‘Hobbs & Shaw’ star Dwayne Johnson dropped a huge announcement that fans have been waiting for on Sunday, the release date of his upcoming DC Comic film ‘Black Adam.’
According to an Instagram post from Johnson’s official account, the long-awaited superhero film is set to release July 2022.

“A disruptive and unstoppable global force of a message from the man in black himself,” the caption reads. “BLACK ADAM is coming July 29, 2022. The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change.”
This news follows the announcement that former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan will portray Kent Nelson also known as the superhero sorcerer Dr. Fate. Bleeding Fool reports that Brosnan joins Johnson, along with Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Adrianna Tomaz as Isis, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.
‘The Commuter’ director Jaume Collet-Serra was tapped to direct ‘Black Adam.’ Johnson had previously worked with the European filmmaker on Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise.’
“Cool news announcing Spanish thriller filmmaker, Jaume Collet-Serra as my director for DC’s BLACK ADAM,” Johnson said according to ScreenRant. “Jaume and I have worked together for the last two years making, DISNEY’S JUNGLE CRUISE – and I’ve been very impressed with his passion, work ethic, style, vision, tone and quality. He’s hungry to break new ground with BLACK ADAM and give the fans something very cool and special.”
“I raise a double tequila,” he added. “welcoming Jaume and can’t wait to bring to life the world’s anti-hero in black.”
Black Adam is the nemesis of Shazam, the titular hero played by Zachary Levi in the 2019 superhero comedy film. As of yet, there has been no announcement as to whether Levi will make an appearance in this Warner Media feature.
The movie received its own panel at the DC Fandome in August 2020, where Johnson showcased a slate full of action-packed ‘Black Adam’ concept art from Jim Lee and Boss Logic.
