Dwayne Johnson is promoting Furious 7, and he had the chance to talk about Black Adam in the DC cinematic universe. In an interview with IGN, he reveals whether he thinks his character will be joining the Justice League in the future.

“I think so, and I think you always want to leave that creatively open, that he could join the Justice League and I think… that’s the fun part of creating this character right now and everybody involved, from the studio, from New Line, to Warner Bros as well, to the writer, our producing partners.

Johnson then talks about how his character will have to earn being a hero, and that means he’ll need to start from the bottom as a slave.

You want to… you definitely want to engage in his heroic side, but that has to be earned and with the mythology of Black Adam starting off as a slave, because when you start off as a slave, just inherently, there’s things in your DNA that piss you off. And that’s the bottomline, so I think we have to respect and pay homage to the true mythology and then the heroic side will come down the line, but I think it’s important and we all feel it’s important and I believe the fans at IGN feel it’s important to make sure the homage is paid at the beginning because then you have a stronger foundation to stand on, and so he will become an anti-hero, but at first… daddy’s got to go to work.”

We know Black Adam will be featured in the Shazam movie, but that won’t be until about 4 years later. He may possibly make an appearance in the Justice League films, with the first one coming in 2017.

Justice League: Part One comes out on November 17, 2017. Shazam hits theaters on April 5, 2019.
