Hiram Garcia, producer of the Dwayne Johnson film Black Adam confirmed that character spin-offs are in development.
After many years in development, Black Adam will finally make his big screen debut in an upcoming DC Extended Universe film. Dwayne Johnson is set to bring the character to life for the first time in this live-action film, which will explore the origin of one of the most unique characters in the DC Comics canon.
Along with the introduction of Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam, the film will also include the Justice Society of America among other characters. Given the expansive nature of what the new DC film brings to the table, it’s not surprising to hear that multiple character spin-offs are in development from Dwayne Johnson’s production company, Seven Bucks Productions.
According to producer Hiram Garcia, Black Adam will be introducing characters that could have their own standalone stories to tell. He tells Collider:
“So, obviously, we introduce a lot of new characters in here, and a lot of these characters are big fan favorites, so we’re currently working on spinoffs that we can do for some of those characters. We’re fleshing it all out, and we have very big ambitions for it. The priority is always making sure we launch this movie right, but we’re always going to be ready when the time comes to be able to jump into those other movies and tell those stories when the fans want.”
It will be interesting to see who will be the breakout characters of DC’s Black Adam. Obviously as the titular character as well as one of the biggest movie stars on the planet, one can only imagine the screen presence Dwayne Johnson will bring, but characters such as Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan) and Hawkman (Aldis Hodge) bring a lot of interest to the table. We will learn more once the film hits theaters this summer.
In addition to Dwayne Johnson, DC’s Black Adam stars Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate. Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, James Cusati-Moyer, and Bodhi Sabongui are also on board in undisclosed roles. Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions are producing the movie with Beau Flynn of FlynnPictureCo. FlynnPictureCo’s Scott Sheldon serves as an executive producer.
Black Adam is set to hit theaters on July 29, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the highly-anticipated Dwayne Johnson DC Film, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content.
