Every now and then, I forget things. I occasionally forget that Bernie Mac is dead, and when I remember, I fall into a pit of despair for roughly 12 hours. Similarly, every so often, I forget that roughly 87 years ago, Dwayne the Rock Johnson signed on to play none other than DC villain and anti-hero Black Adam. So long ago was it that we got a freakin’ Shazam! movie get developed and produced in a fraction of the time.

And then I remember and wonder, “Oh, I wonder when that’s coming out.” Well, if we’re to believe the word of Johnson himself, then I may soon stop forgetting and remembering his playing of Mr. Adam. Johnson took to Twitter to share the following when a sculptor showed him an image of a Dwayne Johnson-esque Black Adam figure.

“Very cool man, thank you.
Amazing detail.
This project has been with me for over 10yrs🖤⚡️
Production begins this July.
Appreciate the support.”

That’s right, Johnson just lowkey revealed that they’ll begin production in July of 2020, meaning that a 2021 is when we can expect the movie proper. After over a decade of waiting, we’ll finally have a chance to see Johnson fulfill his promise of playing Black Adam.

Are you excited to see this film finally come to fruition? Let us know down below!
