Dwayne Johnson Reveals ‘Black Adam’ Release Date


In a short clip that aired on TBS ahead of the UCLA vs. Alabama tournament game, as well as on his Instagram and Twitter, Dwayne Johnson officially announced a July 29, 2022 release date for his upcoming superhero film Black Adam.

The film was originally set to be released in December of 2021, but given the pandemic it, like so many others, has seen delays. This new clip, which you can find below, shows digital screens around New York City’s Times Square lit up with the updated release date while a voiceover by Johnson declares, “The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change.” The film, which is set to introduce not only the title character Black Adam, but DC’s Justice League precursor the Justice Society of America (JSA) will definitely be a shakeup for the DC Universe.

With Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate appearing as the JSA opposite Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam there is not doubt that this film has an all-star cast, but the question now is how will they hold up against a classic franchise? Disney has already set July 29 of next year as the release date for their yet to be titled fifth Indiana Jones film, so DC and New Line will be taking Black Adam directly up against the sequel for opening weekend. We shall have to wait and see which film comes out on top, but with what we know of Black Adam right now it seems like it will be a fair fight.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
