Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has finally been starred in a superhero movie. He found the role he was “born to play” in his upcoming superhero film – And no it’s not the hulk.
Now the star is set to play something different from his usual comedic side.
Johnson was first announced as ‘Black Adam’ way back in 2014 when the character was still set to appear as a villain in ‘Shazam!’ The role evolved over the years, eventually splitting into a separate solo film for the supervillain and occasional antihero.
He teased that the new film has “without question, some of the biggest action sequences I have ever been a part of” and some “breathtaking scenes that I know you’re really going to love.”
“Now, what you’re going to see here is why the hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change,” Johnson told People.com.
‘Black Adam’ hits theatres on July 29, 2022.
However, it doesn’t stop there. The Rock has also been filming a movie set to be released on 12 November 2021 – a Netflix original called ‘Red Notice’.
On Saturday, “the first clip from their massive $130M action blockbuster Red Notice starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot was revealed” and apparently according to Deadline, the crowd went wild. So much so that even the star himself had a few words to share:
Johnson called it “Netflix’s biggest movie ever” and “absolutely massive.”
‘Red Notice’ stars Johnson as the top FBI profile who is forced to work with the world’s best con artist (Reynolds) to capture the world’s greatest thief (Gadot) explains Hollywood Reporter.
