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, producer Collet-Serra talked about the upcoming DCEU film. Collet-Serra stated that the film will disrupt the way in which superhero films are made.
“Black Adam is a disruptor in the DC Comics world, and it has to be a disruptor in the way that we make a superhero movie. I like to be challenged, and I wanted to create new technology, so we developed the way that [Adam] moves, the way that he flies, his costume. And then it trickled down to every other character and the movie itself. But there was always the goal – to be new and unique in the storytelling and in every aspect of it.
Coming together to try to defeat someone who’s undefeatable like Black Adam, creates a lot of interesting situations – without having the pressure to carry the whole movie. That’s a much more fresh way in.”
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.
