Black Adam: Jaume Collet-Serra directing
After the success of Shazam! many fans of the DC Comics asked at what point was the movie about Black Adam, not just in the development phase. We know that the film will see Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson playing the role of the evil protagonist (and sometimes anti-hero), but nothing about who will be the director. At least until now.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Jaume Collet-Serra will direct the film of the powerful nemesis of Billy Batson, the boy with the power to transform into the hero Shazam by saying the name of the wizard that granted him his powers.
Jaume Collet-Serra may not be a familiar name to most, but is, instead, a name well known also among the cast of the film, having just finished directing Jungle Cruise alongside your Johnson. It is not yet clear what will be the plot of the movie of Black Adam, do not even know if we'll see the villain meet his superhero rival on the big screen.
Also, Dwayne Johnson has officially welcomed to the director:
Cool news announcing Spanish thriller filmmakers, Jaume Collet-Serra as my director for DC''s BLACK ADAM. Jaume and I have worked together for the last two years in the 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 🥃 welcoming Jaume and can't wait to bring to life the world's anti-hero in black. #DC #JaumeColletSerra #BlackAdam⚡️
Created by Otto Binder and C. C. Beck, Black Adam debuted for the first time with Fawcett Comics in 1945, before the rights to the character were acquired by DC Comics. In DCEU, Black Adam was the former champion of the wizard Council, who was exiled after he had betrayed those that had granted her power.
