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. He also loves keeping himself in the best physical shape possible.
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 to Total Film, The Rock talked about his Black Adam character eventually facing Superman in the DCEU. The Rock made it clear that he is confident that will happen, regardless of who portrays Superman.
So, let’s make sure we respect tradition and mythology, but let’s not be handcuffed creatively. We can do anything if we keep the audience first. So to me, there’s a battle that’s going to go down one day, between Black Adam and Superman. I don’t know who that Superman is going to be, and I don’t know who’s going to play him. That’s OK. I don’t need to know right now. But I’m confident in knowing that [laughs]. And that’s based out of what fans want. We worked backwards from there.
In fact, The Rock had mentioned this fact a couple of years ago as well, where he said that Black Adam has the exact same powers as Superman. 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.
