The Rock just surprised everyone while sharing a new release date for his upcoming DC flick Black Adam. It’s yet to go into production.

Mark your calendars for the Black Adam movie, which will now arrive on July 29, 2022, assuming that the pandemic situation will not change for the worse.

Recently, renowned actor Pierce Brosnan was also cast as Dr. Fate in Black Adam.

The new release date has been revealed due to the impact of the pandemic.

Yes, there is a pandemic, but that’s not going to stop the makers from giving out potential blockbusters.

One ample proof of that is WB’s upcoming slate, predominantly comprising of DC-based movies.

Talking about the most-awaited names, they are James Gunn’s The Suicide SquadThe Flash, and The Batman. The latter stars Robert Pattinson who will make his superhero debut as Bruce Wayne in the Matt Reeves directorial next year in March.

Then there is the sequel to 2018’s highly successful Aquaman. The second part will start shooting this summer. James Wan will return alongside Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry. Amber Heard is also expected to come back as Mera, the Queen of Atlantis.

Several other crucial projects in early development are Batgirl, The Trench, and Wonder Woman 3. Patty Jenkins will helm the third installment starring Gal Gadot as the superheroine of Amazon.
