The Rock Delivers Christmas Message From Black Adam & Superman

Screen Shot 2016 12 25 at 20 46 58

If you’ve ever wondered what your favorite DC heroes like to drink during the holiday season, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has just gifted you and answer via an image posted on his Instagram.

Johnson, who has teased a role in the DC Extended Universe for some years now, is of course set to star as Black Adam in the upcoming DCEU entry Shazam in 2019. With this, as fans of the DCEU will be well aware, ever since he officially signed on to the film back in 2014, The Rock has been sprinkling reminders of his involvement with the project when and where he can, and it doesn’t looks like he plans on ending 2016 any different.

After sporting a t-shirt featuring the iconic Black Adam logo at the MTV Awards earlier this year, The Rock is back at it again with an Instagram post of him celebrating Christmas over a drink with none other than the DCEU’s Superman, Henry Cavill. If the image alone wasn’t enough to remind you Johnson will be our big screen Black Adam come 2019, then the caption will certainly get you excited.

You can view both the image and caption below:

Of course, 2019 is a little way off at the moment, but if you want to get your DC Extended Universe fix a little sooner then there’s no need to worry. Luckily, although he doesn’t appear in any released footage just yet, Cavill is more than likely set to reprise his role of Superman in next year’s Justice League, and before we even get to that there’s Wonder Woman hitting theaters on June 2, 2017 to look forward to.

    No one can say he’s not amazing.

    That would be awesome if he was the villain for MoS 2 all along.

    Are we still doing this whole “will-he-won’t-he” thing with the Shazam movie?


    This meeting will prove to be epic. 2 of the baddest characters in all of comics.

      Black Adam is epic. Make him dark. Make him tyrannical. Make him terrifying to DCEU humans in the modern world. Picture it: military can’t touch him. Cue DBZ-esque interception in the stratosphere as Supes and Shazam confront him. Commence world-shaking battle.

        Take my money. Right now.

    It’d be cool if Johnson got some kind of cameo or at least was referred to in JL, but I think the movie already wrapped filming.

    Will never see the light of day. I predict 2017 will be dceu’s WATERLOO.

    To be fair (or accurate) they have, or rather used to have the same agent – who also happened to be Dwayne Johnson’s Ex.

    She’s still Cavill’s agent, and that’s probably how they know each other and have known each other since before they both became DC characters.

    So probably more just two buddies meeting up for a drink than anything.
