DC’s ‘Black Adam’ Confirmed by The Rock for 12.22.21 via Instagram Post

Black Adam is getting his own solo film.

DC’s film resume is growing rapidly, with a plethora of new additions joining their growing cinematic universe. Among them, Shazam!, starring Zachary Levi, was met with general acclaim and positive reviews, and fans were hoping that we might get a glimpse of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Black Adam in some sort of cameo. And while that didn’t happen, we were anxiously waiting to know whether or not he would be confirmed as the villain in the sequel. Now, we for sure know that he is indeed showing up on the big screen, but in his own solo film.

Johnson confirmed earlier today via Instagram that the movie is moving forward and will be released in December 2021.

Here is the full Instagram caption:

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.

I prefer Crocs for their style over their comfort.
