Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Black Adam’ Filming Postponed to 2021 Due to Production Delays. The COVID-19 Pandemic caused Hollywood to come to a grinding halt in March 2020 and production has just begun to resume in various parts of the world now in July of 2020. Many highly anticipated titles are being held back even further in theaters due to the fear of moviegoers who are not yet ready to brave movie theaters during a time when social distancing is still mandated in many countries and states around the world, and studios are unwilling to release the films before key box office cities begin to reopen.
With delays in theaters and filming, many titles are being pushed back as far as several years, including Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Black Adam’. “Black Adam is DC Comics super hero, blessed by magic with powers equal to Superman, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people – but he does it his way. Truth and justice – the Black Adam way.”
The film was originally set to film in summer 2020 with the release date previously set for December 22, 2021. With production delays, the filming for Black Adam is being pushed back to sometime in 2021, meaning the movie will likely premiere in theaters sometime in 2022 or 2023. This isn’t the first film that has been delayed for Johnson, The Jungle Cruise has been pushed back on several occasions and will now premiere in theaters July 29, 2021, nearly 3-years after it’s original and intended release date! Woozah!
