Black Adam is one of Warner Bros. much-awaited DCEU project that has faced an ever long delay for years. but thankfully, the studio has been lucky to have Dwayne Johnson on board the project to play the anti-villain character and with the success of Shazam!, the project got its well-deserved boost for the execs at WB to move forward and hire director Jaume Collet-Serra to helm the solo DC film.
Currently, all details regarding the project remain in wraps and it is likely that fans won’t be hearing a lot about the DC film till the director begins working on the project. But for now, Black Adam Producer Hiram Garcia has assured that the deal to sign on Jaume for the project is closing in and the team is ready to begin work.
While speaking on the red carpet for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, Garcia praised Jaume and teased that she is excited about what they have instilled for fans.
“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,” Garcia explained to CinemaBlend. “And what we have in store with Black Adam and for the fans, I am so excited inside. 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.”
Director Jaume will be re-teaming with Johnson after their upcoming Disney film Jungle Cruise. The Rock also responded to the news of Jaume helming the solo project and shared his excitement announcing it via his Instagram post. You can check it out below.
