The Rock has confirmed that he will star in a Black Adam DC film taking on Henry Cavill as Superman.
Two great action movie stars facing off against each other as two iconic DC characters. Is this too good to be true or is this actually happening? Well, there have been rumours floating around for a while now but it’s finally been confirmed by The Rock himself. Yep, this shit is finally happening! We will see The Rock as Black Adam in a Black Adam DC film coming soon, and he’ll face off against Superman.
The Rock will star in his own solo DC movie as Black Adam after fighting superman.
It’s about time that The Rock found his way into the world of DC movies and we welcome him with open arms. He was pretty much born to play Black Adam. He’s got the physique, the looks, the grittiness. Pretty much everything you would expect to bring this villain to life on the big screen.
It looks like he’ll make his DC debut as a co-star to Henry Cavill’s superman but it turns out this is just a taste of things to come. After building the hype with this upcoming movie, The Rock will then get his very own Solo Black Adam DC film. Watch out Marvel, you’ve got some competition!
The Rock has previously said that the reason he decided to take on the role as Black Adam was that he’s just more interesting than other DC characters like Captain Marvel. He said that Black Adam has more complexity with the fact that he started out as a slave then transitioned into a villain with subtle undertones of anti-hero, and I couldn’t agree more. Who doesn’t want to see The Rock play a troubled, super strong and tough villain/anti-hero?
The Rock confirms that Black Adam is the first of a bunch of cool DC films coming up.
You can expect a solo movie for the arch-nemesis, Shazam, in the works.
The Rock has stated:
“We’ve had great conversations with Geoff Johns and everyone over at DC. It’s an exciting time right now for everyone at DC because they are in a process now where they are building out [the DC universe] really nicely.”
We’ve seen this with Wonder Women already but for sure you can expect a shit tonne of more awesome DC films to complete with all the marvel films. It’s about time!
