The movie stars Dwayne Johnson as Teth-Adam / Black Adam alongside Noah Centineo, Aldis Hodge, Sarah Shahi, Quintessa Swindell, and Pierce Brosnan.
Dwayne Johnson recently took to Instagram to confirm that reshoots – a standard practice for big-budget effects-heavy movies are underway:

Black Adam: “Five thousand years ago, Kahndaq was a melting pot of cultures, wealth, power and magic. But most of us had nothing, except for the chains around our necks. Kahndaq needed a hero… instead, they got me. I did what needed to be done, and they imprisoned me for it. Now, five thousand years later, I am free. And I give you my word: no one will ever stop me again.”
Black Adam is scheduled to be released in the United States on October 21, 2022
