During the virtual DC FanDome event, Johnson had asserted that he was "born to play Black Adam" in the DCEU.
"This character, this film, this universe has been a gigantic passion project of mine for a very long time and I've worked so hard with these hands, my fingers to the bone on this project because it's the kind of project that I know comes along once in a lifetime. And the truth is, I was born to play Black Adam," the 49-year-old actor added.
For the uninitiated, Black Adam is a spin-off from Warner Bros and New Line Cinema's Shazam. The character, Black Adam, first appeared in DC Comics in the 1940s as a villain corrupted by power. He became an anti-hero in the early 2000s.
