Black Adam producer hypes up The Rock's superpowers in upcoming DCEU film

It's only fitting that a new brand of superhero utilizes brand new technology in order to come to life.


Dwayne Johnson is everywhere these days. After going all-in on his Hollywood career, the former WWE superstar has either starred in a multitude of blockbuster standalone films or joined other successful movie franchises and universes.

Black Adam isn't just unlike any other superhero or villain before him. The technology used to bring him to the big screen will be different as well.

Less than a year from now, Johnson is set to do the latter when Black Adam premieres in the summer of 2022.

It's definitely going to be a long wait before that happens. In the meantime, fans can delight themselves in all the good things that Johnson and the rest of the crew, as well as other cast members, have to say about the upcoming DCEU film.

The latest hype-generating statement comes from one of the anti-hero movie's producers, Hiram Garcia, as he took the time to sit down with Collider to talk more about Black Adam.

What kind of technology will Black Adam utilize?

Johnson's DCEU debut can't come any sooner.

Dwayne Johnson has been linked to the role of the titular anti-hero since 2007. Now, he is finally set to take flight as Black Adam in July 2022. As it appears, the upcoming DCEU film will reward patient fans for their long wait.

Although The Rock hasn't stopped hyping up just how powerful Black Adam is and how his arrival is going to mess up the hierarchy of power of the DCEU, another prominent member of the film's production, this time someone from behind the scenes, has joined him in getting fans even more excited for Johnson's debut in the DC Extended Universe.

As revealed in Garcia's interview, Black Adam will take advantage of brand new technology to ensure all his powers are on full display. He claims that Black Adam will look nothing like fans have ever seen before, in and out of the DCEU. In particular, Garcia singled out Black Adam's flying as something that will utilize new technology.

Unfortunately, Garcia didn't dive deep into the details about exactly what kind of technology Black Adam will use. However, this shouldn't come off as a surprise if you've followed the film's development for a while.

A couple of weeks back, Johnson talked about how the film took advantage of the best camera tech available. For example, the high-speed camera used for the film can shoot Johnson at up to 960 frames per second, which is significantly higher than the 24 frames per second that most movies use. Of course, the result of all of this is something that we'll have to wait for a while to see.

It will definitely be interesting to see what kind of tech Black Adam will utilize. Here's to hoping that Black Adam's first trailer lives up to all of the hype that Johnson and now, Garcia, are generating for the unique superhero film.
