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.
However, the movie is scheduled to release against James Cameron’s upcoming Avatar sequel. Both the films will premiere together on the same Christmas season. Black Adam will release just five days after Fox and Disney’s Avatar 2 premiere.
Black Adam: First-Look Art
The good news of the release date also came with a first-look art of Black Adam. And just like DC comics, he looks as evil as he is. The supervillain is in a black-golden costume along with a black-rugged cape. This black-golden theme enlights his power of thunder. Also, the bald head and tremendous physique are highlighting Dwayne as how he actually looks.
Dwayne Shared His Desire Of Being A Superhero
In the post itself, he shared his childhood wish of how he always wanted to become a superhero, like Superman. The long-note mentioned that while growing up, he wanted to have that cool superpower and also fight for what’s right and protecting the people who needs it.
Johnson also continued that as a youngster, Superman was his hero, and he wanted to be like that. However, after a few years into fantasy, Johnson realized that Superman was the hero, he could never be. As he added, he is too loud, too resistant to convention and authority, and likes to do things his way.

However, Johnson then came back to recent times and counted Black Adam as “blessed by magic with the powers equal to Superman.” Although the former one doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line, he added. He also thanked the opportunity to join the DC Universe.
As per WWE, The Rock, who has delivered the supernatural ability in the ring and on the big screen as well throughout his career,” will now “don the dark cape and start his adventure as the “rebellious, one of a kind superhero” he’s always dreamed of playing.”
