Dwayne Johnson’s new anti-hero comic book movie, Black Adam, has officially wrapped production.
Johnson announced this via his official Instagram handle.
Black Adam will be out in theatres on July 29, 2022.
“I knew many years ago, the opportunity for me to make Black Adam would be a once in a career event. It has been my true honour to go shoulder to shoulder with over 1,000 brilliant and hungry crew of filmmakers and storytellers to bring the antihero known as, Black Adam to life,” he said.
“Black Adam” portrays Johnson as the titular villain. It stars Noah Centineo, Aldis Hodge, Sarah Shahi, Quintessa Swindell and Pierce Brosnan.
Johnson, one of the highest-paid actors in the world, said the preparation for the movie had been the ‘hardest’ and ‘toughest’ of his career to date.
“Black Adam” had in 2019 been slated to premiere just in time for the 2021 holiday season.
However, the pandemic pushed back filming, which delayed the Dec. 22, 2021 date by seven months.
Johnson announced the film’s new July 2022 date in March in a short ad before the NCAA’s tournament game between UCLA and the University of Alabama.
The movie was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who also directed Disney’s “Jungle Cruise,” also starring Johnson, which will be in theatres by the end of this month.
