Dwayne Johnson took to social media yesterday to confirm that filming has now wrapped on “Black Adam.” The Instagram post made for fun viewing as the actor held a prize draw on set that saw a $10,000 split between three members of the movie’s crew.
In addition to the light-hearted nature of this project coming to a conclusion. The post also revealed Johnson, suited up as Black Adam, but a cloak stops us from seeing what he looks like in costume. Along with a few other armored actors who could possibly be the first official look at Intergang. Sarah Shahi confirmed before the criminal syndicate would be part of the movie and the main target of Adrianna Tomaz’s team of freedom fighters.
“Honored and proud to say that’s an official wrap on Black Adam,” Johnson said. “I knew many years ago, the opportunity for me to make Black Adam would be a once in a career event. It has been my true honor to go shoulder to shoulder with over 1,000 brilliant and hungry crew of filmmakers and storytellers to bring the antihero known as, Black Adam to life.”This has been one for the ages and easily the hardest labor and toughest grind mentally and physically of my entire career. Worth. Every. Second.”
With the conclusion of filming it seems that an official first look (maybe a Black Adam suit reveal) could be on the horizon. It’s possible that WB and DC might wait till DC Fandome on October 16 later this year, due to no San Diego Comic-Con this month (at least not in the traditional sense).
Johnson will be joined in the film by Sarah Shahi (“Sex/Life”) as Adrianna Tomaz, Aldis Hodge (“Underground,” “The Invisible Man”) as Hawkman, Noah Centineo (“To All the Boys I Love Before,” “Charlie’s Angels”) as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell (“Trinkets,” “Euphoria”) as Cyclone, Pierce Brosnan (“GoldenEye,” “Mamma Mia!”) as Doctor Fate, Marwan Kenzari (“The Old Guard,” “Aladdin”), and Uli Latukefu (“Young Rock”) has been cast in an unspecified role.
Jaume Collet-Serra (“Jungle Cruise”) is directing “Black Adam,” the most recent script of which was written by Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani. Adam Sztykiel wrote the previous draft.
“Black Adam” is expected to hit theaters July 29, 2022.
