Ezra Miller may have been dominating headlines recently with his behaviour, but let’s not forget that there are several other DC projects in the works. For now, reshoots are ongoing for Black Adam, and we have a new image from the film courtesy of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

The post came with the caption:
Throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege of playing some great (fun) characters over the years, but none speak to my DNA more than this antihero known as the man in black, Teth Adam.
We don’t know why Johnson would feel so connected to the character, but so far he has been very public about how Black Adam feels like a passion project for him. Hopefully this will be a different character from his usual persona in films where he’s a friendly muscle man with quips.
With Shazam!: Fury of the Gods coming out this year, I’m really curious how DC is going to be treating Shazam’s arch enemy. Though Billy Batson embodies the fun-and-games spirit of a chile, Adam is a hardened leader, who has grew up from poverty. It’s like watching two genres of superhero clash with each other—whenever that crossover happens.
With Black Adam set for an October release, we should be expecting a new trailer soon. Maybe we’ll get them once reshoots are out of the way. I suspect we’ll get something around June.
Catch Black Adam when it hits theaters on Oct. 21.
