Dwayne Johnson says that he is not satisfied with the first cut of Black Adam.
This year’s live broadcast of DC FanDome showcased a number of highly anticipated projects on DC’s upcoming film list. However, one of the highlights was the first look at Dwayne Johnson’s highly anticipated film Black Adam.
In a recent interview with Collider, Dwayne Johnson shared his views on the current cut of Black Adam, stating that, although it is “in a really good place,” he is “happy, yet not satisfied” with the cut, and wants it to be better.
I think we’re in a really good place,” Johnson explained. “I think now’s the time where… we take our time, yet there has to be some expediency to it because we do have to have the movie ready by next summer. I think Jaume delivered a great first cut. And, you know, Black Adam is the kind of movie that, from [the] beginning, it had the makings and the bones to be something unique. It all started I think with the ambition, but then it all started with our director, Jaume Collet-Serra, and I think that he is an ambitious director. He, again, comes from that cadre of very talented Spanish filmmakers who want to get in and want to disrupt industry and disrupt craft, and he does it I think in such a great way. I also like that… At this point of the cut, there is a clear and defining anchor to Black Adam’s code, and I think that’s really important as we look to build out the character, as we look to build out the franchise, as we also look to build out the JSA and introduce them and launch them properly as well. I am happy, yet not satisfied, and we will continue to put the work in. And the teaser that we showed about three weeks ago, it was a good indicator of what’s to come.”
The revealed footage of Black Adam convincingly demonstrated that Teth-Adam is resolutely different from the other headliners of DCEU. According to Dwayne Johnson, the filmmakers are trying hard to give fans a perfect movie to celebrate.
