It seems like DC’s Black Adam film will be looking to adapt a popular comic story featuring the villain. According to a new rumor from insider Daniel RPK, the current script from by writer Adam Szytkiel sees the “Black Adam: The Dark Age” story come to life.
” The Dark Age” 6-issue miniseries debuted in 2007 and it follows Teth-Adam’s journey to resurrect his wife, the deceased super-hero called Isis. However, he lost his powers so he needs to gain them back. It leads him on a quest to find both the magic that will restore his powers and the one thing that always kept his heart from turning completely black with rage. Of course, things get complicated as he’s one of the most-wanted villains on earth and has the world’s greatest heroes going after him. Specifically, the Justice Society of America. This news does coincide with a previous report that Black Adam would face Hawkman and other JSA members in his solo film.
The story would take place in the past and before the events of the recent DC films. Now, how would any of this fit into a world where Superman was the first hero? Well, the answer is simple: continuity is no longer the name of the game. It will be evident with Wonder Woman 1984 that Warner Bros. is taking a new approach to their cinematic universe and just start focusing on producing quality solo films.
Dwayne Johnson is still currently set to star in the leading role as the director search continues. Production is looking to begin sometime in March next year.
