Black Adam’s lack of release date could prove to be concerning to most fans, but the potential addition of Sarah Shahi as Isis could serve as good news in the meantime. For those unaware, DC comics lore indicate that Adrianna Tomaz is the eventual wife of Black Adam.
The Illuminerdi shared in a report that Warner Bros. offered a major role to Rush Hour 3 and City on a Hill actress Sarah Shahi to play Adrianna Tomaz a.k.a. Isis in Black Adam. The role is being described as a “female lead and love interest” to Dwayne Johnson’s titular character.
That being said, the inclusion of Shahi’s character in the film could essentially mean that the history of the anti-hero will be fleshed out even more while staying true to its comic book roots. The power set of Isis is similar to Black Adam, but the source is an amulet of the Goddess of the same name. It’s a safe bet that the origin of Isis will be thoroughly explored as well, given the close ties of the character to Teth Adam.
