Following the phenomenal success of Kevin Feige’s Marvel Cinematic World (MCU), the DC superhero universe was under a lot of pressure to provide something similar.
But Warner Bros. is used to coping with such demands, and its films like as Man of Steel, Justice League, Wonder Woman, Shazam, and Matt Reeves’ impending Batman standalone picture have all responded forcefully.
Despite the fact that the globe has seen a slew of superhero films in the previous decade or so, fans can’t get enough, and they’ll get precisely what they want.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars, has been cast as the anti-hero Black Adam in DC’s upcoming Black Adam film. The Rock is ready to roll. Dwayne Johnson has tweeted out that his eagerly awaited new film Black Adam has wrapped.
“That a wrap on BLACK ADAM Incredible journey. Hardest undertaking of my entire career physically & mentally. Worth every second. Boundless gratitude to my 1,000+ crew members, actors and director, Jaume Collet-Serra. The hierarchy of power in DC Universe is changing.” The Black Adam story is complicated. Thousands of years before Billy Batson became Captain Marvel, the wizard Shazam selected another for the role. Teth-Adam, aka “Mighty Adam,” was a hero at first. But then absolute power corrupted absolutely. He became Black Adam, and was exiled by Shazam.
While the film has been kept under wraps thus far, the former WWE superstar has now provided a sneak glimpse that will pique the interest of series fans. Dwayne Johnson discussed the tragic past of his Black Adam character in an Instagram post, and how it will affect the film’s grim tone.
“If you know the comic book mythology, then you know where his pain comes from. His rage. His wife and children killed. His people brutally enslaved. He is not a superhero, but rather a champion. Champion of the poor and beaten down. Champion of the people. And he is the most unstoppable force in the DC UNIVERSE,” Johnson wrote in an Instagram post.
