Black Adam (2021 film)
In September 2014, after being considered to play Shazam and Lobo, Dwayne Johnson was cast as Black Adam. The character was intended to be introduced in Shazam!, but by January 2017 the film’s production studios had chosen to divide the narrative to focus on Black Adam’s origin. Johnson, who is also attached as producer, has stated the two characters will cross paths in a future film. Other DC characters, including the Justice Society of America, will factor into the plot of Black Adam. Two of the members were revealed as Hawkman and Doctor Fate. In October 2017, Adam Sztykiel was hired to write the script. Co-producer Hiram Garcia stated the film will be gritty and violent, similar to the comics. In June 2019, Jaume Collet-Serra was announced as director for the film, with Beau Flynn, Johnson, Hiram Garcia, Dany Garcia, and Scott Sheldon attached as producers. In July 2020, Noah Centineo was cast as Atom Smasher. Djimon Hounsou will reprise his role as the wizard Shazam. Principal photography is expected to begin in early 2021, for a scheduled release date of December 22, 2021.
