The Rock is here with a Heroic Blast! “Black Adam” is a spinoff of Warner Bros. and New Line’s “Shazam!,” which premiered in 2019. Johnson was considered to play Black Adam as the movie’s villain, but the plan fell through.
The Rock announced the movie last year on his Instagram account, ”I’m honored to join the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to become Black Adam,” he wrote. ”Black Adam is blessed by magic with the powers equal to Superman, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one-of-a-kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people but he does it his way. Truth and justice, the Black Adam way. This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together.”
Johnson posted the image on Instagram ahead of the FanDome panel.

The hierarchy of power in the DC UNIVERSE is about to change. BLACK ADAM arrives TOMORROW at #DCFanDome. Personally, I salute my Warner Bros & DC partners for creating this historic opportunity for fans to absorb our entire DC UNIVERSE while we all continue to manage the challenges of COVID. Well done. 👏🏾👏🏾🥃 The man in black is coming to crush them all. #BLACKADAM⚡️
