The Rock's Black Adam Casts Quintessa Swindell As Cyclone

Bit by bit, the new DC movie is excitedly rounding out its cast.


The Rock's Black Adam movie--which will introduce The Justice Society of America to the DC movie universe--has reportedly just found its Cyclone in Trinkets star Quintessa Swindell. Swindell's stock has been continuing to soar since a breakout 2019 performance in HBO's series Euphoria, and this casting choice demonstrates their growing range as an actor.

The Rock took to Twitter on December 14 to announce the news himself. Obviously, he's pretty excited to bring a piece of JSA into the DCU.

Swindell's casting announcement marks the fourth role to be announced so far for Black Adam, but little is known about the film overall. It was recently revealed that Underground and The Invisible Man star Aldis Hodge was cast for Hawkman, making him the third actor to sign on after Dwayne Johnson in the titular role, and Noah Centineo, who will play Atom Smasher.

Black Adam will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who previously worked with Johnson on the upcoming Disney movie Jungle Cruise. The current version of the script was written by Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani (Informer). At this point, there is no public start date for production set and no announced release date.

The next DC movie set for release is Wonder Woman 1984, which will be coming to movie theaters and also HBO Max on Christmas.
