Rumor: Current ‘Black Adam’ Script Pulls Heavily From Comic “Black Adam: The Dark Age”
Adam Sztykiel completed a new draft of the ‘Black Adam’ script last month and The GWW is hearing that it will pull very heavily from Peter Tomasi and Doug Mahnke’s Black Adam: The Dark Age book.
The Dark Age follows Teth-Adam as he seeks to restore his lost powers and resurrect his deceased wife. This journey brings him into conflict with the Justice Society of America, specifically Hawkman, who is currently the main villain of the movie. That Hashtag Show first reported that Hawkman and Black Adam will face off in the movie. They were also the first to report that Justice Society members Stargirl and Atom Smasher would be in the movie as well.
Dwayne Johnson is starring in the pic with production slated to begin in March. A director search is ongoing and no release date has been set.
