Black Adam: Sarah Shahi Joins Cast For DC Film

Deadline is reporting that Sarah Shahi is the latest name to join the cast of the upcoming DC film Black Adam.


Black Adam originated in DC Comics as a corrupted, ancient Egyptian predecessor of Captain Marvel/Shazam, who fought his way to modern times to challenge the hero and the Shazam Family. In recent times in the comics however, Black Adam has evolved into a more complex and conflicted antihero, with his origins tied to the fictional Middle Eastern kingdom of Kahndaq.


The report states that Sarah Shahi (whose recent credits include City On A Hill and The Rooke) will be playing the role of a university professor and freedom fighter leading the resistance in Kahndaq.


Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani wrote the latest draft of the screenplay, with the previous written by Adam Sztykiel. Jaume Collet-Serra is attached to direct, Dwayne Johnson will be producing alongside Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia under their Seven Bucks Productions banner, as well as Beau Flynn of FlynnPictureCo. Scott Sheldon of FlynnPictureCo will also serve as executive producer.  Black Adam is being scheduled to commence production in late 2020 or spring 2021.


Sarah Shahi will join a cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Noah Centineo and Aldis Hodge.


Black Adam is currently scheduled for cinematic release on the 22nd December 2021.
