When it was first announced that D.C. Comics was creating a movie about Black Adam, the villain of the Shazam! comic series, there was much speculation about who would play him. Some people thought that Denzel Washington would be a good choice for the role, while others felt that Idris Elba would be better, but it turns out that the man for the job is Dwayne Johnson!

DC’s Black Adam Delayed News Update

Firstly, right after we learned that Black Adam got pushed back on its release from July to October, we learned about the reasons behind it! The intel was dropped to the public by the movie’s producer, Hiram García. So, what’s the delay? It basically comes down to Visual Effects.

DC’s Black Adam Delayed News: It’s the Visual Effects!

Since Visual Effects are integral to a production like Black Adam, it’s only logical that they want to give as much detail for this production as possible. As it turns out, with the bulk of all production houses recovering from the COVID pandemic, they’re up to their necks in work. Consequently, finding a production house that will provide DC’s Black Adam with such intensive visual effects is costly and time-consuming. Hence, the delay.

Who is Behind Black Adam?

Jaume Collet Serra will direct this upcoming feature film. At this point, you might remember him from his work in Jungle Cruise. As for the cast members, we have Noah Centineo playing Atom Smasher and Aldis Hodge playing Hawkman. Also, Cyclone will be played by Quintessa Swindell, and Pierce Brosnan will play doctor Fatte.

We have Mohammed Amer, James Cusati-Moyer, Sarah Shari, Marwan Kenzari, Bodhi Sabongui, and Uli Latukefu rounding up the cast in roles not yet confirmed to the press. Still, Black Adam is a go after nearly a decade in pre-production! What’s sure is this: With the next round of movies dropped by DC Films, they plan on competing big with their main rival in the superhero movie business. And that’s the industry titan Marvel Studios, currently owned by the Walt Disney Company.

If anything, DC Films will revamp its strategy to try and capture a market share of the fans’ attraction towards some of their superheroes and lore. Can they do it? We will just have to wait and see. Until then, we have to wait until Black Adam hits the theaters.
