While DC and Warner Bros have already given a release date to Shazam, things have been awfully quiet about the Black Adam movie. Now the movie's producer has given us a small update on how the movie is going.

Black Adam producer, Hiram Garcia, was interviewed by Collider and he revealed that the movie is still in production. You can read his comments on the matter posted down below.

"Black Adam is definitely happening. We’re actually very deep into a script on it right now, which is coming along really well. I’m really excited with the story we’ve crafted. Look, I’ve always been a huge comic book fan. I’ve always had this dream, I’ve always wanted to—You know, you kind of have like these goals of like, ‘One day I’d love to be able to do this and this,’ and making a superhero movie was definitely always one of my dreams. For the longest time, you know you kind of have this living superhero in Dwayne Johnson, so I was always trying to figure out what’s the perfect character that will kind of fit him and his look and his build and his kind of edge and the attitude he’s got"

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was cast as Black Adam several years ago, but the movie was unable to be made due to Johnson's heavy work load.

Instead, DC and Warner Bros decided to make a Shazam movie first and then make a separate Black Adam solo film whenever Johnson is available.

It's great to know that the Black Adam movie has now been cancelled, but sadly it looks like we will have to wait a bit longer until the film comes out.

Johnson is too busy working on other projects at the moment to start filming!
