One of the most anticipated films in the upcoming DCEU film slate is the Dwayne Johnson-led Black Adam. Following a promise that the DC Universe would never be the same at August’s DC FanDome event, the film added One Night in Miami star Aldis Hodge to its boisterous cast. Shortly thereafter, cinematic legend Pierce Brosnan joined the cast as Dr. Fate. Now, as first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the film will add the up-and-coming star of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Bodhi Sabongui.
While the extent of the young actor’s involvement is a mystery, for the time being, the initial report notes that it is a key role within the Black Adam canon. Sabongui joins the likes of Quintessa Swindell and Noah Centineo as young stars looking to capture their superhero moment in the highly-anticipated film.
Black Adam serves as a passion project of sorts for Dwayne Johnson. Since signing on to play the character back in 2007, The Rock’s film has hit several bumps in the road. However, with DC Films, New Line Cinema, and Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions finally getting on the same page with the film, production will finally begin in just a few short weeks. Run All Night helmer Jaume Collet-Serra will direct the film. Additionally, the infamous Justice Society of America will appear on the big screen for the first time.
Bodhi Sabongui is a 13-year-old Canadian-American actor and novice activist of Egyptian heritage. His young career has already spawned notable appearances in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, ABC’s A Million Little Things, and Netflix’s The Babysitters Club. Additionally, Sabongui stars in the Netflix/WWE collaborative film The Main Event as well.
