"Well, I do."

Black Adam is an upcoming superhero film, based on the DC Comics anti-hero of the same name. Co-produced by New Line Cinema, DC Films, Seven Bucks Productions, and Flynn Picture Company, the film will serve as a spin-off to Shazam! and will be the eleventh installment in the DC Extended Universe. It is scheduled to be released in theaters on October 21, 2022.
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a screenplay by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab Noshirvani, the film will star Dwayne Johnson as Teth Adam / Black Adam alongside Aldis Hodge as Carter Hall / Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Albert Rothstein / Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi as Professor Adrianna Tomaz, Marwan Kenzari as Ishmael, Quintessa Swindell as Maxine Hunkel / Cyclone, Bodhi Sabongui as Amon, with Pierce Brosnan as Kent Nelson / Doctor Fate, and Djimon Hounsou as Shazam. James Cusati-Moyer, Mo Amer, and Uli Latukefu have also been cast in undisclosed roles.
Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the Egyptian gods—and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.

On August 28, 2018, when asked about the status of Black Adam by Collider, Dany Garcia said "Black Adam is definitely happening. We’re actually very deep into a script on it right now, which is coming along really well. I’m really excited about the story we’ve crafted." Garcia revealed that Adam Styzkiel had written a script and that they had been reviewing it.
Initially set to be introduced in Shazam!, by January 2017 the production studios involved divided the narrative of Shazam and Black Adam to focus on the latter's superhero origin, and downfall into villainy. By October 2017, Adam Sztykiel was hired as the screenwriter. Co-producer Hiram Garcia stated the film will be gritty and violent, similar to the comics.
On November 14, 2019, Dwayne Johnson released a teaser poster for the movie with a release date for December 22, 2021.
On April 7, 2021, Deadline reported that James Cusati-Moyer had joined the cast in an undisclosed role and the next day, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Bodhi Sabongui had also joined the cast in a key role.
Principal photography supposedly was scheduled to begin by late 2019.
In April 2018, Johnson said that the script of the film had been completed and it might start filming at the end of 2019, after completing Jumanji 3 and Red Notice.
On February 17, 2021, The Hollywood Reporter reported that the film would start production that April in Atlanta. On April 7, 2021, Dwayne Johnson revealed that the film would begin production the same week. On April 10, 2021, Dwayne Johnson confirmed that the film had officially begun production.
On July 6, 2021, Dwayne Johnson revealed that the film had entered its last week of production.

On November 19, 2019, Grace Randolph of Beyond The Trailer reported a rumor that Dwayne Johnson was eyeing a one-on-one fight between Black Adam and Superman for a potential sequel. She said that since Henry Cavill was repped by Dany Garcia, co-founder of Seven Bucks Productions and producer on Shazam! and Black Adam and Johnson's ex-wife, it should be expected that Johnson would like to have Cavill reprise the role for the showdown.
