Dwayne Johnson weighed in on the possibility of seeing Black Adam take on Superman in the future.
After years of waiting, Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam will begin production this summer. Of course, some fans are hoping to see Dwayne Johnson’s incarnation of the DC anti-hero take on Superman, although that possibility remains uncertain as Warner Bros. is reportedly shelving the Man of Steel for the time being.
However, Dwayne Johnson offered fans a glimmer of hope during a lengthy Instagram video in which he delves into why he’s excited to play Black Adam. At one point during the video, the topic of a Black Adam and Superman showdown is raised, to which Dwayne Johnson simply says, “maybe down the road.”

How excited am I to play, BLACK ADAM⚡️? Very. I dive into more detail on the “why” and the character’s mythology as well as a few key filmmakers who are ready to bring Black Adam’s story to life as we begin shooting this summer. How do I find balance in my wildly busy life? Easily one of my most asked questions, since finding our balance & wellness is something we all continue to strive for daily in our busy lives. My family. My gym. My pick up truck No “yes” people. And my @teremana ?? Thanks for the great questions. Stay healthy, take care of one another and we’ll pull thru this.

Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam will introduce Hawkman, Doctor Fate, and the Justice Society of America to the DC Extended Universe. Warner Bros. and DC’s Shazam! was originally going to feature Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam before the decision was made to give the character his own standalone film. Here is the official synopsis for the Shazam! movie:
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 quick.
Shazam! is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
