Dwayne Johnson has been tied to the Black Adam film for over 10 years, even before the addition of Shazam to the DCEU. The film has maintained a rather comfortable residency in Developmental Hell while Johnson has kept himself busy with other franchises. Though the antihero’s existence was acknowledged via a brief tease in Zachary Levi’s Shazam!, there still hadn’t been any confirmed word from DC as to when the dedicated solo film would come into fruition. Thanks to a rather detailed fan sculpture, now we know.

When Twitter user @TheKingsLetter tweeted a picture of sculpture depicting Johnson posing broodingly with the cape, Johnson responded with a nice surprise for us all: a firm Black Adam production date. It looks like he’ll be suiting up July of next year.


Per ComingSoon, Black Adam will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who also directed Johnson’s high-action film adaptation of the just-okay Disney theme park staple, Jungle Cruise. Johnson will also co-produce the film alongside Beau Flyn, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia.
