He is ruthless. He is unstoppable. He’s probably going to be shirtless. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson opened Saturday’s DC Fandome event, a virtual convention that’s all things DC Universe, by sharing a trailer for the long-awaited Black Adam, archnemesis of Shazam! In the teaser, Johnson talks about how “this character, this film, and this universe has been a gigantic passion project of [his] for a very long time.” And by a long time, The Rock means he’s been signed on to play the role since 2014. However, despite the eight-year wait, Johnson has kept busy with numerous projects like the Fast and Furious movies and even a “historic rap debut.” The DC feature Black Adam will open on July 29, 2022, with Jaume Collet-Serra directing, who also directed Johnson’s Jungle Cruise. Johnson reveals that they have just started the post-production process on the upcoming feature. He teased the sneak preview by saying this clip will show why the hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change.
