The Rock Has Always Dreamed of Playing a Superhero, or a Character Like Black Adam

By

The Rock has just announced the first details of his new movie, and fans are already on tenterhooks. 

Black Adam will hit theatres on Dec. 22, 2021, with the internet's boyfriend-status actor playing the leading role. 

Following the success of the 2019 Shazam!, the new Warner Bros. production will chronicle the adventures of a supervillain whose life story dates all the way back to the mysterious world of ancient Egypt. 

Ready to find out more about the Rock's role in the Black Adam movie?

The Rock teased the first news about Black Adam via an Instagram post. 

"Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero. Having cool superpowers, fighting for what’s right and always protecting the people," wrote the actor in the emotionally-charged post. 

As he explained, he wanted to become a superhero in order to be able to support the good cause. However, that's not quite what he signed up for with Black Adam.
