Speaking to Digital Spy, Black Adam producer Hiram Garcia explains why the movie was delayed. “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.
“Now that the industry has really roared back, the pipeline for VFX is so jammed,” he told. “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.”
Finally, Black Adam will hit theaters on October 21, 2022.
