Dwayne Johnson shares a video from the set of Black Adam celebrating the end of filming and thanking the cast and crew for all their hard work.
Dwayne Johnson shares a Black Adam set video celebrating the end of filming. The upcoming DCEU film will reunite Johnson with Jungle Cruise director Jaume Collet-Serra and center on his titular antihero previously known as Teth-Adam, a slave from Kahndaq who is granted superpowers by the ancient wizard Shazam. After abusing his newly found powers, Adam spends multiple millennia in prison and goes on to become the archnemesis of the superhero Shazam.
With so few plot details to work with, it’s unclear how much of this mythology Black Adam will adapt. Given the character’s connection to Shazam, he was originally planned to debut in the 2019 DCEU film Shazam!, but this plan was scrapped in favor of a solo star vehicle for Johnson, who is currently one of the biggest box office draws working today. The film has assembled a decent ensemble around him with Pierce Brosnan, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, and Quintessa Swindell all starring as members of the Justice Society of America, though it’s unclear if they will act as allies or adversaries for the title character.
Black Adam began filming in April and there have been plenty of teases throughout the production process. Now, The Rock confirms that filming is finished in a video recorded on the set in front of a giant LED screen. In a heartfelt thank you to the cast and crew, the actor called the movie a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will define his career. Watch the Black Adam set video below:
Johnson shared another video a week ago announcing that Black Adam had entered its final week of production and right on schedule, the DCEU production has now officially wrapped filming. Black Adam has surely had a long and tough road getting to this point as it spent years stuck in development hell. Once it was finally ready to enter production, the COVID-19 pandemic hit which caused indefinite delays. Black Adam’s release date was pushed back multiple times. At one point, it was scheduled to debut this year, but WB settled on a summer 2022 premiere.
Once Black Adam began filming, however, it didn’t experience any further delays, a notable accomplishment amidst the still ongoing global pandemic. Not that production has wrapped, the wait for the first live-action look at Johnson’s costume is still ongoing, which will likely be followed by a teaser trailer of some sort. With DC FanDome being held again this fall, this would be an opportune time to debut these first looks at Black Adam.
