Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to confirm that he’s currently back on the set, filming the Black Adam reshoots for Warner Bros. Pictures’ highly-anticipated superhero film. This comes nearly a year after the live-action DC film had completed its principal photography.
It is currently scheduled to arrive in theaters on October 21, pitting it directly against Universal Pictures’ romantic comedy Ticket to Paradise starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts.
Black Adam features the introduction of Dwayne Johnson as Teth-Adam or the titular anti-hero, whose background story was first teased during 2019’s Shazam! This marks the character’s live-action debut after only appearing in animated shows and films such as Young Justice.
Joining Johnson is Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Aldis Hodge as Hawkman. Other cast members include Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, James Cusati-Moyer, Bodhi Sabongui, Mo Amer, and Uli Latukefu in undisclosed roles.
Based on the DC Comics character created by Otto Binder and C.C. Beck, the film is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (The Shallows, Jungle Cruise) from a screenplay written by Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshiryani. Producers are Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions along with FlynnPicturesCo’s Beau Flynn, with Scott Sheldon overseeing the project for FlynnPictureCo.
