Over a year ago there were stories about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson taking meetings with DC, and speculation ran wild with people trying to figure out who he would be playing if these meetings were a superhero movie. The first name that came up was Lobo, but then it went to Shazam and finally some information led to the character most likely being Black Adam. For a while there weren’t any new rumors or news stories concerning this, but on Sunday during the MTV Movie Awards an announcement was made.
Even though both Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart were co-hosting, there was a moment when Johnson came out wearing a black shirt with a yellow bolt down the middle. He proudly announced that Black Adam is Coming and then the show continued. The only bad thing is that the movie is scheduled to come out in about 3 years, so hopefully this means it’s getting pushed up or they are going to do be doing 3 years of marketing.
