The DC slate is already jam-packed, and the variety of initiatives turns into significantly extra substantial if you consider movies that have not seen a lot progress just lately. One such instance of that’s the Black Adam solo movie, which has managed to maintain Dwayne Johnson signed on because the titular villain (or anti-hero?) for fairly a while, however has additionally offered us with few different concrete developments. Now it seems that has modified in a reasonably vital means, because the venture appears to be eyeing Adam Sztykiel to sort out its script.
A brand new report from The Tracking Board signifies that the upcoming Black Adam solo film has lined up screenwriter Adam Sztykiel to pen its screenplay. Primarily recognized for his work within the comedy realm, Sztykiel’s most distinguished on-screen credit are lighter movies like Due Date and Product of Honor, slightly than big-budget blockbusters. On tv, he’s recognized for his work on NBC’s Undateable. For the time being, there is no such thing as a phrase as to the course through which he intends to take the overarching story of the Black Adam solo film, in order that looks like one of many subsequent orders of enterprise for everybody concerned.
The hiring of somebody like Adam Sztykiel may give us a significantly better understanding of what Warner Bros. and DC Leisure need to accomplish with the Black Adam film. Given his expertise on this planet of comedy, one may moderately assume that he might need to benefit from Dwayne Johnson’s well-established comedic chops and go for a lighter tone than a number of the earlier DC movies. Maybe not a full-blown comedy, however one thing a bit funnier — suppose Ant-Man or Thor: Ragnarok within the Marvel Extended Universe.
This information comes contemporary off of the recent hiring of Chuck star Zachary Levi to painting Black Adam’s extra heroic rival, Shazam, and each bulletins make sense after we pair them side-by-side, as Levi himself is already a well known comedic actor. It seems to be like DC is working to determine a specific tone for the Shazam nook of the DCEU, and whereas Black Adam is presently not anticipated to look within the Shazam solo film (he’ll get his personal film first), placing a comedy author behind the villain may go a great distance in direction of easing the transition to his first encounter with Billy Batson.
As of proper now, the Black Adam solo film doesn’t have a set launch date. Nevertheless, the Shazam solo film is predicted to begin filming in February of next year and debut in theaters in April 2019.
