In the comic world, Black Adam is the arch-rival of the superhero Shazam. During his introduction in 1945, the antagonist character was a corrupted, ancient Egyptian antecedent of the superhero, who chased his way down to modern times to challenge Shazam. Later, Black Adam turned out to be a sullied anti-hero out to clear his name. The New 52 has made further modification on him, presenting him with a unique level of prominence in the entire DC Comic Universe.

According to Dwayne Johnson’s latest notes in the social networking site Twitter, his Black Adam is going to be more of a modern and complex version. The wrestler-turned-actor coins the word ‘anti-hero’ to describe the role of Black Adam. He expects to ensure balance between ruthlessness and charm in the character. Dwayne’s Black Adam, according to the hints in his words, is not going to be a typical super villain, instead, there will be some magnetism that attracts the audience and makes the character a compelling and complicated one.
