Actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson took to social media to announce a wrap up on his upcoming film set in the DC universe, Black Adam. He tweeted that Black Adam had been one of the hardest films he has worked in, both mentally and physically and went on to thank the cast and crew, including the director Jaume Collet-Serra. In a video, he expressed his excitement regarding fans watching the film.
Johnson's statement read as, “That a wrap on BLACK ADAM. Incredible journey. Hardest undertaking of my entire career physically & mentally. Worth every second. Boundless gratitude to my 1,000+ crew members, actors and director, Jaume Collet-Serra." He also added that the heirarchy of power in the DC Universe is changing.
The Jaume Collet-Serra directorial packs quite a bit of star power as it includes the likes of Pierce Brosnan, Noah Centineo, Quintessa Swindell, Sarah Shahi and Aldis Hodge, starring as members of the Justice Society of America. Following the success of 2019’s Shazam!, this is the second New Line/ DC film.
The actor who is on a Press Tour for his film, Jungle Cruise, along with Emily Blunt currently, will be essaying the role of the antihero, a slave from Kahndaq. When he abuses his superpowers granted by the wizard, Shazam, he ends up spending over millennia in prison and subsequently, goes on to become superhero Shazam’s nemesis.
Like most projects, Black Adam’s production was also delayed due to the COVID-19 induced pandemic. Dwayne Johnson will be seen later this year in Red Notice alongside Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot on Netflix.
The film is slated for a theatrical release on July 29, 2022.
