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. In November 2017, TheWrap reported that the super-villain might be introduced in the Suicide Squad 2 before the solo film. 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.
In September 2014, Dwayne Johnson was cast to portray Black Adam in the DC Extended Universe. On November 21, 2019, Heroic Hollywood reported that the film will include Black Adam's love interest, Isis, with casting yet to be confirmed. On November 30, 2019, the film is reported to include iconic JSA characters like Hawkman, Doctor Fate, Hawkgirl, Atom Smasher, and Cyclone.
Principal photography supposedly is scheduled to begin in 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 October 18, 2018, Dwayne Johnson revealed on Twitter that production for the film will begin in July 2020.
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.
