Release Date: 'Black Adam' to have a theatrical release next year
Black Adam is an anti-hero character and is a spin-off of 2019's hit Shazam!, featuring Zachary Levi. Johnson and Seven Bucks Productions' Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia have collaborated with Beau Flynn of FlynnPictureCo to produce the film. Also, FlynnPictureCo's Scott Sheldon is the executive producer. As per reports, Johnson's first DC flick is slated to have a theatrical release on July 29, 2022.
Story: Black Adam and Shazam are archenemies
Since the 1970s, DC has published Captain Marvel (not the Brie Larson character) as Shazam in its comics. The story's background is that Teth-Adam or Mighty Adam was a hero, who was corrupted by power and turned into Black Adam. Thus, he was exiled by Shazam to another universe and they became archenemies. Now, he will return to Earth to try to make amends.
Projects: Johnson also has 'Red Notice' in the pipeline
Johnson will be next seen in a fantasy adventure movie, Jungle Cruise. Releasing on July 30, this flick also stars Emily Blunt, Jack Whitehall, Edgar Ramirez, Jesse Plemons, and Paul Giamatti. Recently, the release date of the Baywatch actor's upcoming film, Red Notice, was also announced. Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds will also feature in this action-packed movie, which will premiere on November 12.
