Dwayne Johnson Unveils ‘Black Adam’ Summer season 2022 Launch Date Throughout NCAA Tourney Sport – .
This afternoon, just before the NCAA tournament game UCLA vs. Alabama, Dwayne Johnson announced the release date of his New Line / DC superhero film Black Adam: July 29, 2022.
Johnson appeared in a short spot on TBS for Black Adam and also posted on Instagram and Twitter (see below) digital screens in NYC’s Times Square that were on fire with the release date.
“The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change,” said Dwayne Johnson on the TBS spot.
Johnson also made a funny punch with NCAA sports caster and former 11-time NBA All-Star Charles Barkley, an Alabama native and an Auburn University alum: “And Chuck, I can’t do anything for an Auburn guy who picks Alabama go to final 4. ”Johnson made the joke just before the UCLA-Alabama game today.
‘Black Adam’: Dwayne Johnson DC movie picks Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate
“He’s been insane since I was a long stunt double in movies,” Barkley told his NCAA sports colleagues after the ad, adding, “If Alabama makes it to Final 4, I’ll bring and wear a houndstooth hat it! Roll Tide! “
Black Adam also plays Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone and Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate.
Jaume Collet-Serra, who directed Johnson in addition to Emily Blunt in Disney’s Jungle Cruise, will direct. Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia from Seven Bucks Productions produce Black Adam with Beau Flynn from FlynnPictureCo. FlynnPictureCo’s Scott Sheldon will act as EP.
Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani wrote the latest draft. Adam Sztykiel wrote the previous draft.
While Warner Bros. can be seen in theaters and on HBO Max in 2021, the big studio recently hammered an exclusive 45-day movie theater window with U.S. exhibitor Shelf No. 2 for its 2022 plan. Last week’s news showed that Warner Bros. was reverting to an initial window schedule for their movies before they got to their streaming service.
Warner Bros. had answered the weekend of August 5th to 7th, 2022 for an event film. I have to think they are losing that date now that Black Adam is leaving the weekend before. Interestingly, Disney already announced Indiana Jones 5 on July 29th next year.
Let the flashing competition between rock and indy begin.
