Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Reveals Black Adam Concept Art With Release date!
The DC Cinematic Universe just got a whole lot BIGGER!
Dwayne Johnson first announced his meetings with DC & Warner Bros. a few years ago before Batman V Superman, teasing that he is in talks with joining the DCEU but would only take on a role that could 'beat Superman'. Rumours flew around that he could be playing John Stewart aka Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter or even Cyborg.
It was until The Rock was in an interview and asked about his role in the DCEU, to which he laughed and teased "just say the word". Fans freaked out and all fingers pointed to the word...SHAZAM!
It was shortly after that, The Rock took the news to his social media to announce his role as Black Adam. We were teased with a short CGI cameo in the SHAZAM! movie which was also co-produced by The Rock's Seven Bucks Productions, but no further details on Black Adam were said until today!
Check out this amazing concept art in collaboration with Boss Logic and Jim Lee as The Rock explains his connection to the character himself!
"The Man in Black ⚡️ Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero. Having cool superpowers, fighting for what’s right and always protecting the people. It all changed for me, when I was 10yrs old and was first introduced to the greatest superhero of all time - SUPERMAN. As a kid, Superman was the hero I always wanted to be. But, a few years into my fantasy, I realized that Superman was the hero, I could never be. I was too rebellious. Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority. 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. I’m honored to join the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to become, BLACK ADAM. 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. BLACK ADAM 12.22.21 ⚡️ Huge thank you to my friends, @jimlee and @bosslogic for this first time ever bad ass collaboration."
Can the marketing on the amount of '2's in the release date BE any better?!
Black Adam is officially set to release for 12.22.21
