The Black Adam character was originally meant to be introduced to audiences in 2019’s Shazam movie. However, DC decided to give Dwayne Johnson his own standalone movie.

“This film, this universe has been a gigantic passion project of mine for a very long time,” Johnson said. “The film has without question some of the biggest action sequences I have ever been a part of.”

Black Adam boasts Juame Collet-Serra as it’s director. Collet-Serra worked with Johnson on Disney’s summer blockbuster Jungle Cruise.

The teaser also gave us a look at some other cast members that would star in the movie. We got Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, Sarah Shahi as Adrianna Tomaz aka Isis and Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate. 

Speaking in an Interview with Collider, the film’s producer, Hiram Garcia talked about how new technology was used to showcase Black Adam’s superpowers.

He said, “This is a character with amazing abilities. He has super speed, can fly, and has world breaking strength to name a few. We wanted to make sure moviegoers feel that throughout the entire movie. You’re not going to see him use super speed just once and then it stops, this is part of his arsenal. It’s common to see abilities fall to the wayside when dealing with characters like that but one of our many goals was to keep continuity there and push the bar in terms of how we do it. For example, the technology we’re using to make Black Adam fly has never been done before. It’s completely unique. It was critical for us to ensure that it felt special, authentic, and real. Jaume took that to heart. Our special effects’ team are Oscar winners, and we certainly put them to work.”

Black Adam opens in cinemas worldwide on July 29, 2022.
