Dwayne Johnson’s “Black Adam” to be released on July 29, 2022.
Hollywood superstar Dwayne Johnson has announced the release date of his highly anticipated film “Black Adam” on Twitter. The Rock took over Times Square to announce that “Black Adam” will officially release on July 29, 2022.
“Disruptive and unstoppable global force of a message from the man in black himself. BLACK ADAM is coming on July 29, 2022. The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change,” he captioned the video.
Black Adam is the second New Line/DC film following 2019’s critical and commercial hit Shazam, with the two characters, Shazam and Black Adam, being archrivals in the DC Universe. The project is headed toward an April start in Atlanta, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Black Adam also stars Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate.
Jaume Collet-Serra, who also directed Johnson alongside Emily Blunt in Disney’s Jungle Cruise, will direct. Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions are producing Black Adam with Beau Flynn of FlynnPictureCo. FlynnPictureCo’s Scott Sheldon will serve as EP.
Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani wrote the latest draft. Adam Sztykiel wrote the previous draft.
While Warner Bros. 2021 theatrical slate is going in theaters and on HBO Max day-and-date, the major studio recently hammered a 45-day exclusive theatrical window with No. 2 U.S. exhibitor Regal for their 2022 slate. The news last week indicated that Warner Bros. was returning to a theatrical distribution first window plan for their movies before they arrive on their streaming service.
