Remember about 133 years ago when Dwayne Johnson was cast as Black Adam? As the DC Extended Universe has gone through its trials and tribulations, it’s become a bit of a question mark that any film out there would be getting made. Yet, in spite of all the trouble the universe has had, Black Adam is something that’s been consistently on the distant horizon.
But is that still the case with Black Adam? As time has gone one, other films have been shuffled forward and Black Adam has been sitting in place. One might start to think that it’s lost its priority over at Warner Bros. along with the regime change. However, speaking with Collider, producer Hiram Garcia assured fans that the film is, in fact, happening:
“Black Adam is definitely happening. We’re actually very deep into a script on it right now, which is coming along really well. I’m really excited with the story we’ve crafted. Look, I’ve always been a huge comic book fan. I’ve always had this dream, I’ve always wanted to–You know, you kind of have like these goals of like, ‘One day I’d love to be able to do this and this,’ and making a superhero movie was definitely always one of my dreams. For the longest time, you know you kind of have this living superhero in Dwayne Johnson, so I was always trying to figure out what’s the perfect character that will kind of fit him and his look and his build and his kind of edge and the attitude he’s got.”

And what of the character himself? Unlike many of the characters in the DCEU, he isn’t exactly a traditional hero, and with another film about baddies, Suicide Squad, they pretty much went the route of making them pretty heroic, when all said and done? Is that something we’ll have to worry about Black Adam? Garcia doesn’t seem to think so:
“He’s got edge to him. Like, he’s not the boy scout superhero, he’s the guy that’s like, okay, you cross him? Well, I rip your head off, and then I move on to the next guy.”
Here’s hoping we’ll get to see Black Adam take off a head.
