Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?

Today, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed in his Instagram that he will be taking the lead role in DC’s upcoming movie “Black Adam”. Set to be released on the 22nd of December next year—that is 2021, not 2020—it is crazy that Johnson has already started equipping himself for the role 24 months early!

Johnson had already talked about wanting the role so bad ever since 2019, but it was only today that it is finally confirmed that the muscle god himself will be playing Black Adam in the movie that carries the similar name. The character has been close to his heart since childhood as whilst he loved Superman, The Rock identified more with the rebellious but equally powerful Black Adam.

He followed this up with a series of gym pics showing off his arm day routines! Revealed that a “new era” is about to begin, Johnson teased that “the hierarchy of power in the #DCUniverse in about to change.”

Even though we have to wait literally almost another 2 years before finally able to see The Rock in action, we are thrilled to see what could DC offer in this very anticipated movie!

Literally, as soon as this hit the Internet, we got really excited!
