A new delay in Black Adam’s release has been announced by Dwayne Johnson. When Johnson was first hired in the role of Black Adam in 2014, he was widely rumored to play the DCEU’s anti-hero. Jaume Collet-Serra, the film’s director, is tasked with telling the story of Black Adam’s genesis as well as introducing the Justice Society of America. On the Black Adam cast are Sarah Shahi, Noah Centineo, Quintessa Swindell as well as Pierce Brosnan and Aldis Hodge.

The road to Black Adam in the movie has been long and winding. After numerous delays and rescheduled production dates, Warner Bros. had originally planned to release Black Adam in late 2021. It looked like the film had finally found its way ahead when production began last spring, avoiding any extra delays. The debut of Black Adam had been planned for July, but it has now been postponed.

Why Has DC's Black Adam Been Delaying Expected Date Of Release!!

Johnson announced the postponement of Black Adam on social media on Wednesday. The film will now open in theaters on October 21 instead of the originally planned summer release date. It’s not clear why Black Adam’s original July 29 release date has been pushed back, but director Rian Johnson has confirmed that his animated DC League of Super-Pets will occupy that slot. According to Johnson, the film will be ready for major holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas with an October release date.

Those who have been anticipating the return of Black Adam will be disappointed, but the news is not altogether unexpected. Movie delays have been common since the coronavirus outbreak, but recent months have seen evidence of theaters recovering revenue. The opening weekend of The Batman, a DC film, was the second-best of the decade, taking in $134 million. However, Black Adam’s new deferment may play a factor in the company’s intention to relocate earlier this year.
If nothing else, fans can rest assured that Black Adam will appear in the DC Extended Universe’s 2022 teaser, which shows that the character is still an important part of DC’s plan for the series.

The new October release date for Black Adam is a first for the DC Extended Universe. After The Flash, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will be released in December. Warner Bros. appears to be delayed at least one of its major projects, which is an uncommon occurrence for high-profile superhero films to be released in such close proximity. Neither picture had been postponed at the time of Johnson’s announcement. Now that Black Adam has been operating for more than a decade, a large Christmas run is in the works. Keep an eye out for the remaining release dates, as they will be announced soon.

When asked about the movie’s progress, Garcia said, “We’re thrilled and we’re very excited with the way the movie has been looking.” The film follows Johnson’s role in DC’s animated flick “DC’S League of Super-Pets,” which will be released on July 29, 2022.
