What will be the movie “Black Adam” be about?
Black Adam is expected to be Dwayne’s most major and highest-profile role yet. Dwayne noted that the movie will share similarities with “Green Lantern,” in which he played Luke Cage, a superhero without superpowers whose abilities are derived from an alien device or object of some kind. Dwayne stated during his Comic-Con panel for Shazam! that Black Adam follows a similar suit: “This character has powers but it’s nothing like any superhero we’ve seen before.”
When Dwayne Johnson first appeared at the end of “Shazam!” to confront Billy Batson, Dwayne noted that the scene was part of an “endcap” and set up a potential sequel. Dwayne Johnson also told Entertainment Tonight, “I think Black Adam is going to have a big future in DC.”

Dwayne added: “He will have powers; it won’t be anything like any superhero we’ve seen before… He’ll basically rule our world. The only way you can stop him is by killing him.”
