Since the start of the pandemic, the entertainment industry has been plagued by delays due to business closures, social distancing and the shutdown of the world economy. Fans of the Marvel and DC Universes are arguably the worst affected by delays, with movies they’ve seen delayed by months or even years. Fortunately, a massive increase in TV content fills that void.
As the world continues to move closer to normal, the era of delays has persisted, with both Marvel and DC making major shifts to their upcoming rosters recently.Those delays include nearly every upcoming movie, including Dwayne Johnson’s black adamit was forced to move from July 29 to October 21, having moved from its original December 2021 location.
First cast in the role more than a decade ago, the former wrestler will finally make his debut as the ruler of Karndak Secondmissing adam. The titular antihero will be accompanied by the Justice Society of America, which includes Doctor Fate, Atom Smasher, Hawkman, and Cyclone.
As fans eagerly await the highly anticipated blockbuster, a black adam The producer explained what caused the delay.
Why was Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam delayed?
in a recent interview Package, black adam Producer Hiram Garcia explains why the Dwayne Johnson blockbuster pushed its previous July 29 release date to October 21.
Garcia revealed that after years of delays due to the pandemic, “VFX pipeline is too stuck” Most VFX houses now “Totally overwhelmed with work:”
“I think when the pandemic hit and a lot of productions were put on hold, we were in a huge and understandably frozen world right now. Now that the industry has really recovered, the VFX pipeline is very crowded. Obviously, all this super Hero movies all need so much VFX, and we’re just in a situation where most VFX companies are totally busy working.”
this black adam Producer Explains VFX Stuck Is Caused “Comprehensive seismic changes” when suppliers try “Adapt to the amount of VFX they have to do:”
“I think that’s why you’re seeing seismic changes across the board, you continue to see those huge properties just move further down. And it’s just a matter of vendors being able to adapt to the amount of VFX they have to do and the shots they have to do.”
The production president of The Rock’s Seven Bucks Productions went on to thank the VFX company and shared his hopes: “Things start to calibrate” This should lead to “Less shifts:”
“They’re pulling out all the stops, and we’re very grateful to all these VFX companies. It feels like things are starting to adjust, and I think you’re starting to feel less change down the line.”
The era of delays is coming to an end
Modern blockbusters are full of visual effects, and the superhero genre is notorious for its CGI-heavy nature. Contrary to popular belief, few major studios design their VFX in-house, and most outsource the work to private visual effects firms.
Studios are only now starting to produce TV content with the visual equivalent of a two-hour blockbuster. This, coupled with increased theatrical production of franchises such as the MCU, has led to a dramatic increase in demand for VFX that the pandemic has made difficult to support.
Those houses are only now able to start working at full capacity again as the pandemic forces many to start working from home as office capacity is reduced to allow for social distancing. Delays should taper off as they start to catch up with the workload.
In recent years, fans have had to endure massive delays ranging from days to years. Fortunately, the studio’s constant output of content means DC and Marvel fans haven’t seen any major gaps in content since 2020, and hopefully there won’t be any more.
