Dwayne Johnson’s introduction to the world of DC films will have to wait just a little while longer. During an Instagram Live video Sunday night, Johnson revealed that production on his highly anticipated film Black Adam will not begin until late August or September due to the CO-VID 19 pandemic.
“We still plan on shooting probably at the end of summer now, probably pushed into the end of August or September,” Johnson said. “That is a project I hold near and dear to my heart and so I can’t wait to get started.”
Additionally, the actor formally known as The Rock has never shied away about his passion for the project. He has been attached to the project nearly since the rumblings of its development first surfaced in 2008. Since then, Johnson continues to hype the film and its titular main character on social media frequently.
Over the last few months, speculation on what the actual film will depict has made the rounds. Among them, the introduction of the JSA, Hawkgirl, and Doctor Fate stands out as particularly exciting. Black Adam will be produced by The Rock’s Seven Bucks Productions alongside Warner Bros and New Line Cinema.
Johnson remains one of the busiest men in Hollywood. In addition to Black Adam and the development of Hobbs & Shaw 2, the actor will produce an NBC series based on his own life titled Young Rock. Additionally, Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions is actively developing a biopic about the 16-time World Champion Ric Flair.
