‘Black Adam’ To Start Production In July, 2020:
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson revealed in a tweet that “Black Adam” will start production in July, 2020: “This project has been with me for over 10yrs. Production begins this July.”
Johnson, who has been attached to the role since 2008, will produce “Black Adam” with Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia via their Seven Bucks Productions banner, along with Beau Flynn’s FlynnPictureCo. Jaume Collet-Serra will direct.
Black Adam didn’t show up in David F. Sandberg’s “Shazam!” although Johnson’s character, a famous villain to Shazam, did. “Shazam!” director David F. Sandberg said the reason for that was because both characters needed their own movie to be introduced to audiences.
One thing worth noting, though — Black Adam does show up for a split-second in “Shazam!” When the Wizard first summons Billy Batson to the Rock of Eternity, the Wizard tells the story that thousands of years ago, he had chosen a champion to be worthy of his powers, only for that champion to cause death and destruction. A golden hologram appears inside the Rock of Eternity as the Wizard tells the story, clearly showing the previous champion, Black Adam, who turned to the dark side and used his powers for evil, resulting in the Seven Deadly Sins being unleashed.
‘The Batman’ Casts Paul Dano as The Riddler:
Matt Reeves has found his Riddler for The Batman. Paul Dano has joined the film as the classic villain, Warner Bros. announced Thursday.
Dano’s version of the character will be named Edward Nashton, a departure from the comic books in which he goes by the name Edward Nygma. Frank Gorshin and John Astin played the villain in the 1960s TV series, while Jim Carrey played him in 1995’s Batman Forever, directed by Joel Schumacher.
Robert Pattinson is starring in The Batman, with Zoe Kravitz to play Catwoman and Jeffrey Wright on board as Batman ally Commissioner Gordon. Jonah Hill was at one point eyeing a role in the film as either Riddler or The Penguin, but the deal did not come to fruition.
Zoe Kravitz to Play Catwoman in ‘The Batman’:

Pre-production on the Warner Bros.-DC Comics pic is expected to start this summer. No official start date has been set, although insiders tell Variety that filming could start in late 2019 or early 2020. “The Batman” is scheduled to hit theaters June 25, 2021.
