Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to Instagram to announce the release date for his forthcoming DC superhero film, “Black Adam.” The film will drop December 22, 2021.
In his post, Johnson said he always dreamed about being a superhero while growing up, and in particular loved Superman. According to Johnson, Black Adam is “blessed by magic with the powers equal to Superman, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people – but he does it his way. Truth and justice – the BLACK ADAM way,” he wrote. “This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together.”
The character was created by Otto Binder and C. C. Beck and is the enemy of Shazam, who is played by Zachary Levi in the DC Extended Universe.
