Black Adam utilises brand-new technology for superpowers

Worlds of DC movie Black Adam will showcase new technology for Dwayne Johnson’s superpowers.

Considering we’re in a cinematic Golden Age of heroes in capes, this is fascinating news – recently shared by Seven Bucks president of production Hiram Garcia.

“You’re not just going to see him use super-speed for a moment and then it stops,” he told Collider. “This is part of his arsenal.”

Garcia continued his preview of the movie by noting how the tech for Black Adam’s flight sequences has never been showcased before.

“It was critical for us to ensure that it felt special, authentic, and real. Jaume [Collet-Serra, director] took that to heart. Our special effects team are Oscar winners, and we certainly put them to work.”

Switching the conversation over to the character’s unique approach to justice, he also teased: “This guy is an absolute force of nature. A force of nature that dishes out justice the way he wants. Unfortunately not many people walk away from the kind of justice he delivers.
