Dwayne Johnson recently revealed to his fans and followers that he had joined the DC Universe and would soon be living his dream, playing a superhero in an upcoming movie.
Taking to his social media, Dwayne let his 162m fans know that he was ready to play the Black Adam in an upcoming DC movie.
“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,” wrote Dwayne on his Instagram.
Adding further, The Rock added how he realized how he could never be Super Man. “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.”
Explaining how he could connect the rebellious nature to the superhero he was going to play, Johnson further added, “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.”
Ending his heartfelt note, Dawyne did talk about how this role was different than whatever had had done before. “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 releases in December 2021.
