Dwayne Johnson Black Adam script pays homage to Johnny Cash
Well, things are starting to go right for Black Adam fans. While the movie had to suffer a delay in production due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it seems that it’s just a matter of days before the upcoming film starts shooting. Recently, Black Adam leading star and producer Dwayne Johnson took up to Instagram to reveal the first look at his copy of script (via SuperHeroHype). In the video, Johnson paid homage to the legendary Johnny Cash, showing that a quote from The Man in Black is featured right on the first page.
“I can’t believe it, considering how hard we worked over the years on this,” Johnson said. “It feels good to be on the verge of bringing Black Adam to life after all this time.”

Last year, Johnson revealed that the titular antihero would lock horns with the Justice Society of America in the film. DC’s ensemble of heroes has enrolled Noah Centineo, Aldis Hodge, and Quintessa Swindell, who will portray Atom Smasher, Hawkman, and Cyclone, respectively. The producers have yet to cast Dr. Fate.
Black Adam will kick-off production in April. The producers have yet to announce an official release date for it.
