It’s about time Dwayne The Rock Johnson becomes a super hero!
Well, he isn’t really a super hero – more of an antihero but still, it’s about time.
DC’s Black Adam stars Dwayne The Rock Johnson as Black Adam.
According to the synpnosis:
Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods—and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.
Producer Hiram Garcia explained in an interview with Collider last year.
“This is a character with amazing abilities. He has super speed, can fly, and has world breaking strength to name a few,”
“We wanted to make sure moviegoers feel that throughout the entire movie. You’re not going to see him use super speed just once and then it stops, this is part of his arsenal. It’s common to see abilities fall to the wayside when dealing with characters like that but one of our many goals was to keep continuity there and push the bar in terms of how we do it. For example, the technology we’re using to make Black Adam fly has never been done before. It’s completely unique. It was critical for us to ensure that it felt special, authentic, and real. [Director] Jaume [Collet-Serra] took that to heart. Our special effects’ team are Oscar winners, and we certainly put them to work.”
The movie already looks amazing and um, I have to say, The Rock wears a tight spandex suit quite well!
Black Adam releases in theaters on October 21, 2022. You can watch the trailer below.
