Fans have been clamoring for any updates on the Black Adam movie after several DC Extended Universe films have been seemingly shelved. However, Hiram Garcia wants to assure everyone that Dwayne Johnson's comic book movie is still happening and is almost ready to begin production.
Garcia recently spoke to Cinemablend at the world premiere of Hobbs & Shaw. The Black Adam producer confirmed that director Jaume Collet-Serra is already preparing for the project.
"Jaume is a real talent. He is one of my favorite directors I've ever worked with. Not only is he talented, he's an unbelievable collaborator. He's an amazing visionary. And what we have in store with Black Adam and for the fans, I am so excited inside," Garcia said.
Not surprisingly, Garcia admitted that he has been a huge fan of Black Adam from the start and having Collet-Serra working on the film is truly a treat.
"Inside, I take pride as being a fan boy. I started as a fan boy before I became a producer, so I hold onto that DNA. His vision for what we want to do with Black Adam is fantastic. So, that deal's almost closed. He's ready to go, and I think the fans are going to be really happy," he said.
We're certainly hoping that Black Adam begins production soon. However, the Warner Bros. flick has not yet been given an official release date. Hopefully, this will change before the end of 2019.
