The Black Adam film is one of those movies we know frighteningly little about. And I only say frighteningly little because DC movies have a bad habit of disappointing people. Still, there's a lot of hype surrounding the Black Adam movie. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is playing the titular lead character, which is good news. That's reason enough to at least give the film a chance. I mean, I've loved most of the DC films anyway, but I understand not everyone shares that opinion. People have reportedly seen some photos from the Black Adam set. These photos revealed Dwayne Johnson in his Black Adam costume. They also revealed the Hawkman armor. We haven't really officially seen either of those things yet. If you're hoping to get a look at them, though... well I have some bad news. It seems like Warner Bros has yanked them all out of existence. Though, if I had to guess I'm sure you could find them somewhere. I have a strong suspicion, anyway.
I haven't seen the photos myself. I was too late to the party, unfortunately, but I've read descriptions of them! Hawkman is reportedly a little hard to make out, but comments on the helmet have been positive. Meanwhile, Black Adam's suit is drawing comparisons to Superman's suit from Man of Steel. If that's true, and I hope it is, that's awesome news. The Man of Steel suit is one of my personal favorites. Now they just need to confirm that we'll be seeing Henry Cavill's Superman go up against Black Adam, and man... fans would lose it.
The Black Adam producer, Danny Garcia, has previously spoken about Dwayne Johnson's suit - and how he looks in it.
"My husband is DJ's strength and conditioning coach, and they were able to get his physique to the right place with so much time before shooting that [set photo]. There wasn't a lot of 'Where are we padding or where are we adding?' and things like that. I've seen him in the full costume and let me tell you — it's a thing!" Garcia previously told Variety.
We'll be getting some official info on Black Adam during the DC FanDome 2021 in a little over a week. Will we get a trailer? I don't know, but I really hope so. This film looks just interesting enough to be the next big DC thing. And again, Dwayne Johson is amazing so I'm freaking ready.
Black Adam is supposed to come out on July 29, 2022.
