Dwayne Johnson’s Movie “Black Adam”: Release Date, Cast, Plot, and everything we need to know!

The Direct

Dwayne, “The Rock” Johnson, has been trying to get a Black Adam movie off the ground for years, and now it finally seems like his dream is coming true. The Hollywood Reporter revealed on Tuesday that Dwayne had closed deals with both Warner Bros. (who owns DC Comics) and New Line Cinema (who owns the film rights to Black Adam). This means he will star in and produce the upcoming spin-off of superhero movies from Marvel Studios.

Both Marvel Studios’ Captain America: Civil War (2016) and DC Comics’ Suicide Squad (2016) were both box office successes, with each grossing over $700 million worldwide. It’s not unrealistic to assume that this will happen again for the upcoming Black Adam spin-off movie starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

This new film deal comes just after the success of Disney/Marvel Studio’s Doctor Strange (2016). After its release last month, it became the second-highest-grossing film of 2016 so far.

The Black Adam Spin-off:

The Black Adam spin-off is only the latest in a string of successful superhero films from Warner Bros. The Hollywood Reporter also reported that Dwayne has signed on to star as Black Adam and produce alongside Hiram Garcia, Beau Flynn, and Dany Garcia.

The Black Adam spin-off is scheduled to be released on January 18th, 2019, with production set in early 2018. This will be Dwayne’s fifth movie since he signed a contract for up to seven movies with Warner Bros. last year after leading their hit Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (2017).

Latest News:

In addition, there are also rumors that Dwayne could star as Shazam! in New Line Cinema and WB Animation’s live-action adaptation of the character. If this happens then, it will make sense that his next project might not have him starring or producing but rather just acting as Black Adam instead.

The Black Adam movie will be set in the same universe as Shazam! and have Dwayne Johnson playing Black Adam. The film is scheduled to release on January 18th, 2022, with production beginning early next year.

Black Adam has been confirmed for a standalone Netflix series but it hasn’t been given an official release date yet. It’s also unclear whether or not other DC heroes like Billy Batson aka Shazam, who play key roles in this storyline, will appear at all.” – Instagrammed by Warner Bros. Pictures’ Official Account (January 16, 2018)
