Black Adam: Dwayne Johnson Teases Character Development

Black Adam is, as we like to simplify things, the established villain in DC’s Shazam! (to be released April 5, 2019).

DC’s slate until 2020 also includes the upcoming Suicide Squad, two Justice League movies, and four solos: Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Green Lantern.

But Shazam! is already in the public eye, and it’s not because of whatever marketing machine set in motion. It’s because lead man Dwayne The Rock Johnson is such a charismatic and popular actor we all wait to see starring in a comic book movie!

Dwayne Johnson is so keen on playing Black Adam that he didn’t hesitate to make it public back in 2014 via his Twitter account, dropping a most telling quote and confession about his role: “Kneel at his feet or get crushed by his boot.’ My honor to become.. #BlackAdam #TheAntiHero #DCComics."

Now, a new wave of enthusiasm and possible indications about Black Adam’s development come from Dwayne Johnson.

Black Adam: “a unique type of villain”

Well, that’s how The Rock describes his character in an interview with Hey U Guys. But how exactly is Black Adam unique?
