From heartthrob to superhero!
‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ star Noah Centineo has found a new franchise to hop on. After playing his breakout role Peter Kavinsky in the Netflix rom-com, Centineo is slated to join Dwayne Johnson for the New Line/DC movie ‘Black Adam’. The ‘Shazam!’ spinoff garnered much anticipation after the original became a blockbuster hit.
Noah Centineo is joining the DC Extended Universe as the superhero Atom Smasher. The character has the ability to manipulate his size, strength, and durability. As his name suggests, Atom smasher can do this by controlling his molecular structure. Centineo will play the rival of sorts to Johnson’s titular anti-hero character Black Adam.
2020 has placed a lot of setbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the movie industry is no exception. Black Adam’s production schedule was halted which was initially scheduled to begin shooting this summer. While it’s unclear when the franchise can begin filming, according to Johnson they’re aiming to start around August or September.
Information on the storyline is quite hushed but we know the screenplay is penned by Adam Sztykiel. The film will be helmed by Jaume Collet-Serra whose last project ‘Jungle Cruise’ also stars Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.
The release date for Black Adam is in December 2021 we can expect changes to this prior announcement. Fans, however, can look forward to the upcoming DC FanDome instead. It’s a Warner Bros online event that will run for 24 hours on August 22, 2020.
