DC’s new film ‘Black Adam’ has been scheduled to be released in Northern America on October 21!
However, “Black Adam” was originally a supporting character in “Shazam!”, a film originally planned to tell the origin story of both Black Adam and Shazam.
Dwayne Johnson prompted the splitting of the origin stories of “Black Adam” and “Shazam” into two separate films.
At the time Johnson signed on to play Black Adam in “Shazam!”, he got the first draft of the movie as a combination of Black Adam and Shazam: a movie with two origin stories, as the script originally was.
Yet as he read on, his instincts told him ‘we can’t make this movie like this, it would be incredibly damaging to Black Adam.
Based on this belief, he continued to lobby for his anti-hero Black Adam to be made into an independent film, and he “made a phone call”.
On the phone, he shared his “unpopular” opinion, saying, “I think you should do Shazam!” the way you want to do it, and then the Black Adam part should be separated.
In 2017 DC executives announced their decision to make Shazam and Black Adam into separate major motion pictures.
Star and producer Dwayne Johnson has been involved in these projects since 2008 and has seen his Hollywood profile grow significantly in the years since then.
