Dwayne Johnson Unveils ‘Black Adam’ Costume In DC Fandome Social Media Teaser

Dwayne Johnson shares first look of Black Adam, film to release on 22 December, 2021

Dwayne Johnson on Friday gave his followers a glimpse of his superhero character look from the much-anticipated movie Black Adam.

“The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change. Black Adam arrives TOMORROW at #DCFandDome. He’s coming to crush them all. #ManInBlack #BLACKADAM,” tweeted Johnson. The movie opens Dec. 22, 2021.

Black Adam, an anti-hero, is a spinoff of Shazam!. Johnson was initially going to play Black Adam in that movie, but that didn’t happen. Jaume Collet-Serra, who worked with Johnson on Disney’s Jungle Cruise, is directing Black Adam. The movie is cleared to shoot in Georgia early next year.

However, first Johnson has to finish Netflix’s Red Notice, which stopped production because of COVID-19. Johnson announced earlier this month that Red Notice would resume filming in September in “the safest and most aggressive ‘quarantined bubble’”.

The Rock first announced about this superhero movie last year in an Instagram post with an illustrational picture of the character, and also an emotional caption describing what the role meant to him.

“The DC comic’s superhero character is blessed by magic with powers equal to Superman. Adam is rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who will always do right for the people,” wrote Johnson while describing his character.

“But, a few years into my fantasy, I realised that Superman was the hero, I could never be. I was too rebellious. Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority,” he added.

“Despite my troubles, I was still a good kid with a good heart — I just liked to do things my way. Now, years later as a man, with the same DNA I had as a kid – my superhero dreams have come true,” the Hobbs and Shaw actor continued.

Adding that the role “is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career”, the star continued, “I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together.”
