Dwayne Johnson says we will see Black Adam battle Superman and Batman

02.11.2015

Dwayne Johnson has been teasing us about his role as Black Adam in SHAZAM! for quite a long time. At one point, we were worried that we would not be seeing the actor formerly known as The Rock within the DC Cinematic Universe, but Johnson put those fears to rest with his recent comments to Total Film.

Johnson reiterated his statements that Black Adam would be both a villain and an anti-hero who will bring winking humor to the DC films coming over the next half decade. But, he also confirmed what we all wanted to hear.

“It was all agreed that the worlds are all interconnected. One day you will see Black Adam go at it with Superman or Batman or any of the DC characters.”

Through his career, Dwayne Johnson has primarily played heroes but he has shown a dark edge in movies like DOOM and FASTER that could hint at great things from his portrayal of Black Adam. At the very least, we now know we will see someone with the physical stature to look like he could go toe to toe with Superman.

SHAZAM! is slated to hit theaters on April 5, 2019.

Hope they don't...

screw up the casting for Captain Marvel (Shazam). With the spot on casting of Johnson for Black Adam,
the casting for Captain Marvel needs to be equally good. I'm still in favor of Brandon Molale but he's going have to
work out like a boss. The best scenario would be just to train with Johnson!

Visually he's pretty perfect for the role, perhaps more so a few years back, but he's still as good a choice as anyone looks-wise, and I'd like to think he can bring it with a suitably good performance. The whole Captain Marvel / Shazam thing is trickier because, much like Green Lantern, it can end up being really silly if you don't handle it well. If they end up giving us an appearance by a badass version of Mr Talky Tawny then I'm definitely on board.

Dwayne Johnson is a horrible actor with no range, Southland Tales is unforgivable.

I also think he has never proven he can star in a successful movie. The Fast and Furious movies were going uphill after the 4th with or without him. They tried to make a franchise and failed with Scorpion King (actually they still make them, #4 just came out DTV) and like 10 years later failed again with the recent Hercules movie.

Just call it Justice League vs Black Adam. Would be excited as hell to see Cavill's Superman go head to head against Johnson's Black Adam.
