DC Films president Walter Hamada is expected to step down after Black Adam.
According to THR, Hamada almost left following the cancellation of Batgirl by Warner Bros. Discovery. However, the executive agreed to stay until mid-October.
A source revealed that Warner Bros. Pictures Group, Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy will oversee DC until David Zaslav decides on new leadership.
Zaslav recently revealed his stance on Batgirl’s cancellation, stating that the film was not good enough to be released.
Hamada has been in the position since 2018, and since then, the executive has signed important agreements with directors James Gunn and Matt Reeves in the elaboration of new projects.
Black Adam movie hits theaters
In addition to finally allowing Dwayne Johnson to shine in the superhero realm after more than a decade of being tied to the project in some form or style, the upcoming Black Adam film will also shine the spotlight on the Justice Society of America, the DC Comics’ oldest superhero team.
Among the DCEU team members is the wind-handling Cyclone, who will be played by Netflix actress Quintessa Swindell.
It was also announced that Noah Centineo, also a Netflix actor – from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, will be Atom Crusher.
Next up, The Invisible Man actor Aldis Hodge was cast as Hawkman and Sex/Life’s Sarah Shahi as Adrianna, the leader of a resistance movement.
The cast is closed with Pierce Brosnan as the mighty Doctor Fate.
Dwayne Jonson’s character will fight the Justice Society of America in the present day, and we’ll also go back to ancient times to find out how the man formerly known as Teth-Adam gained his powers (which was hinted at in Shazam!).
Behind the camera, Jungle Cruise’s Jaume Collet-Serra is directing, with Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani having written the final draft of the script.
Black Adam hits theaters on October 20, 2022.
