Dwayne Johnson reveals new ‘Black Adam’ release date

The Hollywood star and previous wrestler has actually revealed that his DC Comics motion picture “Black Adam” will now debut in July 2022.

Johnson, who plays the effective bad guy trying to redeem himself, required to Instagram on Sunday to share video footage from Times Square, revealing an animated graphic of the motion picture plastered throughout the New york city landmark’s digital screens.

As the best date appears in flashing neon lights, a threatening narration states: “The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change.”

“A disruptive and unstoppable global force of a message from the man in black himself. ‘Black Adam’ is coming July 29, 2022,” the caption on the Instagram post checks out.

“Black Adam” will mark Johnson’s launching as the DC character, who is the opponent of Shazam — played by Zachary Levi in the DC Extended Universe.

Exposing the task in 2019, Johnson stated the function of Black Adam was “unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career.”

“As a kid, Superman was the hero I always wanted to be. But, a few years into my fantasy, I realized that Superman was the hero, I could never be. I was too rebellious. Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority,” he composed in an Instagram post.

He included that Black Adam is “blessed by magic with the powers equal to SUPERMAN, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people – but he does it his way.

“Black Adam” was previously slated for December of this year but was taken off the Warner Bros. release schedule back in October 2020. Warner Bros., like CNN, is owned by WarnerMedia.

The new release date means the antihero movie will arrive the same weekend as Disney’s fifth “Indiana Jones” film.
Confirmation of the release date comes days after it was announced that former 007 actor Pierce Brosnan has joined the “Black Adam” cast as Doctor Fate. The movie also stars Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone and Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher
