Black Adam, the DC movie that will star Dwayne Johnson, has already started to sign his cast. The Atom Smasher character already has an actor to play him.
Noah Centineo joins DC's Black Adam movie starring Dwayne Johnson. This news was announced exclusively by The Hollywood Reporter, a North American media that in addition to reporting the signing ensures that the Netflix boy will play the character of the comics Atom Smasher. The film, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, was scheduled to start filming this summer, but the plans are not so clear now due to the pandemic.
Collet-Serra, who has just worked with Johnson on 'Jungle Cruise', is joined by Beau Flynn, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia, and Johnson himself as producers on Black Adam, this upcoming adventure anchored in the very universe of 'Shazam ! ', of which we do not have many more details. Everything would suggest that the proposal is going to embrace the most updated version of the villain whose name gives the film its title, a character who is already more anti-hero who will be joined by the one played by Centineo, Atom Smasher, whose powers include super strength and the ability to manipulate its size.
In the wake of Shazam!
Shazam !, movie starring Zachary Levi, was a success for Warner with the collection of more than 350 million dollars worldwide. Thus, following in its wake, ‘Black Adam’ is proposed, a new adventure framed in the same world that aims to create a universe in which these heroes can connect.
"We are starting to create a DC universe around 'Black Adam', 'Shazam', etc.," says Hiram Garcia. “And we have plans for the characters that we will introduce because, ultimately, we love the idea of a shared universe. I think fans love the idea of a shared universe. They love to see these characters interact. So we have very ambitious plans. "
