Black Adam S: Dwayne Johnson

Couldn't find a thread for this one, but Dwayne Johnson will be starring in a Black Adam solo film instead of being the primary villain in the Shazam movie.

Here's an article I found from April:

Dwayne Johnson Confirms Separate Movies for Black Adam and Shazam; Teases DC Plans

A report surfaced in January that Warner Bros. was considering splitting Shazam into two movies—one focusing on Black Adam, and one focusing on Shazam. And in a new interview with MTV, Johnson confirms that is indeed the case:

“We’ve had great discussions with Geoff Johns over there at DC. This is a really, really fun, cool time for DC right now because they’re really in a process of truly world building, and building out. We’re seeing that with Wonder Woman and Aquaman, and we have a few surprises down the line. So what we decided to do was actually create a scenario where Black Adam is having his standalone movie, Captain Marvel/Shazam will have his standalone movie, and then we’re building our world up that way and then we can come together at some other point.”

“Undateable” Creator Adam Sztykiel to Write Dwayne Johnson’s “Black Adam” Movie for DC, New Line (Exclusive)

Undateable creator Adam Sztykiel is in negotiations to write New Line and DC Entertainment’s Black Adam movie starring Dwayne Johnson as the popular antihero, the Tracking Board has exclusively learned.

There’s no director attached yet, but the film will be produced by Johnson and Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions, and Beau Flynn of the Flynn Picture Company. The villainous comic book character was created in 1945 by Otto Binder and C.C. Beck.

The news comes just days after New Line and DC set Zachary Levi (NBC’s Chuck) to play Shazam in the superhero film of the same name. Originally conceived to be the central antagonist in Shazam!, Black Adam was spun off into a separate film earlier this year and is being developed alongside its counterpart.

Sztykiel is no stranger to New Line, having penned We’re the Millers 2 and the Lonely Island-produced action comedy Spy Guys for the studio. He also wrote the Robert Downey Jr.-Zach Galifianakis comedy Due Date and the Patrick Dempsey-Michelle Monaghan rom-com Made of Honor.

Re: Black Adam S: Dwayne Johnson

Take it for what you will, in an interview (promoting Rampage) Dwayne Johnson said this about the movie:

“The script came in, it’s great, we’re working on it. If things come together in the way we anticipate them coming together, that feels like a 2019 movie, in production.”

Re: Black Adam S: Dwayne Johnson

Interview with Hiram Garcia, production president of Dwayne Johnson's Seven Bucks Productions:

What’s the rest of the 2019 Seven Bucks slate look like?

We just wrapped “Hobbs and Shaw,” which bows in August. We just had our launch and had a great Super Bowl spot that people responded to pretty positively. Right now, we’re shooting the next version of “Jumanji,” which comes out in December. We’re also ramping up a couple big projects like “Black Adam” and our goal is to get that going at the top of 2020. The script is coming along well and we’re in the polishing phase now and are looking to attach the right director to it. A lot of people consider Dwayne a superhero already, so to finally have him play one on screen in the DC universe is a dream for us.

EXCLUSIVE: New ‘BLACK ADAM’ Script Features Hawkman, Atom Smasher and Stargirl

Late last month, scribe Adam Szytkiel, who was brought on by New Line back in 2017 to pen the Johnson vehicle, turned in an updated draft of the script which is sure to please fans of DC Comics. Szytkiel’s script seems to be taking some cues from Geoff Johns’ early 2000’s work with the character and sets up a battle of heavyweights as it pits Hawkman against the protector of Khandaq!

The studio will be looking to cast an actor, 30-39, to take on the role of Carter Hall with an emphasis on landing someone the audience can believe could go toe-to-toe with the Brahma Bull!

The script also features Adam’s fellow JSA members Atom Smasher and Stargirl, the two of whom have often been depicted to be in a relationship in the comics. The studio will be searching for talent, 20-29, to play the duo.

While plot details are being kept under wraps, the addition of Hawkman to the film could certainly indicate that the studios is at least entertaining the thought of pushing the envelope on the amount of violence we’ll be seeing on screen. In a 2018 interview, producer Hiram Garcia stated that the film was not going to be “softened up” for audiences and the inclusion of Hawkman would seem to indicate that they’re standing by that claim.

Black Adam is tentatively set for a March 2020 start of production and is currently searching for a director. Stay tuned to That Hashtag Show for more on this project and other DC Entertainment news!
