Amer’s role in the Dwayne Johnson-starring superhero film is still being kept under wraps.
Palestinian-American stand-up comedian Mo Amer has joined the cast list of the new superhero movie Black Adam from DC.
Mo Amer, whose real name is Mohammed Mustafa Amer, is known for his Netflix comedy special Mo Amer: The Vagabond and the award-winning Hulu sitcom Ramy“.
His role is still being kept under wraps, but Amer will team up with Dwayne Johnson, Marwan Kenzari, Pierce Brosnan, Aldis Hoge and Quintessa Swindell in the much-anticipated film.
The movie was initially scheduled for a December 2021 release, but has been pushed back owing to the pandemic. Production is looking to begin in April in Atlanta, but the film remains without a release date.
The thriller is being directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who also directed Disney’s upcoming Jungle Cruise.
Black Adam, often viewed as the nemesis of Shazam, will be the star of the eponymous movie, with Johnson playing the title role.
