Cool Concept Art: Dwayne Johnson as Shazam’s Black Adam

It was a couple of years ago that Dwayne Johnson confirmed he would be playing Black Adam in the Shazam movie. Adam is usually a bad guy in the DC comics, but has been known to help out the heroes in certain situations.

The film isn’t due out until 2019, but Juan Hugo Martinez put together this great piece that shows what Johnson could look like in the Warner Bros. DC Cinematic Universe. It is not official, but does show how it could fit.

Johnson has talked about how the Shazam movie fits in with the other DC comic films while chatting to Total Film (via GamesRadar).

I think Black Adam is going to grow into becoming an anti-hero. It’s all written within the spirit of respecting and paying homage to the comics. As we know, Black Adam started out as a slave. When he’s given the powers, he utilised them. Then in the wake of his powers, tragedy strikes, which turns his sentiment and tone in terms of psychology.

It was all agreed that the worlds are all interconnected… One day you will see Black Adam go at it with Superman or Batman or any of the DC characters. But that said, there’s a great independence to Black Adam from the DC world, allowing us to inject, not only viciousness, but also winking humour.
