Jaume Collet-Serra Says BLACK ADAM Is The Dirty Harry of Superheroes, Producer Talks Seeing Dwayne In Costume For The First Time

We’re incredibly excited for the upcoming Black Adam movie, which stars Dwayne Johnson. After years of waiting around and not knowing if it was even going to happen, it’s happening! While the film stars Johnson as the titular character, it was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. What else can we expect from this film?

Well, we’ve seen the costume, which adds to the hype. Now, Hiram Garcia (who is the President of Production of Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions); talked on the costume:

“There’s moments, you know my friend, as a filmmaker where you’re like, ‘I’ll never forget that.’ When he walked out in that costume, it was… Oh, 100%. This was a baby, one of our special babies. Not only was I there, but I was also making sure I was gonna capture that moment on camera to make sure that we never forget that. You’re gonna be blown away when you see it. He’s a walking superhero. He’s been preparing for this role for I feel like over ten years, so to see it come to life in front of you. It was magical, man.”

Collet-Serra also teased about the character of Black Adam, comparing him to Dirty Harry:

“Having just done a romantic adventure comedy where he’s very light, I was really attracted to getting the dark version of Dwayne. Basically, turning him into Clint Eastwood in a Western. I was like, ‘You’re like the Dirty Harry of superheroes’.  didn’t have to convince people that I was right for this one in the same way that I did for Jungle Cruise. It’s like things I’ve done with Liam [Neeson], that tough-guy antihero who has a heart. The world is not black and white. The world is in gray areas, so you need these people that are riding that gray area.”

Who else is excited for Johnson to finally debut as Black Adam?
