Joker and Black Adam cinematographer Lawrence Sher has said that Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming film will be more traditional then DC’s previous supervillain film.
Last year Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker shocked audiences all around the world in multiple ways. Joker ultimately became the most profitable DC film ever made, earning over $1B on a relatively tiny budget of $55M. The film has since earned star Joaquin Phoenix a Golden Globe for Best Actor and eleven Acadamy Award nominations. One of these nominations was for Best Cinematography for Lawrence Sher who is now preparing to shoot Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming film, Black Adam.
During a recent interview, the cinematographer for the Dwayne Johnson film talked about how different the film would be different than Joker. Mainly, the upcoming Dwayne Johnson film would be more traditional and based on the comics while Joker was more of an original product:
“The good news is we don’t shoot until July. So I’m just getting into the research and development phase of discovering how it will look. It’s super important to me because every time I set off to make a movie or a new project, I always feel as if I want it to be better than the last thing I worked on. I’m really excited about Black Adam because it’s different than Joker in that it’s slightly more traditional insomuch as it’s really drawing from the comics.”
