The Rock Explains Why Black Adam is a Hero

No Comments

One of the most interesting (and worrisome) aspects of having Dwayne The Rock Johnson play Black Adam is the fact that the wrestler-turned-actor is best known for playing the good guy in his movies. So it couldn't have been too surprising when the actor told fans at a Q & A session that Black Adam is one of the most interesting heroes he's ever come across in DC Comics.

Known as both a villain for Shazam and an anti-hero, this would be an interesting shift from the comic book version of the character. And the fans are not necessarily in favor of the shift, even though the larger audience, who are less familiar with the character, might welcome it. So maybe some explanation was long overdue.

And, thankfully, the omnipresent The Rock gave it. So what did he mean when he said that Black Adam is a hero? Well, check it out below!


In a nutshell, Black Adam is the hero of his own story, and maybe this is the way we should see the upcoming DCEU character. However, even though he might take down some evil guys, he’ll become the villain when confronted with other DCEU characters (namely, Shazam).

We know that the villains actually make the heroes. So, in a way, having a compelling antagonist is the way to go when trying to make Shazam a DCEU powerhouse.

We'll wait and see. For the moment, we don’t have a release date for Black Adam.
