After starring in Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw Hobbs, Fighting With My Family and recently released Jumanji: The Next Level, Dwayne Johnson has officially announced that he has begun shooting for the much much-awaited film, Black Adam. Yes, it’s finally happening and we are hell excited about that! The Rock recently took to his Instagram handle to announce that he’s started training for the role of Black Adam ahead of the film going into production this summer. He teased that Black Adam is the 'hierarchy of power' in the DC Universe and he is about to change, signaling a new era in the franchise's history.
For the uninitiated, The Rock's Black Adam character is the arch-nemesis of Shazam which was released this year April starring Asher Angel and Zachary Levi as Billy Batson / Shazam, respectively. The project was delayed several times due to Johnson’s extremely busy schedule. However, the former WWE star is ready and will be kicking off 2020 by training extremely hard for the character. After Joaquin Phoenix's Joker, here comes another anti-hero Black Adam to completely sweep you off your feet. Announcing his prep-work, he shared an animated video of Black Adam while also revealing the release date of the film and if you're expecting this film to release this year, sorry folks, you're are in for some disappointment as the film will be releasing next year December.
