This is great news considering that Black Adam seems to be on a roll these days. It was previously confirmed that former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan has been cast as Doctor Fate. This means that the Justice Society of America is now complete along with Noah Centineo's Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge's Hawkman, and Quintessa Swindell's Cyclone.
Johnson has always hyped up Black Adam since it was confirmed that he was cast as the DC comic book antihero. The Jungle Cruise star recently teased that the movie will begin production in April. With Brosnan on board, the DCEU flick is certainly good to go.
A new poster for Black Adam was also revealed and it confirms the new release date for the DCEU flick. Hopefully, we'll be getting a teaser or trailer once the film starts shooting next month.
Black Adam will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and will also star Aladdin actor Marwan Kenzari, whose role remains undisclosed. There are speculations that Kenzari will play the main villain in the film.
Black Adam is currently scheduled for release on July 29, 2022. It is unclear if the movie will only be released in theaters or if it will also get a digital release on HBO Max. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
