Black Adam star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson recently confirmed that cameras are now rolling on the DC Comics adventure, and we have word on another last-minute casting addition.

Following the news that up-and-coming Canadian-Egyptian actor Bodhi Sabongui has joined the ensemble in a mysterious role, Deadline reports that stand-up comedian Mohammed "Mo" Amer will also appear in the Warner Bros./New Line production. Details on his character are being kept under wraps, however.

Amer is probably best known for his Netflix comedy special Mo Amer: The Vagabond as well as Hulu's acclaimed sitcom Ramy. He's also one-third of the comedy troupe Allah Made Me Funny, and is set to appear in the upcoming comedy feature Americanish.

Amer joins previously announced cast members Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone and Sarah Shahi as Adrianna Tomaz, aka Isis. Marwan Kenzari and James Cusati-Moyer are also on board.

Jungle Cruise director Jaume Collet-Serra is set to helm Black Adam, which has Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions on board as producers along with Beau Flynn of FlynnPictureCo. Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani penned the screenplay, which is based off an early story draft from Adam Sztykiel.

We recently got our first look at some sets being constructed in Georgia, but we'll hopefully get to see more revealing photos now that filming is underway.

Black Adam is set to hit theaters on July 29, 2022.
