Watching wrestling as a kid both fascinated and horrified me. To have to step into a ring, in front of tens of thousands of cheering and jeering audience members, was no simple feat in my eyes.
If The Rock wasn’t your favorite in the late ’90s and early 2000s, we probably didn’t talk much. It’s no wonder he was the go-to pick to portray Black Adam on the big screen, and during Saturday’s DC FanDome panel, he made it clear to other heroes and heroines in the DC universe he wasn’t to be trifled with.
The panel ran 15 minutes and featured Johnson standing in front of Egyptian themed ruins, taking questions from excited fans, and even sharing a charming bromance moment with fellow actor Noah Centineo, who confirmed his role as Atom Smasher in the upcoming film.
Included in the panel was a teaser that told the story of Black Adam, with the help of renowned artist BossLogic. Afterward, Johnson took to Twitter to further establish Black Adam’s dominance, while taking a few jabs at some of DC’s heroes.
Black Adam is set to release holiday 2021.
