We’re finally getting some more details about Dwayne Johnson’s role as Black Adam, which has been largely under wraps for a while. Recently, Johnson spoke with We Got This Covered where he talked a lot about what attracted him to the role of Black Adam.
“I love the idea that is backstory is that he starts off as a slave. I feel like when somebody is oppressed that way but has a bigger ambition and a greater belief than the oppression that’s holding him down – that’s a powerful place to be. [His] family getting killed, coming back from that; There’s a lot of elements about Black Adam that have attracted me for a very, very, very, very, very long time.
I’m excited about it, man. You know, and Black Adam has been with me probably going ten years that Black Adam is in our zone. And [there’s] the great meetings we’ve been having with Geoff Johns and the guys over at DC, Warner Bros, New Line.”
Black Adam will be a part of the DCEU and it’ll be fun to see Dwayne Johnson play a villain. Are you excited to see Johnson in the role of Black Adam? When do you think we’ll finally get to see him? Let us know in the comments below!
