Yep! Dwayne is officially a part of the DC film universe. Dwayne John will star in the superhero movie Black Adam which will hit the screens in December 2021. What’s more interesting is Black Adam, which was expected to clash with the much-awaited Avatar 2 in the box office will now release the week after the latter’s release.
If you think what Black Adam has to do in a superhero movie while he was seen always seen as a supervillain in the comics and also was shown as an antagonist in the movie Shazam earlier this year, where Superman and Shazam together fight against Black Adam. But the Hobbs and Shaw actor refers to Black Adam, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people and believes in truth and justice.
The DC’s newest superhero shared a post on Instagram which showed off concept art of the villainous Black Adam and his caption (a long note) proclaimed how excited and honored the actor is about playing the role.

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.
And to make your wait more interesting and exciting the wrestler turned actor also shared a Twitter post for his fans to know that ‘Joker’ cinematographer Larry Sher will be shooting the upcoming superhero flick.
After all, these delightful turns of events have left the DC comic fans in excitement, and all we can do is wait for more updates from the production team to know what the upcoming flick would be about.
Will it be a face-off film between Shazam and Black Adam, a straight-up villainous flick, the origin of Black Adam or to expect both a hero and a villain…. Keep guessing and surely will have something interesting to look forward to!
