It’s finally here! DC’s Black Adam movie finally has a release date along with an official concept art for the movie. Read on to find out everything we know till now about the movie.
Black Adam’s History Of Being Stuck In Development
After being in development for a very long time, Black Adam is finally going to hit theatres in December 2021. Dwayne Johnson has been connected with the project for a long and finally his wait has paid off. Actually, it was five years ago that Dwayne Johnson confirmed his casting as Black Adam. The original plan back then was to introduce him as a villain in the Shazam! movie. But the plan was eventually changed and Black Adam was given a solo movie. Shazam was given a different villain, the same one who saw in the movie which released this year.
Dwayne shared the first look art by Jim Lee and BossLogic. Along with the art, Johnson has confirmed the official release date to be December 22, 2021. Check out his post below:

The Man in Black ⚡️ Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero. Having cool superpowers, fighting for what’s right and always protecting the people. It all changed for me, when I was 10yrs old and was first introduced to the greatest superhero of all time – SUPERMAN. As a kid, Superman was the hero I always wanted to be. But, a few years into my fantasy, I realized that Superman was the hero, I could never be. I was too rebellious. Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority. Despite my troubles, I was still a good kid with a good heart – I just liked to do things my way. Now, years later as a man, with the same DNA I had as a kid – my superhero dreams have come true. I’m honored to join the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to become, BLACK ADAM. BLACK ADAM is blessed by magic with the powers equal to SUPERMAN, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people – but he does it his way. Truth and justice – the BLACK ADAM way. This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together. BLACK ADAM 12.22.21 ⚡️ Huge thank you to my friends, @jimlee and @bosslogic for this first time ever bad ass collaboration.
What To Expect From DC’s Black Adam Movie
Although little is known about DC’s Black Adam movie till now but it can be safely assumed that it is going to be an origin movie. The movie will be helmed by Disney’s Jungle Cruise director Jaume Collet-Serra. We are hoping that it will begin production in July 2020, as was originally planned. Fans should expect to hear more casting news related to the movie soon. But it’s unclear as of now if Shazam will appear in Black Adam in any capacity. We think that DC/WB would first want to establish him on his own before doing a crossover with Shazam. With Black Adam, Warner Bros has now added a third DC movie to their slate for 2021. Black Adam will be joining Matt Reeves’ The Batman and James Gunn’s Suicide Squad.
Black Adam hits theatres on 22 December 2021.
