The Rock Confirms That His Black Adam Character Will Battle Superman

The Rock Confirms That His Black Adam Character Will Battle Superman

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has been attached to the DC Comic character of Black Adam for nearly a decade.

The superhero is pretty badass, so I can see why Johnson wants the story to be brought to the cinema.

Black Adam has unlimited stamina, supernatural speed, super strength, instant access to scholarly knowledge and he can fly.

The film was shelved in 2009, but after the success of DC's Man of Steel, New Line Cinema resurrected the project.

The anti-hero movie was originally set for release in 2019, but film executives have now decided to split the story into two flicks to include the story of Shazam.

However, lips have remained sealed about the project and no one knows when we'll get to see The Rock as a supervillain.

Luckily, Johnson has provided a tiny detail about what we can expect.

During his promotional tour for Baywatch, the wrestler-turned-actor says: "It's definitely going to happen, sure. We've had great conversations with Geoff Johns and everyone over at DC.

"It's an exciting time right now for everyone at DC because they are in a process now where they are building out [their DC universe] really nicely."

When pressed on whether we'll see Henry Cavill as Superman take on Johnson's Black Adam, The Rock says: "One fine day... that's coming. That's in the cards."

Fans first got wind of the project last year when Johnson posted a photo on Instagram of him and Cavill.

Now, speculation is high about which of the next DC Comic movies will feature Black Adam.

MoviePlot suspects it could be Wonder Woman, Aquaman or Justice League. The movie site says that Wonder Woman does deal with gods and that type of mythology so a cameo could happen.

It will hit theatres in June, however, so there is doubt that Johnson's anti-hero will make an appearance with virtually no promotion of his role.

But the Hollywood Reporter's Borys Kit tweeted this...

Aquaman is expected to be released at the end of 2018 so we may have a long time before we'll get any confirmation of a Black Adam appearance.
