Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson needs no introduction to most Americans. The Rock rose to Hollywood superstardom from the world of professional wrestling. His movies have brought in billions of dollars from the box office. He’s surely an icon in pop culture.
In October, Dwayne Johnson will transform into Black Adam for his first role in the DC Universe. But before he makes his on-screen debut as the infamous anti-hero (and sworn nemesis of Shazam), “The Rock” will be miniaturized in the form of everyone’s favorite Funko Pop! collectibles.
The new “Black Adam” Funko Pop! collection just dropped. The upcoming DC feature adaptation has been in the works for more than a decade. Johnson was considered for the role of Black Adam as early as 2007. The actor was set to play the superhero in 2014’s “Shazam!” but after a plot change, he only appeared as a magical holograph in a short scene.
This won’t be The Rock’s first Funko Pop treatment. The superstar was previously featured in Funko Pops from WWE, Jungle Cruise, Fast Franchise, and so many more already. Considering how long fans have had to wait for the movie, they’ll likely be excited to get their hands on these new collectibles to hold them over before its October premiere.
Black Adam is directed by Jungle Cruise’s Jaume Collett-Serra, and will also feature Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fatte, and Sarah Shahi as Adrianna Tomaz. Meanwhile, you can shop the entire Funko Pop! “Black Adam” collection here. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
