Dwayne Johnson restated that production on Black Adam will begin in summer 2020 in a post on social media.

While fans have known that Dwayne Johnson would be portraying Black Adam for some time, production on the DC villain’s standalone film took some time moving forward. Today, Dwayne Johnson shared a new photo on his official Instagram of himself training for his role as the antagonist that offers a glimpse at his incredible physique.

In the caption, Dwayne Johnson noted the production on Black Adam is scheduled to begin production in summer 2020. While Johnson had previously announced the start time frame, some fans might be reassured about the plan to continue with this filming schedule considering the uncertainty about various events and productions in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

Check out the post below.


Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam will introduce Hawkman, Doctor Fate, and the Justice Society of America to the DC Extended Universe. Warner Bros. and DC’s Shazam! was originally going to feature Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam before the decision was made to give the character his own standalone film. Here is the official synopsis for the Shazam! movie:

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quick.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou.

Shazam! is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
