It’s been almost a year since Shazam hit the big screen, but there’s been very little talk about the much-reported Black Adam film that would serve as the introduction to one of the hero’s greatest adversaries. Today that changed, thanks to a Tweet from Dwayne Johnson, we now know that the movie is set to start filming in July of 2020.
Johnson’s producing Partner, Hiram Garcia, recently had this to say about the upcoming film:
“So as we were developing an actual Black Adam and Shazam movie, we were just realizing that both characters are so special that we didn’t want to compromise either of them by cramming them both into the same movie. So that’s why we made the decision to let Shazam have his own standalone movie and kind of launch him properly, and then we’ll do the same for Black Adam. And so that kind of really freed things up. It allowed us to develop the right version of both.”
