Black Adam - Release Date poster - Featured - 01

Dwayne Johnson took to social media on Thursday to make it official: Black Adam will hit theaters on Dec. 22, 2021.

While filming has not yet begun, Dwayne Johnson and Warner Bros. apparently are happy enough with where the project stands to announce a Black Adam release date. The last update we had heard placed production beginning in July 2020, so a Dec. 2021 release date seems to fit perfectly.

Johnson posted a lengthy post on Instagram to celebrate the news.

The Man in Black ⚡️ Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero. Having cool superpowers, fighting for what’s right and always protecting the people. It all changed for me, when I was 10yrs old and was first introduced to the greatest superhero of all time – SUPERMAN. As a kid, Superman was the hero I always wanted to be. But, a few years into my fantasy, I realized that Superman was the hero, I could never be. I was too rebellious. Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority. Despite my troubles, I was still a good kid with a good heart – I just liked to do things my way. Now, years later as a man, with the same DNA I had as a kid – my superhero dreams have come true. I’m honored to join the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to become, BLACK ADAM. BLACK ADAM is blessed by magic with the powers equal to SUPERMAN, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people – but he does it his way. Truth and justice – the BLACK ADAM way. This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together. BLACK ADAM 12.22.21 ⚡️ Huge thank you to my friends, @jimlee and @bosslogic for this first time ever bad ass collaboration.

2021 is turning into quite the year for DC films. The Batman will hit theaters on June 25, The Suicide Squad will follow on Aug. 6, and we’ll wrap up the year with Black Adam on Dec. 22.

It seems we’re going to be spending a lot of time at the multiplex in 2021!
