Black Adam Will Be A “Fun and Edgy Anti-Hero Film,” Promises Director

Black Adam is on the verge of becoming a reality now, with the most awaited DC film set to hit the theatres next summer. Debuting a really impressive teaser/trailer last month at DC FanDome’s virtual convention, the footage undeniably gave fans a hint of what to expect from the Dwayne Johnson starrer film. Even now, there’s a lot more scope for Black Adam to grow and as per its producer Hiram Garcia, the wait for the film will be more than worth it. While talking to Variety during the premiere of Netflix’s Red Notice, Garcia stated that the director’s cut for the movie is already in existence and that it will be a “fun” and “big” take on the DC Comics anti-hero.

“We just saw the director’s cut. I’m so excited,” Garcia explained. “Look, you get into this business and you have dreams of stuff you want to make, but I’ve always wanted to make a superhero [movie]. All of us – me, Dany [Garcia], and DJ have had a dream of doing it. So to finally have our superhero movie and to see the first cut of it and realize that we’ve got something special here? I think the fans are going to love it, and I think with the piece we released at DC FanDome, we also showed everyone the tone we’re playing in, where it’s going to be fun, but Black Adam is a very different kind of antihero than what we’re used to. He’s very different from Shazam!, he’s very different from Superman. If you cross him, a lot of people don’t walk away from that. So that’s fun for us, to have DJ playing a character like that which he typically hasn’t played before. Look, I think you’re going to love it. The movie’s big and it’s a lot of fun. But it’s got a lot of edge to it, and I think the world is ready for that.”

Director Looks Forward To Unleashing Black Adam In A BIG WAY

Directed by the Jungle Cruise director Jaume Collett-Serra, Black Adam will also be featuring Noah Centinho as Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fatte, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone and Sarah Shahi as Adrianna Tomaz. Marwan Kenzari, Mohammed Amer, Uli Latukefu, Bodhi Sabongui and James Cusati-Moyer have also been cast in various roles in the film.

“We’re just so excited for you and the fans to see the film, because this cast and crew worked exceptionally hard to just make this film feel fresh, and really introduce a new group of incredible characters to the world,” Garcia explained in an interview with Collider earlier this year. “All while making sure we unleash Black Adam on the DC Universe in a big way. This guy is an absolute force of nature. A force of nature that dishes out justice the way he wants. Unfortunately, not many people walk away from the kind of justice he delivers. We mean it when we say the hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is going to change. When Black Adam arrives, everything’s going to change.”

Black Adam will hit the theatres on July 29, 2022.
