Dwayne Johnson reveals Black Adam release date moving to summer 2022
Black Adam is officially set to come out on July 29, 2022, after being previously slated for December of this year. The Rock, who will play the antihero, announced the news via a takeover in Times Square on Sunday.
"The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change," he can be heard saying off-camera.
Less than a week ago, Johnson revealed that Black Adam was a few weeks away from starting production. The new release now puts it between DC's The Batman in March and The Flash in November. The new date also puts it in a position to arrive in theaters as opposed to streaming. Disney's fifth Indiana Jones film will premiere the same weekend.
Directed by Jungle Cruise's Jaume Collet-Serra, Black Adam will mark Johnson's debut as the DC character, who, in the comics, is both Shazam's enemy and an antihero attempting to redeem himself. Also set to feature in the film are Noah Centineo (as Atom Smasher), Quintessa Swindell (as Cyclone), Aldis Hodge (as Hawkman), and Pierce Brosnan (as Dr. Fate), plus Sarah Shahi and Marwan Kenzari in unrevealed roles.
