A disruptive film is what its director Jaume Collet-Serra calls it. According to the filmmaker Black adam it will forever change the way superhero movies are made. The contrast comes in telling a story that occurred millions of years ago, but with a technology of the future that even James Cameron would not have dreamed of.
The upcoming DC movie has become the conversation this week thanks to the cover published by the magazine Total Film and the statements that the creative team granted to such medium. With just a small glimpse of the film revealed during the past DC FanDome, the reality is that the details of the film remain largely a mystery. Reason that for now we must trust the words of those involved.
Precisely Jaume Collet-Serra spoke with the publication to talk a little about his experience when shooting a film of this caliber. Like Dwayne Johnson, the Spanish also assured that they have paid attention to details and that even the film can mean a watershed for superhero movies.
“Black Adam is a disruptor in the DC Comics world, and he has to be a disruptor in the way we make a superhero movie,” he explained. “I like to be challenged and wanted to create new technology, so we developed the way [Adam] he moves, the way he flies, his wardrobe. And then this leaked out to all the other characters and into the movie itself. But there was always the goal: to be new and unique in the narrative and in all its aspects.
In fact Black adam it won’t be a superhero movie. The character played by Johnson is an antihero from the comics and as such his mission in this film will be to put the Justice Society of America in trouble. This 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.
Indeed, Serra also referred to all of them. He explained how having more than one gifted character in the film helped him not to put the full 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 to defeat someone who is invincible like Black Adam creates a lot of interesting situations, without having the pressure to carry 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 confronting 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 a fan dream for the big screen.
Black adam It will premiere in theaters on July 29, 2022.
The entry Black Adam will change the way we make superhero movies was first published on Cinema PREMIERE.
