Despite skepticism from fans, it seems that Black Adam will finally make his way to the big screen. In a recent interview with Collider, Black Adam producer Hiram Garcia revealed that they plan to start filming at the end of next year.
“The success of Shazam! was awesome for us and it was important for us to launch that, get that out into the world and begin crafting this universe. It’s a big thing for us to create this universe, this DC section of the universe, with characters we have planned to bring into it, headlined by Shazam and Black Adam. Jaume Collet-Serra, he just closed his deal, which we’re very excited about, and the plan is to begin filming that end of next year.”
