DC fans have many films to look forward to including the upcoming Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman 1984, The Batman and The Suicide Squad. What’s next after that? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has confirmed via his social media that Black Adam will be coming to theaters on December 22, 2021. Waiting for two years is going to be a long time, so in addition to the release date announcement, fans were also treated with an art piece of Johnson as the antihero created by Jim Lee and BossLogic.

The art features Black Adam flying in the sky with electricity surrounding his body. He’s hovering above the rubble, and a skeleton can be seen.

Johnson has commented on how his superhero dream is coming true with his attachment to the project.

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.
BLACK ADAM
