Noah Centineo to Play Atom Smasher in Black Adam

-

Noah Centineo has joined Dwayne Johnson in the cast of DC’s Black Adam, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before actor is set to play Atom Smasher, aka Albert Rothstein, who is known for his power of growth and super strength.

Centineo’s credits include The Fosters, Disney Channel’s How to Build a Better Boy, as well as Netflix’s Sierra Burgess Is a Loser, The Perfect Date., and the sequel To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.

Johnson is reteaming with his Jungle Cruise director Jaume Collet-Serra for Black Adam, which is scheduled to open in theaters on December 22, 2021. Collet-Serra will helm the film based on the DC Comics character for New Line Cinema. Adam Sztykiel wrote the current script.

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.

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.

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.

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.
