A budding star is stepping into the comic book world! Noah Centineo joins the cast of New Line/DC’s Black Adam, according to The Hollywood Reporter!
Centineo will portray Atom Smasher, a character who possess the ability to manipulate his molecular structure. He can shift into any size, and control his level of strength. Atom Smasher’s origins are in the fictional Middle Eastern kingdom of Kahndaq. The character most recently appeared in an episode of The CW’s The Flash.
The main plot of Black Adam is being kept under wraps. However, in the comics, Black Adam is traditionally the main adversary of Shazam. With a sequel coming to 2019’s Shazam!, the possibilities are endless in this situation.
Jaume Collet-Serra will direct the project, while Adam Sztykiel penned the script. Dwayne Johnson is the only other actor cast in the film at the moment. Scott Sheldon will serve as executive producer.
