There was supposed to be a December 2021 release date for Black Adam, but the film’s production company, Warner Bros. Productions, scrapped those plans. The official date for Black Adam’s theatrical debut in theatres is October 21, 2022.
Finally, the long-awaited DCEU addition starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be released to the public. Black Adam, a spinoff and sequel to Shazam, features the famed wrestler and artist in the role of the antihero. The movie has been in the works since 2014, and it will soon be released to the public.
Black Adam Release Date, Cast, Plot, Trailer, And More
Black Adam, a powerful creature on par with Superman, was the first person to defeat the magician Shazam. Adam, in contrast to Zachary Levi’s real hero, has a little more flexible moral compass. The main character of Black Adam has spent a long time in a magical prison and will describe his return to the normal world in the narrative. We have no idea what terrible punishment he has in store for Earth.
Adam is the main attraction, but the film also features cameos from many other beloved characters from the Justice Society of America and the DC Universe. To help you get ready for this amazing new DC Universe movie, we have assembled all the details we know about Black Adam, including the plot, the actors, and the production and release dates.
A Few Words About Black Adam
The filming of Black Adam started in April of 2021 in Atlanta, Georgia. Movie production was originally scheduled to begin in July 2020 but was delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak. On July 15, 2021, Johnson said that filming on the film has concluded and that he was done with his sequences. For the next several weeks, though, filming proceeded without Johnson as they relocated to Los Angeles to finish the movie.
Black Adam will presumably take place in the current day. As a sequel to Shazam!, we may assume that this film takes place soon after the events of that film.
Some sequences in the film are supposedly set about 5 000 years ago, at Kahndaq’s zenith of power. Despite these possible throwback elements, Black Adam will be a very modern take on the character.
Black Adam Scheduled Release Date
The DCEU movie had a tough time with casting issues like COVID-19 and recasting. Nonetheless, the film will be in theatres in October, so fans can finally see what The Rock has cooked up. There was supposed to be a December 2021 release date for Black Adam, but the film’s production company, Warner Bros. Productions, scrapped those plans. The official date for Black Adam’s theatrical debut in theatres is October 21, 2022.
In the film, Dwayne Johnson will play the lead role of Black Adam, a renegade member of the Shazam line who arrives in Kahndaq after a hiatus of 5,000 years. Even before he started acting, Johnson was a cultural icon because of his time as The Rock in wrestling. Among the latest films in which he has appeared were Jumanji, Moana, and Fast Eight.
Atom Smasher, or Al Rothstein, was purportedly performed by Noah Centineo. The actor is well-known for his portrayal of Langston in the 2019 adaptation of Charlie’s Angels and as Peter Kavinsky in the “To All the Boys” film series. Carter Hall, better known as Hawkman, is portrayed by Aldis Hodge, who is well known for his roles as MC Ren in Straight Outta Compton and James Lanier in “The Invisible Man.”
Chicago Fire’s Sarah Shahi will portray the part of Adrianna Tomaz, a professor, and freedom warrior. K Nelson/Dr. Fate is played by Pierce Brosnan, while Cyclone is portrayed by Quintessa Swindell (Euphoria). On the other hand, it is widely assumed that Marwan Kenzari would portray the evil Sabbat, however, this has not been verified.
Black Adam talks on the social media
It was no secret that Johnson had entered the DC Universe; in fact, fans had been anticipating his appearance for years. Now that the official release date has arrived, the public has been unable to contain their enthusiasm, as seen by the nonstop discussion on the various social media platforms. Here are a few tweets with the hashtag #BlackAdams.
Well, listen to this: as the credits roll in DC Super Friends: Super Pets, Superman and Krypto run upon Black Adam and his magnificent dog. As of right now, my best guess is that Black Adam will hit theatres on October 21, 2022. I hope DC Legend of Super-Pets 2 inspires a sequel.
There will be a shift in the DC Universe’s Balance of Power as a result of Black Adam. I can’t wait for the current quo to be challenged by something new, exciting, and original. The answer is, “Yeah Man!” up the rock! Please have Black Adam become the main attraction in DC.

I can’t help but be thrilled about The Rock’s new film, Black Adam, even though he was the first cast in the role eight years ago.
What To Expect From The Black Adam?
During Adam’s period, Kahndaq was a brutal state that employed witchcraft and magic to subjugate its citizens. But when he won the title of Champion, Adam used his newfound power to liberate his people and assume control of Kahndaq.
When Adam’s family was slaughtered, he went from being a hero to a villain, and he unwittingly unleashed the seven deadly sins. After being punished for his misdeeds by exile, Black Adam will see him walk out of prison five thousand years later, at which point he will be determined as ever to return Kahndaq to its former glory.
At this time, it’s unclear how the movie ties in with Shazam! But with the Wizard dead, maybe Adam will be free to go. Black Adam will be reinstated to his throne, even though the movie’s plot is still a secret. As a consequence, Adam and the Justice League might come into conflict with each other. Given the usual conclusion to such stories, a stronger threat will arise, and the heroes will have to band together to rescue the world.
Black Adam movie Guide
Since this is the very first film adaptation of Black Adam, there is no prequel or sequel available online. As Black Adam is a member of the Shazam family, though, there may be some tie-in with that film. Thus, if the audience is encouraged to watch Shazam through streaming.
After several teases and videos, the first official Black Adam trailer finally arrived online on June 8, 2022. After waking up from a 5,000-year slumber, the protagonist in the trailer causes the Justice Society of America to attack him.
Black Adam, when Hawkman argues that Superheroes wouldn’t kill people, says, “Well, I do,” at one point in the trailer. The trailer did not disappoint, as it had plenty of action, comedy, a satirical allusion to the first Iron Man movie, and The Rock as both himself and Black Adam.
