Singlehandedly saving the DC Extended Universe, Black Adam stars Dwayne Johnson, Pierce Brosnan, and Sarah Shahi. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, the film is expected to score big at the box office.
While the continuity of the film still remains a mystery, many suspect cameo appearances from other members of the Justice League including Flash and Wonder Woman might be possible. On the other hand, a cameo appearance by Henry Cavill’s Superman seems unlikely, despite persistent rumors.
Dwayne Johnson’s work on Black Adam
Promised to “disrupt” the superhero movie landscape, Dwayne Johnson has been working overtime, promoting the film and shaking hands. In an interview with MensJournal, the actor described the incredible work he put in to look fit for the character, he said:
“I believe I was born to play this character. But in all honesty, this project has been with me for 10 ten years now. The process began when we started to stand the material up and… I started to build an exhaustive training program with my coach Dave Rienzi. I wanted to come into this in the best shape of my career.”
Despite the movie starting production a few years ago, he’s been working behind the scenes to have it produced for many years. He had previously stated there was no character he felt connected to than Black Adam.
