Black Adam Release Date and Concept Art Revealed!

-

Dwayne Johnson has revealed both the Black Adam release date and first concept art today! The film is scheduled for December 22, 2021, which is just five days after James Cameron’s first Avatar sequel is hitting theaters. Along with the art created by Jim Lee and BossLogic, Johnson says:

“The Man in Black ⚡️
Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero. Having cool superpowers, fighting for what’s right and always protecting the people.
It all changed for me, when I was 10yrs old and was first introduced to the greatest superhero of all time – SUPERMAN.
As a kid, Superman was the hero I always wanted to be.
But, a few years into my fantasy, I realized that Superman was the hero, I could never be.
I was too rebellious. Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority.
Despite my troubles, I was still a good kid with a good heart – I just liked to do things my way.
Now, years later as a man, with the same DNA I had as a kid – my superhero dreams have come true.
I’m honored to join the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to become, BLACK ADAM.
BLACK ADAM is blessed by magic with the powers equal to SUPERMAN, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line.
He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people – but he does it his way.
Truth and justice – the BLACK ADAM way.
This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together.

Filming is scheduled to begin in July of 2020. Johnson is reteaming with his Jungle Cruise director Jaume Collet-Serra for Black Adam. Collet-Serra will helm the film based on the DC Comics character for New Line Cinema. The Black Adam production is a priority for the studio following the success of Shazam!, which has brought in $365 million worldwide. Shazam! was directed by David F. Sandberg and stars Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Djimon Hounsou.

Beau Flynn of FlynnPictureCo will produce along with Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions. Scott Sheldon will oversee for FlynnPicturesCo. Adam Sztykiel wrote the latest draft of the script.

Johnson previously said the villain and antihero Black Adam was originally supposed to have debuted in Shazam!, but it wasn’t working with them having to tell the origin stories of both Shazam! and Black Adam.

Black Adam is based on the DC Comics character created by Otto Binder and C.C. Beck. Black Adam first appeared in the first issues of Fawcett Comics’ The Marvel Family in December 1945, and began to appear in the Shazam! comics in the 1970s.
