Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has posted an Instagram photo which shows he and Henry Cavill sharing a drink, captioned: “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Black Adam and Superman”, with the hashtag #DCWorldsCollide among others.
After announcing that he would play Black Adam as long as two years ago, this tease comes as a welcome reminder of what the future has in store for DC fans.
Black Adam’s first appearance is reported to be as the villain in the standalone movie Shazam!, currently scheduled for release in April 2019. The film is expected to follow Billy Batson, an orphan who is given the ability to become an adult superhero with a single magic word.
Although a finished script is in place, according to ComicBook, Johnson is the only confirmed cast member so we still can’t be sure how or when he and Cavill will meet on screen. We can however be confident that in his anti-hero/villain capacity, Dwayne Johnson will bring some winking humor to future DC movies. Not forgetting a physique that was without doubt made for involvement in the DC Cinematic Universe.
