Dwayne Johnson On Black Adam: There Were 'A Lot Of Elements' That Attracted Him To Role. He discusses meetings with Geoff Johns.

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!
