The whole world knows that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is all set to play the role of DC character ‘Black Adam’, but how would the studio be planning to introduce the supervillain.
If reports are to be believed, then Johnson’s ‘Black Adam’ is thought to be appearing as the main villain in the upcoming ‘Suicide Squad 2’, according to Contactmusic.
While Black Adam is usually depicted as the nemesis of Captain Marvel, aka Shazam (who will get a movie of his own in 2019), he has certainly been involved with the Suicide Squad within the comic book world.
Apparently, the current pitch for the sequel is that it will revolve around Harley Quinn and her team trying to hunt down a lost “weapon of mass destruction”.
Few details are known as of yet about the film, except that filming is set to begin in October 2018 with Gavin O’Connor (‘The Accountant’) apparently to helm the movie.
Recently, the ‘Baywatch’ star teased the Black Adam film by saying, “We have a really cool surprise for Black Adam that I can’t reveal, in terms of where we will see Black Adam being introduced.”
Meanwhile, it’s unknown as of yet whether or not Black Adam will appear in ‘Shazam!’, which will be directed by David F. Sandberg and star Zachary Levi in the lead role.
