Had a very cool and strategic meeting with the heads of DC about their entire universe. As a hard core DC fan, to get a real sense of the tonal shifts and developments coming in these future movies has me fired up. Something we, as DC fans have all been waiting for for a very long time. Hope, optimism & FUN. Even when talking about the the most ruthless villain/anti-hero of all time finally coming to life. Prepare yourselves DC Universe. #KneelAtHisFeet #OrGetCrushedByHisBoot #BlackAdam⚡️
After a very long wait, Black Adam, a movie based on the American supervillain from DC comics by the same name starring megastar Dwayne Johnson, is expected to start filming before the end of next year.
In a recent interview with Collider, the producer, Hiram Garcia, who can’t contain his excitement after the success of his last superhero movie, Shazam, explains how important was the success of Shazam for them to move forward with Black Adam, who is the nemesis of Shazam. The success gave them a push to get out into the world and create the DC universe.

Great BLACK ADAM⚡️questions from our Q&A. All depends on how you interpret the word “hero”. Growing up the DC villains were always my “heroes”. As evil as they were, they were always my favorite. Still are. Luthor, Joker, Brainiac, Sinestro etc.. and of course the ruthless one, Black Adam. Cooking up some cool, bad ass and fun plans with DC to introduce Black Adam into the Universe. More to come. Great questions. #RockQAndA #BlackAdam⚡️ * link in my bio.
He further informs that Jaume Collet-Serra has closed a deal with Warner Bros for the direction. Now, after an exemplary script, talented director and a popular star in the titular role, they are in the process of assembling the crew and team of filmmakers, post which movie is expected to go in production by the end of 2020.
Black Adam, the fictional character, which is regarded as one of the greatest villains of all time, will undergo a journey in this movie. People will get to witness his growth and evolvement into an antihero. Hiram, who is a fanboy of the DC universe himself, explains that Black Adam is complex. He is not justice for all, but he is not just a villain either. He has a moral compass even if it’s a skewed one. His actions are driven by his family and fuelled by things that happened with him.
The team is going into polishes and tweaks with a great set of storytellers that they have. They have a vision, and they are working towards it.
The wait of Johnson’s fans to see him as Black Adam will finally come to an end very soon, hopefully.
