Black Adam And Superman to have a face off?
Fans of DC Comics are salivating over the concept of this epic clash
Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, while promoting his upcoming film Baywatch, in which he stars alongside Priyanka Chopra, opened up about his upcoming stint as the DC supervillain Black Adam.
"It’s definitely going to happen. We’ve had great conversations with Geoff Johns and everyone over at DC. It’s an exciting time right now because they are in process of building out [their DC universe] really nicely. We have a really cool surprise for Black Adam, which has to do with where the character will be introduced," said Johnson.
The Black Adam character is one that fans have been waiting for ever since Shazam, the live-action feature film, was announced in the early 2000s. Though the project was shelved, the makers resurrected it after the success of DC's own Man of Steel. Shazam, which is scheduled to hit the screens in 2019, was initially planned as the first film to introduce Black Adam. But now it's speculated that a stand-alone film based on the character might beat Shazam to the punch. What's more the Hercules star might have a duel with Superman played by Henry Cavill. When asked about the possibility of such a massive showdown, Dwayne smiled and said, "That’s coming. It’s in the cards."
