Initially set to be introduced in Shazam!, by January 2017 the production studios involved divided the narrative of William "Billy" Batson / Shazam and Black Adam in order to focus on the latter's superhero origin, and downfall into villainy.[2] By October 2017, Adam Sztykiel was hired as the screenwriter.[3] In November 2017, TheWrap reported that the super-villain might be introduced in the Suicide Squad 2 before the solo film.[4] Co-producer Hiram Garcia stated the film will be gritty and violent, similar to the comics.[5]


In September 2014, Dwayne Johnson was cast to portray Black Adam in the DC Extended Universe.[6]


Principal photography is scheduled to begin in late 2019.[7] In April 2018, Johnson said that the script of the film had been completed and it might start filming at the end of 2019, after completing Jumanji 3 and Red Notice.[8]
