Though having recently been taken off the release slate, Black Adam doesn’t seem to be slowing down its development behind the scenes with casting becoming more and more frequent as of late. With the recent addition of Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, that only leaves a few more to be cast out of the characters we know will have a presence in the film.
Recent casting news points to Sarah Shahi being in talks to portray the female lead of the film, Adrianna Tomaz, better known as Isis in the comics. Tomaz is Teth-Adams love interest in the film and is also a mother to a son who has yet to be cast. Adrianna was once a slave who was freed by Black Adam. After he killed her slavers, she served as council to Adam as he ruled over Kahndaq and the two soon wed. Adrianna wields the amulet of Isis and when she speaks the words “I am Isis” is infused with the powers of the goddess and given the ability to control the forces of nature as well as speed, strength, and durability.
Black Adam will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and currently has no set release date but is set to begin filming early next year. The film will feature the likes of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the titular character along with introducing the Justice Society America currently made up of Aldis Hodge as Hawkman and Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, with Dr Fate and Cyclone remaining uncast.
