Black Adam has floated in and out of DC Extended Universe news for a few years – we now have a first look at the production.
The project is being helmed by director Jaume Collet-Serra (The Commuter, The Shallows). Here’s the first look at Dwayne Johnson as the anti-hero and Shazam’s main nemesis, as well as Dr. Fate and others. Given the character’s place in the DC universe we will probably (I hope) be getting an Zachary Levi vs Dwayne Johnson movie at some point. Based on concept art we’ll be getting a different Shazam fight in this movie.
This first look includes on set footage, interviews, and concept art – all of which looks great. Really hoping it continues to look great when it hits the big screen.
Ladies & gents…
Enjoy your WORLD EXCLUSIVE first look⚡️
He is ruthless.
He is unstoppable.
He is the reason the hierarchy of power in the DC UNIVERSE is about to change.
He is #BLACKADAM
