Black Adam: Uli Latukefu Joins Cast; Hawkman Now Filming

As Black Adam is now filming it is learned that Uli Latukefu has joined the cast which sees Dwayne Johnson star as the titular character.

Uli Latukefu is actually playing the young Dwayne Johnson Young Rock TV series that debuted in February and airs on NBC.

Latukefu’s role is unknown in Black Adam, but since Johnson handpicked the actor to play himself in the NBC series, fans are guessing Latukefu could play another version of Black Adam before he is chosen by the wizard and gets powers. So once he gets his powers, it’s Dwayne Johnson.
