Dwayne Johnson is already hard at work for his role in the highly-anticipated DC Films project Black Adam.
Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson was rumored to be involved with a DC project since before the release of Zack Snyder’s 2016 DC movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Eventually, it was revealed that he would be playing Black Adam, the arch-nemesis of Shazam. The project was delayed several times, however, due to Dwayne Johnson’s extremely busy schedule. Now, Black Adam has a director, characters are being rumored and confirmed to appear in the movie and Dwayne Johnson is getting ready to play iconic anti-hero.
Earlier this week, Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to boast about how the DC hierarchy is about to change, sharing an animated video of the character and stating that his movie is set to begin filming this summer. You can check out his Instagram post below.

Dwayne Johnson followed up with two other Instagram posts that showed him working out in preperation for his role as Black Adam. The actor teased the begining of “a new era” in the captions:

Dwayne Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions co-produced the Shazam! movie, which is now available on all home media formats. Here’s the official synopsis:
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou.
Black Adam hits theaters on December 22, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news on Dwayne Johnson, Black Adam and the future of the DC Extended Universe!
