The Throne of Black Adam
For the millions of you who know the mythology of Black Adam – you understand the significance and power of this throne.
I promised myself that I wouldn’t sit on it until we shot the scene where Black Adam earns the right to take his sacred place up there.
His throne is an important thing.
So I always put my big ass on the steps and did my homework.
We finally shot “the iconic moment”, and what a moment it was.
The worldwide debut of the BLACK ADAM trailer will take place on June 8th.
The American release of cinecomic has been postponed to next 21 October , so that the work on the visual effects can be completed with relative calm: the studies that deal with it are in fact full of commitments, especially due to the delays linked to the pandemic. so the times have lengthened (also for other blockbusters, as shown by the slippages of the last few months).
While waiting for the trailer, you can see the photos below.
