It’s Been An Eternity: The Rock Reveals ‘Black Adam’ Poster & Release Date

It seems like an eternity. Back in 2014, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced that he would be playing a DC character in the movies, eventually revealing it would be Black Adam. It was originally thought that Black Adam would debut the Shazam! movie, but that idea was dispelled long before the movie debuted. In 2017, a solo Black Adam movie was confirmed but with no release date. Well, we finally have a release date cooked up by The Rock himself.

The Rock took to Instagram today and posted a Black Adam poster by Jim Lee with the movie’s release date: 12/22/21:

If you don’t see it, the post came with his following commentary:

The Man in Black ⚡️
Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero. Having cool superpowers, fighting for what’s right and always protecting the people.
It all changed for me, when I was 10yrs old and was first introduced to the greatest superhero of all time – SUPERMAN.
As a kid, Superman was the hero I always wanted to be.
But, a few years into my fantasy, I realized that Superman was the hero, I could never be.
I was too rebellious. Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority.
Despite my troubles, I was still a good kid with a good heart – I just liked to do things my way.
Now, years later as a man, with the same DNA I had as a kid – my superhero dreams have come true.
I’m honored to join the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to become, BLACK ADAM.
BLACK ADAM is blessed by magic with the powers equal to SUPERMAN, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line.
He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people – but he does it his way.
Truth and justice – the BLACK ADAM way.
This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together.

Huge thank you to my friends, @jimlee and @bosslogic for this first time ever bad ass collaboration.
