The Skyscraper star, Dwayne Johnson, thinks the ‘Black Adam‘ movie will begin filming in late 2019.
Insisting the DC villain movie will be coming soon, Dwayne stated in an interview with FilmStarts: “With Black Adam I don’t think we’re going to start early next year. Early next year right now it looks like I’m going to be shooting Jumanji, and then after that, if everything goes well I’ll shoot a movie called Red Notice with Rawson Thurber again, with Gal Gadot, and another actor yet to be named. But Black Adam possibly at the end of next year. It’s coming along great, the script is coming along great we’re very happy with it.”
While he seems unsure of when principal photography will begin, he did hint that there is potential for a few DC cameos. With Shazam wrapping on filming, would we be seeing the red and gold hero taking on Black Adam in his own film?
Johnson had this to say; “Without giving anything away, there might be maybe a cameo or two of some of the other DC superheroes. We’ll see. That’s been the beauty of Black Adam as we’ve been developing it is that we could make a movie that just stood on its own too as well, but that’s also the beauty of those universes coming together at DC.”
However, previous to this, the Rock had expressed that he was hoping to see the film released in 2019… So it won’t be filming at the beginning of 2019, it might start filming at the end of 2019, but Dwayne wants to see the film released some time in 2019.. right…
He stated, “The script came in, it’s great, we’re working on it. If things come together in the way we anticipate them coming together, that feels like a 2019 movie … Marvel is doing such an incredible job of universe building … and DC is doing a great job finding the footing and tone of their movies. It’s this phenomenal opportunity for us to nail the tone and make sure he’s badass. Also we have intrinsic DNA tied to a lot of other properties in DC.”
So I guess the primary thing to take away from all of this is that Dwayne Johnson is not entirely sure when the film will begin filming, BUT it’ll be coming soon. My guess? We’ll be seeing Black Adam sometime in 2020 or 2021. Sorry to burst your bubble there Mr. Johnson.
