The Man in Black ⚡️ Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero. Having cool superpowers, fighting for what’s right and always protecting the people. It all changed for me, when I was 10yrs old and was first introduced to the greatest superhero of all time - SUPERMAN. As a kid, Superman was the hero I always wanted to be. But, a few years into my fantasy, I realized that Superman was the hero, I could never be. I was too rebellious. Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority. Despite my troubles, I was still a good kid with a good heart - I just liked to do things my way. Now, years later as a man, with the same DNA I had as a kid - my superhero dreams have come true. I’m honored to join the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to become, BLACK ADAM. BLACK ADAM is blessed by magic with the powers equal to SUPERMAN, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people - but he does it his way. Truth and justice - the BLACK ADAM way. This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together. BLACK ADAM 12.22.21 ⚡️ Huge thank you to my friends, @jimlee and @bosslogic for this first time ever bad ass collaboration.

The original plan of the makers was to introduce Dwayne as an antagonist in ‘Shazam!’ itself. That flick had arrived earlier this year, in April, starring Zachary Levi as the protagonist.

The Rock’s casting as a super villain opposite Shazam! had been confirmed, more than five years ago. But the delay in various other franchise movies (and also their average performance) made his arrival so late. Then there were speculations and rumors that he would be introduced in Suicide Squad 2, to be helmed by James Gunn.

Nevertheless, the wait is over now and everyone will be very keen to see their favorite action star doing all the ‘super wizard stuff’ in this film when it arrives in theaters.
Black Adam's character is created by writer Otto Binder. And his movie will likely be an origin story. There’s no other information about the project, as of now.
The superhero film will be releasing two years from now, that is, on December 22, 2021.
