Dwayne Johnson recently explained how his Black Adam differs from Superman.

Black Adam has been on a long road to the big screen with Dwayne Johnson attached to the role for years before it finally got under cameras. Filming wrapped recently, and throughout production, Johnson has been teasing his suit, physique, and more.

Black Adam is still over a year away from hitting theaters, but Dwayne Johnson recently explained what sets him apart from Superman while speaking with The Hollywood Reporter:

 “Black Adam has all the powers of Superman, but the difference is he is blessed with magic. And also, by a code of ethics in the world of superheroes, they don’t kill the bad guys, but Black Adam does. There were a lot of elements like that that made me feel this is a real opportunity here. I felt like everything that I had done in the past in terms of my career, all the movies that I had done over the decades, even the ones that didn’t do well, all led to this particular role.”

Do you think Black Adam can take down Superman? Feel free to speculate in the comments section below!

In addition to Dwayne Johnson, the DC film stars Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate. Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, James Cusati-Moyer, and Bodhi Sabongui are also on board in undisclosed roles.

Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions are producing the movie with Beau Flynn of FlynnPictureCo. FlynnPictureCo’s Scott Sheldon serves as an executive producer.

The DC project is currently scheduled to hit theaters on July 29, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding Black Adam and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more exclusive video content.
