Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson and producer Hiram Garcia tease their plans for the DC franchise.

After many years of development, Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam will finally hit the big screen in October, and he won’t be alone either. Black Adam will also feature the Justice Society, with a line-up consisting of Hawkman, Doctor Fate, Atom Smasher, and Cyclone.

The Black Adam Extended Universe

If all goes well with Black Adam, the man in black might play a big role in DC’s plans. Dwayne Johnson teased a little bit about those plans with Total Film:

“The goal is to really expand the universe, and introduce new characters, and spin-off, and be really strategic about the plan. We have a few ideas of what characters people are really going to respond to in Black Adam, and so we’re already thinking ahead to: ‘Let’s start thinking about that movie, and what that movie looks like for them.’” 

Black Adam producer Hiram Garcia added that crossovers could also be on the way if the first film is successful:

“I think our ambition has always been that this is all a shared universe, you know? While [Black Adam and Shazam] may not be crossing paths, everything exists in a big umbrella of the DC universe. And we want to be able to build out the universe as big as we can, and, you know, with those ambitions. If everything’s received the way we hope it will be, we have opportunities to potentially see crossovers in certain points.”

Here is the synopsis for Black Adam:

“Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods—and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.”

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a script written by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, the DCEU film stars Dwayne Johnson, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, Bodhi Sabongui, and Pierce Brosnan.

Black Adam opens in theaters on October 21, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming film, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
