BLACK ADAM Producer Reveals Why The Movie Was Recently Pushed Back By Three Months

We recently learned that Black Adam will now release on October 21 after originally being scheduled to hit theaters on July 29, and producer Hiram Garcia has now offered an explanation.

Back in March, Warner Bros. announced that three of its upcoming DCEU movies, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, The Flash and Black Adam, would now hit theaters a little later than originally advertised.

No specific reason for the delays was given at the time, but some assumed it might have something to do with The Flash star Ezra Miller's troubling behaviour. Now, producer Hiram Garcia has set the record straight by revealing that in Black Adam's case, at least, it was simply a matter of allowing more time for the film's FX to be completed.

"I think we're just in a world right now where there was a huge and understandable freeze-up when the pandemic hit and a lot of productions were put on hold," Garcia told The Wrap. "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."

"They're busting their ass and we're so grateful for all those VFX houses," he added. "It feels like things are starting to calibrate and I think you'll start to feel less shifts down the line."

This does make more sense than the various conspiracy theories that do the rounds whenever a movie is pushed back, and while Garcia was only speaking for his own movie here, it's probably safe to assume The Flash and Aquaman 2 are in the same boat.

Black Adam will blast into theaters on October 21, after originally being scheduled for release on July 29.
