DC's Black Adam Starting Production in April

In mere weeks, the exciting DC movie is finally getting underway.


The Rock's Black Adam, which will introduce the Justice Society of America to the DC movie universe, is now expected to start production in April according to a recent interview. Speaking with, Black Adam executive producer Hiram Garcia revealed that the film is gearing up and counting down the days to get started next month.

"We begin filming in April, we'll be in Georgia, home away from home," Garcia says. "We're really excited, man. We have everything ramped up. We're so fired up for this."

During the conversation, Garcia also reflected on the silver lining of last year's COVID delays to productions, noting that "we're happy we're able to pause, regroup, and now we're going to be getting going." The extra down time, says Garcia, enabled the creative team to add more depth to concepts that were in place before the coronavirus spread, and also allowed "high ambitions and such high hopes for this" to ratchet up even further, though was light on specifics on all fronts there.

Wanting to preserve the surprises and excitement Black Adam will have in store, Garcia only mentioned a detail we already know: "[The Rock] is a walking superhero… and if there was ever anyone born to play a character, it's him."

In addition to The Rock, it was recently announced that the film's cast will also include Quintessa Swindell (Euphoria) as Cyclone and Aldis Hodge (The Invisible Man) as Hawkman. Black Adam will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who previously worked with Johnson on the upcoming Disney movie Jungle Cruise.
