The Rock just recently showed off the work that he has put into training for his lead role in the movie Black Adam and teased things are ‘about to change’ within the DC universe. That is what it has been revealed until now.
The action star and WWE wrestler posted some pictures lately to Instagram of himself in the gym hitting weights which is heavier than most people. He also wrote that DC’s hierarchy of power will also change and did a play on Superman’s old ‘Truth Justice and the American way’ motto.
He also posted a follow-up saying ‘Same Game, but different levels. Same Hell, different devils. Training for the new Black Adam, where the devils may change, but hell stays the same.’ He also, later on, confirmed that Black Adam begins the shooting this summer itself.
We know that The Rock is an admitted Superman fan. He and Man Of Steel actor Henry Cavill also know each other and they also share the same management. This seems like they will be doing great work together.
But the Rock will be taking little spots at Superman now and then. He boasts Black Adam and Superman have the very same powers frequently and also says Adam will be doing what is right but he won’t toe the line. He does things in his way which is a good thing.
He wants to see the two fight it out, a battle was predicted for the upcoming Black Adam 2 and it was possibly preceded by a cameo in the movie Shazam 2.
On the other hand, Cavill is holding onto the cape for now and lobbying to tell more of Superman stories. He also could get recast, however, if Warner Bros. and J.J. Abrams move on without him.
