We can all smell what the Rock is cooking right now, and that’s his role as Black Adam. Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson loves to be in the spotlight and is a wonderful entertainer. Johnson has been tagged as Black Adam way back in 2008. He was originally supposed to be the arch-nemesis in a solo Shazam film but things were recently changed to give us a solo Black Adam film instead. The joys of the Rock’s star power in both the film industry and WWE Universe. This statement proves true during his press day for his upcoming film Baywatch. According to Johnson he’s about to have a throw down with Cavill’s Superman and his arrival to the DCEU may be sooner than we think. during his interview with Fandango’s Nikki Novak he was asked about the status of the Black Adam movie.
“It’s definitely going to happen for sure” he says. “We’ve had great conversations with Geoff Johns and everyone over at DC. It’s an exciting time right now for everyone at DC because they are in a process now where they are building out [their DC Universe] really nicely. We have a really cool surprise for Black Adam that I can’t reveal, in terms of where we will see Black Adam being introduced.”
Always the entertaining tease, what does this mean for the character? Will we see a Shazam movie sooner than we think? Does this mean he’s going to make a cameo appearance in Justice League? All we know for sure is that there’s a surprise in store for us DC fans and Black Adam and Superman are gonna throw down. Johnson further said “One fine day…that’s coming. That’s in the cards.” with his famous smirk.
