Black Adam has started shooting, and we're keeping everything crossed that some set photos surface to give us a first look at the members of the Justice Society of America in action. Concept art has obviously offered a sneak peek of what we can expect, but seeing the likes of Dwayne Johnson, Aldis Hodge, and Pierce Brosnan suited up promises to be a mind-blowing experience.
One cast member who we don't know much about is Sarah Shahi. There's been plenty of speculation about her role in the DC Comics adaptation, but she's now appeared to have confirmed which character she'll play.
"Today is my first day filming #blackadam. I was cast in this role a year ago. I've had ups, downs, lefts and rights. They all led me here," Shahi wrote on Instagram. "Very proud to represent my fellow middle eastern brothers and sisters as Adrianna. Let's continue to lift each other up as we tell each other's stories. Human stories. Connecting stories. Stories we all have inside of us."
Adrianna? Yeah, that's got to be Adrianna Tomaz. Better known as Isis (we're guessing that name will be changed for Black Adam), she's been portrayed as the anti-hero's bride, and, after receiving the Amulet of Isis, she gained a number of superhuman powers including the ability to control the elements.
We're definitely excited to see what she brings to the table, and will hopefully have more details to share with you soon. Shahi is best known for her roles in The L Word and Sex/Life.
The rest of the Black Adam cast includes Noah Centineo, Quintessa Swindell, Marwan Kenzari, James Cusati-Moyer, and Bodhi Sabongui. It's currently set to be released on July 29th, 2022.
