Black Adam has been underway for a really long time. The movie has been underway, with Johnson attached to the project, as far back as the year 2007. After various delays and postponements, the DCEU came into play and Warner Bros. brought the movie back to life to make the antihero’s debut, although there are still a few issues to deal with when it’s about the character’s relationship with Shazam, who has already had his own solo outing in 2019.
The film was delayed many times for various reasons, including the coronavirus pandemic. It was reported that the most recent delay was thanks to the MCU’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which needed the soundstages that Black Adam also required for reshoots.
Here’s what Hiram Garcia Had To Say:
In addition to this, producer Hiram Garcia explained, “I think we’re just in a world right now where there was a huge and understandable freeze-up when the [COVID-19] pandemic hit and a lot of productions were put on hold.” He continued, “Now that the industry has really roared back, the pipeline for VFX is so jammed. Obviously, all these superhero movies just require so much VFX, and we’re just in a situation where the majority of the VFX houses are just completely swamped with work.”
The movie is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, and will open in theaters on October 21.
