dwayne Johnson revealed in Jan 2020 that he had actually started working on Black Adam. The idea of making movies centered on the iconic superhero from DC Comics has indeed been discussed extensively, but this is only now that the wheels are in motion.
Black Adam material does not really exist that can be transformed into a teaser since the movie has been in the early stages of development, we at best have a clear and definite understanding of what to anticipate from the movie.
With all that insight, we’ve compiled this useful article to keep a record of all that we’ve learned so far about the new movie.
As of 17th June when DC announced its first-ever DC fandom on 22 August 2020. The fans were thrilled about this event. It was a 24-hour long convention and it’s virtual because of the pandemic. It’s the first-ever of its kind and DC used this platform to unveil some details on much-anticipated projects like Justice League Snyder cut which was released in 2021 on HBO Max, CW, and DC universe projects that are still in the pipeline. The adrenaline rush of the fans spiked when James Gunn, the director of the Suicide Squad sequel appeared there with the whole squad of his upcoming Suicide Squad sequel.
But the talk of the show was the first-ever adaptation of DC Comics’ famous antihero ‘Black Adam’ which is going to be played by Dwayne Johnson A.K.A ‘The Rock’. So let’s dive into more details about the movie and how it’s going to be played out.

It was a jaw-dropping moment for most of us.
The anticipation of Black Adam was from 2008. But only after the release of Shazam, we were sure that the Shazam arch-nemesis AKA Black Adam is not far behind. The Black Adam is going to be released in 2022. And it’s still a year until we can see our favorite Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam on the big screen.
Dwayne Johnson AKA ‘The Rock’ told his fans that he had wanted this role since 2008 and only in 2014, he was able to get it. It shows Dwayne Johnson’s keen interest in this character. We hope that his performance will meet his excellent dedication. And for us fans just one more good news in these dreadful times of pandemic.
Black Adam Trailer
The movie is still in the pre-production stage but DC announced a new animated teaser during the DC fandom event. There’s not a lot of official footage out there but we might get news from the cast and the crew. And it’s not a bad idea to hope for some more awesome surprises from DC.
The film debuted a slew of original artwork at a unique Dwayne Johnson-hosted Black Adam panel at DC Fandom in August 2020, showcasing what’s to follow.

Many specifics about Black Adam, like all big comic book films, are indeed being held under wraps for the foreseeable future, but we’ve heard a lot about the venture across months.
The lead part of the motion picture like any other comic book standalone film would be the one named in the name, but he is far from alone in the story.
Dwayne Johnson takes center stage in Black Adam, but in the tale, he’ll be pitted against the first grown-up version of the vigilante squad known as the ‘Justice Society’.
Director of Black Adam
Although you may not recognize the name, there is a decent possibility you’re acquainted with Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra.
Collet-Serra has a diverse filmography that contains the revival of House of Wax, the horror movie Orphan, and The Shallows.
Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt star with his most recent movie, the Disney ‘ Jungle Cruise’, and the pair obviously got together well on set, as they are joining up for the DC Extended Empire smash.
The director clearly has to work around the big responsibility to bring the famous character of the DC universe on the big screen because Black Adam is the arch-nemesis of the Shazam and Warner bros are clearly planning a face-off between them in the foreseeable future, so for the sake to keep the anticipation high until that brawl, the first appearance of Black Adam has to be massive.

Cast of Black Adam
Here’s the list of amazing and excellent cast members that are going to appear in the movie Black Adam.
Black Adam played by the Dwayne Johnson
Black Adam was invented by Otto Binder and C.C. Beck is among the many well-known super-villains in the DC universe. He is mainly Shazam’s adversary and arch-rival.
The movie begins generations earlier, with the lead working as a servant in a historic nation called Kahndaq, to investigate the subject’s roots.
The magician Shazam bestows immense strength upon Adam, assuming that he has the potential to be a great fighter for the better but Adam ends up using it with extreme cruelty.
He is vanquished and imprisoned after centuries of chaos, but he emerges after 5 thousand years old to cause mayhem in the world today.

Apart from The Rock, Noah Centineo was also the only star in the Black Adam team for some time, with the studio making people involved slightly earlier on that the brilliant actor from ‘The perfect Date’ is entering a DC Comics film to portray a totally awesome role.
Atom Smasher, whose real name is Adam Rothstein, is a metahuman with the power to rise to 60 feet tall due to his family heritage – his ancestor was a nuclear scientist-turned-reluctant supervillain.
He becomes smart and more dominant as he grows large.
Further than the assumption that he’ll be a part of the Justice Society and will also be fighting tooth and nail to kill the title character central character, we don’t understand anything at all regarding how Atom Smasher will be represented in Black Adam, so we’re eager to learn some.
Hawkman played by Aldis Hodge
Considering that Black Adam will use the already famous interpretation of the story. The film will introduce viewers to Carter Hall, an archaeologist who learns that he is a result of a larger series of reincarnations that began with an Egyptian dispute here between a royal and a priest.
He wears a suit made of a substance known as Nth metal that he can manipulate consciously so this allows him the power to fly as well as improved senses.
While his outfit is one of the weirder models in DC Comics, translating the role for the feature film may prove difficult, Black Adam’s benefit is that the film has cast a super gifted performer to portray the character.
The Cyclone played by Quintessa Swindell
Cyclone a.k.a. Black Adam is one of the Justice Society representatives who will feature in Black Adam.
Maxine Hunkel is really the only one who has never seen a real-time adaptation previously, which makes it even more interesting to see who gets the part and leaves their mark.
Cyclone, like Atom Smasher, is a heritage icon in the sense that she is the descendant of the classic Red Tornado, Abigail “Ma” Hunkel, and she achieves her superhuman abilities when T.O. Morrow, the evil creator of the robot Red Tornado, infuses her with nanomaterials.
She has the power to control airwaves that she utilizes to float and fight with.
Doctor Fate played by Pierce Brosnan
‘Doctor Fate’s origins in Comic Books can be traced back to a man called Kent Nelson, who finds the grave of a wizard called Nabu the Wise’ and learns the magical arts as a way of combating wickedness.
After Kent Nelson’s debut in 1940, there were several unique iterations of the role, however, what unites them all is a set of exceptional talents that can bring on a display in Black Adam.
The film would be the hero’s first live-action appearance since he was recently worked by Brent Strait.
Black Adam Release date
Black Adam was initially scheduled for a 2021 launch, but the decision was taken once Warner Bros realized the extent of the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on the filmmaking process.
The company had to briefly exclude the film from their lineup of forthcoming DC movies after the shooting was moved back from autumn 2020 to spring 2021. However, in March 2021, a major update order was made, and audiences can now look forward to seeing the Black Adam movie on July 29, 2022.
