Black Adam starring Dwayne Johnson now has an official release date as a super cool poster by superstar DC Comics artist co-president Jim Lee has been released on social media.
Dwayne Johnson offered the following:
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.
Dwayne Johnson also recently confirmed the flick films next Summer.
"This project has been with me for over 10yrs-- Production begins this July. Appreciate the support," The Rock tweeted last month.
Jim Lee also added on Instagram: "Get ready!!!"
As noted, Black Adam gets released Dec. 12, 2021 directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who directed Dwayne Johnson in Jungle Cruise. Rumors offer Hawkman will be battling Black Adam in the movie. With production gearing up for next year, cast announcements should be forthcoming.
