Black Adam

During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Quintessa Swindell revealed she “studied with expert dancers and researched early modern dance pioneers like Loie Fuller and Isadora Duncan” in preparation to play the spinning superhero, Cyclone, in Black Adam.

It became a very personal experience. I feel like when you’re moving your body, you start to feel yourself in different ways, and you want to accentuate different things. Through movement, there’s an emotional release. So when I was training, I became more comfortable in my body, and really empowered in a way that I honestly didn’t think would happen.
