Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is one of the biggest names in the entire world right now. His brand value is almost limitless 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. It was said that fans will be blown away seeing The Rock in his Black Adam costume. The sneak peek for the film also unveiled a lot.
While speaking with Collider, The Rock talked about Black Adam’s current cut. The Rock revealed that while it is certainly in a good place, he isn’t necessarily satisfied with it.
“I think we’re in a really good place. I think now’s the time where… we take our time, yet there has to be some expediency to it because we do have to have the movie ready by next summer. I think Jaume delivered a great first cut. And, you know, Black Adam is the kind of movie that, from [the] beginning, it had the makings and the bones to be something unique. It all started I think with the ambition, but then it all started with our director, Jaume Collet-Serra, and I think that he is an ambitious director.
He, again, comes from that cadre of very talented Spanish filmmakers who want to get in and want to disrupt industry and disrupt craft, and he does it I think in such a great way. I also like that… At this point of the cut, there is a clear and defining anchor to Black Adam’s code, and I think that’s really important as we look to build out the character, as we look to build out the franchise, as we also look to build out the JSA and introduce them and launch them properly as well. I am happy, yet not satisfied, and we will continue to put the work in. And the teaser that we showed about three weeks ago, it was a good indicator of what’s to come.”
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.
