Jaume Collet-Serra will work with Dwayne Johnson a second time.
Studio Warner Bros. found the director for a picture of the main opponent of Shazam – the Black Adam. The film will be dealt with by the Spaniard Jaume Collet-Serra, known for the remake of the horror House of Wax and the four militants with Liam Neeson in the lead role (Unknown, Air Marshal, Night Runaway and Passenger).
The main role in the “Black Adam” will be played by Duane Johnson, and the shooting should begin within a year – the actor himself spoke about this in April .
Coletus Serra and Johnson will be working together for the second time – shortly before that, they were working on the adventure film “Jungle Cruise” for Disney.
Black Adam first appeared in comics in the mid-forties. In the story, he – the ancient Egyptian prince, one of the predecessors of Shazam, who wanted to rule the world. Later, his character was rethought as an antihero, who more than once spoke on the same side with the forces of good.
Initially, Adam was supposed to appear in the first film about Shazam, but in DC they decided that he needed his own spin-off.
