Fans have been anxiously awaiting more information regarding DC’s upcoming Black Adam film, and in a recent Instagram post, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson gave fans an extremely tiny glimpse at things.
In a recent post, Johnson shared a series of photos of himself in a board meeting for Zoa Energy. At the bottom of the post, though, Johnson teased that fans with a keen eye would spot that he was actually wearing his Black Adam costume during the meeting, albeit covered up in a black cloak. As Johnson is currently shooting the film, he’s got to stay in costume during any meetings outside of that.
“If you swipe left and zoom in, you’ll see a small piece of my gold Black Adam [costume] peeking out from under my black cloak of secrecy (my weekly board meetings all take place during my 30min breaks from shooting Black Adam),” wrote Johnson.
The photo itself (which you can see below) isn’t too much of a look, however. Fans can just spot some gold from Black Adam’s iconic golden lightning bolt sticking out near the top of the costume. For a more in-depth look, fans will have to be patient as filming wraps up and more is released.

Black Adam will be led by Dwayne Johnson, who has been attached to play the titular anti-hero for over a decade now. It will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (The Shallows), who worked with Johnson on Disney’s upcoming Jungle Cruise, from a screenplay written by Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshiryani.
The film will also feature the live-action film introduction of the Justice Society of America, whose members will be portrayed by Pierce Brosnan (The Foreigner) as Doctor Fate, Noah Centineo (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before) as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell (Trinkets) as Cyclone and Aldis Hodge (One Night in Miami) as Hawkman. The film will also feature Sarah Shahi (City on a Hill), Marwan Kenzari (Aladdin) and Bodhi Sabongui (Legends of Tomorrow) though their roles are currently being kept under wraps for now.
Based on the DC Comics character created by Otto Binder and C.C. Beck, the film is being produced by Johnson and FlynnPicturesCo’s Beau Flynn alongside Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions, while Scott Sheldon will be overseeing the project for FlynnPictureCo.
Originally scheduled for December 2021 release, Black Adam has recently been pushed back to July 29, 2022.
