“Black Adam” has been in production for an incredibly long time, but during its lengthy gestation period, much of its creative vision has remained surprisingly consistent. Specifically, the movie has always been talked about as being much darker than your average comic book movie, with this skewed tone stemming from the character of Black Adam being unafraid to enact tremendous violence on others.
This vision was apparent as early as 2018 when Hiram Garcia, president of productions at Dwayne Johnson’s production outfit Seven Bucks Production, talked to Collider about what made “Black Adam” so special. Garcia noted that Black Adam being such a brutal anti-hero, not to mention his backstory as a former slave, led to him and Johnson becoming immediately enamored with the character.
Even though at the time there wasn’t even a finished screenplay for “Black Adam,” Garcia was still passionate about the darker, more violent vibes that Black Adam was going to bring to the world of comic book movies. Such passion was strong enough to endure throughout the many years “Black Adam” spent in various states of development.
