Black Adam to wow viewers with the use of unique and never-before-seen special effects, says producer

Black Adam producer Hiram Garcia, in an interview with Collider, has announced that the movie will feature the use of technology that has never been made use of before.

The producer made mention of how the movie’s special effects team, who have won Academy Awards in the field, was ‘put to work’ so that the lead character’s powers would feel authentic as well as special when displayed on screen. Garcia also explained how the new technology that was used was ‘necessary’ to not only fully exhibit the full extent of the character’s numerous abilities, but to also steer clear of the failings of other movies in the superhero genre that had to deal with the same.

During the course of the interview Hiram also mentioned how the character of Black Adam figured in the extended DC film universe, saying that although they were presently focusing on developing the character’s own world, he does exist in the same universe as Shazam!, another popular DC superhero.

Regarding the film’s PG-13 rating, he defended it saying that it was decided in accordance with the team and even with the rating it was possible to fully showcase the extent of Black Adam’s powers.

Dwayne Johnson, who plays the titular character in the film, had mentioned how grueling filming for the movie was, calling it ‘the hardest undertaking’ of his career.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, Black Adam is based on the DC Comics character of the same name. In addition to Johnson, Noah Centineo, Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Shahi and Aldis Hodge also feature in the film.

Black Adam is slated for a release in the United States next year.
