A disruptive film is what its director Jaume Collet-Serra calls it. According to the filmmaker, Black Adamwhose trailer you can see, it will forever change the way superhero movies are made. The contrast becomes telling a story that happened millions of years ago, but with a technology from the future that not even James Cameron would have dreamed of.
With just a small glimpse of the film revealed during the past DC FanDome, the reality is that the film’s ins and outs have been mostly shrouded in mystery.
Jaume Collet-Serra spoke with TotalFilm to talk a little about his experience shooting a film of this caliber. Like Dwayne Johnson did, the Spaniard also assured that they have paid attention to details and that even the film can mean a turning point for superhero movies.
“Black Adam is a disruptor in the world of DC Comics, and he has to be a disruptor in the way we make a superhero movie,” he explained. “I like to be challenged and I wanted to create new technology, so we developed the way that [Adam] he moves, the way he flies, his wardrobe. And then this trickled down to all the other characters and the movie itself. But there was always the goal: to be new and unique in the storytelling and in all its aspects.”
Black Adam’s team
In fact Black Adam It won’t be a superhero movie. The character played by Johnson is a comic book antihero and as such his mission in this film will be to embarrass the Justice Society of America. Such a group will be made up of Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate.
Precisely Serra also referred to all of them. He explained how having more than one gifted character in the film helped him not put the entire weight of the film on one character.
“You have a couple of seasoned veterans, like Hawkman and Doctor Fate, and you have a couple of rookies like Atom Smasher and Cyclone. And that chemistry and coming together to try and take down someone who is invincible like Black Adam creates a lot of interesting situations, without having the pressure of carrying the whole movie. That’s a much cooler way to get in.”
Black Adam He also promises to be introduced to the DC cinematic universe, with the intention of one day facing him with Superman and Shazam. Johnson has already explained that he has no idea which Man of Steel he will face, but he is confident in achieving the fans’ dream on the big screen.
Black Adam It will be released in theaters on October 20, 2022.
