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.

“Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero,” Johnson recalled in his social post.

The Rock has shown supernatural ability in the ring and on the big screen throughout his career. Now, The Most Electrifying Man In Entertainment will don the dark cape and start his journey as the “rebellious, one of a kind superhero” he’s always dreamed of playing.

The role has long been in the works, as The Rock first teased his commitment to portray Shazam’s nemesis in the DC Comics project. The long-anticipated movie now has a premiere date set, as The People’s Champion gets ready to become The People’s Supervillain.
