After more than a decade in development hell, Black Adam has finally entered production. Touting an all-star cast with Pierce Brosnan as Doctor FateQuintessa Swindell as CycloneAldis Hodge as Hawkman, and Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, the Justice Society of America is truly shaping up nicely.

Other cast members like Marwan Kenzari are included in the cast with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and the rest of these heroes, with Kenzari potentially playing the villain. Sarah Shahi also joined the cast as a Kahndaq professor, who is rumored to be Adrianna Tomaz, a.k.a. Isis.

@arianadearmas on Twitter spotted and shared photos from Tessa Anderson, the stunt double for Sarah Shahi, potentially showing off Adrianna Tomaz's outfit in Black Adam on the movie's set of an ancient tomb.

According to the fan who captured the images, it was on Anderson's Instagram Stories, which have already expired.


The same ancient tomb set seen in these new photos may be the same one seen several weeks ago under construction.

It's certainly exciting to see such an elaborately built set on such a huge soundstage. Fans are also curious to see if production will move outside, which will give them a chance to see more leaks and maybe even see Hodge in full gear as Hawkman.

As for Adrianna Tomaz herself, Sarah Shahi's stunt double certainly looks lovely in the dress, which Shahi will also be wearing. Interestingly, her outfit seems to be completely clean and unharmed, despite being in such an old tomb. However, it's possible that it might not actually be an ancient tomb, but a tomb moved into a modern museum perhaps, hence the fancy dress.

It would also make sense since Shahi's character was described as a Kahndaq professor, likely specializing in archeology. Her character could be the one that connects all the dots since several of the characters have origins in Egypt too.

The Dwayne Johnson-starring  Black Adam is currently set for theatrical release on July 29, 2022.
