Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson needs no introduction when it comes to the pro wrestling world as he is still regarded as one of the all-time greats. He is also a dominant force in Hollywood and brings huge star power to any film he acts in. The Rock is also a businessman and a very conniving one at that.
The Rock is also involved with DC as he will be portraying the role of Black Adam in DCEU’s upcoming film of the same name. He had previously given an idea how his Black Adam suit would look like.
On top of that, The Rock also provided the background for his character Black Adam, where he hinted that Black Adam is even stronger than Superman.
While being interviewed by Variety, Black Adam producer Hiram Garcia stated that people will be blown away after they see The Rock in his Black Adam costume.
“There’s moments, you know my friend, as a filmmaker where you’re like, ‘I’ll never forget that.’ When he walked out in that costume, it was… Oh, 100%. This was a baby, one of our special babies. Not only was I there, but I was also making sure I was gonna capture that moment on camera to make sure that we never forget that. You’re gonna be blown away when you see it. He’s a walking superhero. He’s been preparing for this role for I feel like over ten years, so to see it come to life in front of you. It was magical, man.”
Other than Black Adam, The Rock is also set to star in another DC movie called DC League of Super-Pets. Black Adam is slated to release in theaters on July 29, 2022, and we will have to see whether it will turn out to be a big winner for the DCEU.
