DC’s next massive project did a good call by casting The People’s Champ in the role of the titular supervillain/hero.

Further, Black Adam’s producer Hiram Garcia provided insight and updates on the upcoming thriller. “Now that the industry has really roared back, the pipeline for VFX is so jammed. Obviously, all these superhero movies just require so much VFX. And we’re just in a situation where the majority of the VFX houses are just completely swamped with work,” Garcia told to TheWrap.

The production and post-production team put more attention into it, only because it has the potential to change the course of DC’s storylines. And interestingly, just as WWE, DC has the brains to get the best out of ‘The Great One’.
