The Rock Announces BLACK ADAM Release Date With Some Official Jim Lee Concept Art

We finally have a release date for the long-awaited Black Adam movie, as star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has taken to Instagram to make the announcement and share some official promo art! Take a look...

It's been a long time since we had any official updates on the Black Adam movie, but star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has now taken to social media to announce that the Shazam! spin-off will fly into theaters on 22 December, 2021!

The actor also shared a lengthy statement expressing his love for Superman, the hero he realized he "could never be," and the character he considers to be a darker interpretation of the Man of Steel.

"BLACK ADAM is blessed by magic with the powers equal to SUPERMAN, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people - but he does it his way. Truth and justice - the BLACK ADAM way."

This obviously confirms that the first live-action incarnation of Black Adam will indeed be a hero (or an antihero, at a stretch), which will be quite the departure from the source material.

Check out some concept art from Jim Lee and Boss Logic below, and let us know what you think in the comments.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Man in Black ⚡️ Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero. Having cool superpowers, fighting for what’s right and always protecting the people. It all changed for me, when I was 10yrs old and was first introduced to the greatest superhero of all time - SUPERMAN. As a kid, Superman was the hero I always wanted to be. But, a few years into my fantasy, I realized that Superman was the hero, I could never be. I was too rebellious. Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority. Despite my troubles, I was still a good kid with a good heart - I just liked to do things my way. Now, years later as a man, with the same DNA I had as a kid - my superhero dreams have come true. I’m honored to join the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to become, BLACK ADAM. BLACK ADAM is blessed by magic with the powers equal to SUPERMAN, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people - but he does it his way. Truth and justice - the BLACK ADAM way. This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together. BLACK ADAM 12.22.21 ⚡️ Huge thank you to my friends, @jimlee and @bosslogic for this first time ever bad ass collaboration.
