Dwayne Johnson promises 'wildest' version of Black Adam
The Hollywood star described Black Adam as a ruthless keeper of justice
Dwayne Johnson is all set to change the hierarchy of power in the superhero universe with his Black Adam avatar. The Hollywood star described Black Adam as a ruthless keeper of justice.
Johnson pulled back the curtain on his upcoming film Black Adam at the DC Fandome by sharing some concept art trailers for the film, which has not yet been shot. He said that they are in the "very early processes of this creation."
"I can promise you this, I give you my word. We are going to go beyond your wildest expectations," said Johnson, who also confirmed that the film includes Justice Society of America characters Hawkman, Doctor Fate, Cyclone, and Atom Smasher (played by Noah Centineo).
"The superheroes have to exhibit a little bit of restraint when it comes to taking care of the bad guys. This idea that you could take all of Black Adam's powers and he does not practice restraint, that makes for a really powerful combination, and one that's explosive, one that's very dangerous, and one that is ultimately very likable," he said.
"He's a ruthless keeper of justice. He is the judge, the jury and executioner," Johnson added.
Johnson has been working on developing Black Adam for a decade. The Warner Bros movie is being helmed by Jungle Cruise director Jaume Collet-Serra.
The shooting for the film was supposed to start this year, but the plan was changed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic
