Just a few weeks ago, Warner Bros. overhauled its upcoming DC Comics project.Dwayne Johnson’s black adam being moved to later this year, both flash and Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom Pushed to 2023. Shazam!Wrath of the Gods Got the long end of the stick, instead of being bumped, was pulled this December.
Right now, fans are only watching two, instead of 3-4 live-action film projects in 2022. It’s a sad change for many, but on the bright side, at least they’re not all pushed to next year. But what caused the shift in the entire roster?
There may be a few different reasons behind it, but at least part of it lies in Johnson’s black adamthe first one has actually been delayed.
Now, film critic John Campea has at least revealed why the upcoming project about the leader of the Kahndack was pushed to the top, and surprisingly, it’s the same as James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
(Part of) Reason for Black Adam’s Delay Revealed
middle The John Campea Showthe host revealed part of the reason for Dwayne Johnson black adam The original July 29 debut has been delayed to October.
Campea reports that it all boils down to how “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3… [was using] Almost every soundstage of Trillith [Studios]” in Atlanta, Georgia, black adam Not only did the original production take place, but also the locations where the planned reshoots took place:
“black adam The reshoot was originally scheduled for February at Trilith’s studio in Atlanta, where they had their main shoot last year, but nearly every studio at Trilith will be in use until the end of April. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Other smaller projects have been able to make it into Trillith, but black adam More important stages are needed Guardians of the Galaxy There are currently occupations and strikes. So the reshoot schedule wasn’t that big of a deal, it was just a mix of schedules between the different productions at the time. That’s why the movie was delayed in March. The remake was already planned, and Warner Bros. didn’t find the time and/or space to do it until May. “

Both DCEU and MCU projects occupy the same entertainment space, so they’re bound to complement each other at some point, whether it’s box office, splits between fans, or competing for the same storytelling gimmicks (ala the Multiverse). But competing for jobs Room space is not the type of conflict one can predict.
One has to wonder why black adam You cannot simply reshoot in a different location. This is something that Marvel Studios has been doing. It doesn’t matter where the original production is. A remake can happen in a completely different state if desired.
Recently, there have been rumors of an overhaul of its DC Comics division due to the merger of Warner Bros. and Discovery. If this goes in the direction that many fans around the world hope for, the future may see a proper MCU-equivalent network connection project – a more organized and cohesive network than the DCEU is now.
In theory, this could greatly increase the number of simultaneous projects.If there is already a scheduling conflict between the two black adam and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Like this, what will the future hold? There seem to be some bigger struggles ahead for studio spaces.
Only time will tell how everything plays out, but hopefully no matter what happens, the fans will win.
black adam Released later this year on October 21, while Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 It will be released on May 5 next year.
