Black Adam is finally coming to the big screen this year and there are already discussions of a sequel.
The film's producer, Hiram Garcia, talked to Collider about his work with Dwayne Johnson. During the interview, Garcia also mentioned that there are plans to lead off from the DC adaptation.
Black Adam Sequel Is Already Being Planned
Garcia has worked with Dwayne Johnson for several years, acting as the president of production at the actor's Seven Bucks Productions. When asked about the potential of turning the villain's story into a multi-picture arc, the producer mentioned that sequels are being planned:
100%. We have always had a vision of where we saw we wanted this to go. We've never viewed this as just a one-off movie.
Not only are sequels in the pipeline, but Garcia also has ideas for spin-off features:
I've always gotten into this with a vision of, "This is the story we want to tell, this is where we would love to see this go, this is how we would see multiple pictures play out, possibly including spinoffs for individual characters," but there's always been a rough, kind of loose outline in our head on an imaginary white board of how we'd want to do it. As we're making that, we start to look at that a little bit more.
But of course, the status of the projects will depend heavily on whether the Shazam villain's story is well-received and does well financially.
But, again, ultimately, we need the movie to be received well and we want fans to like it, but there's 100% a vision of what we'd like to be doing in a multiple picture aspect when it comes to Black Adam and the JSA.
It's been a long road to bring the DC character to the big screen, as The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment was attached to the anti-hero nearly 15 years ago.
We grabbed our first look at Black Adam at DC Fandome (via ONE Media), ahead of its release date in July 2022.
