Although some will consider that Black Adam and Superman share some characteristics that may confuse them, Dwayne Johnson reveals what he considers to be the main differences between the superhero he is about to bring to life and Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel.
After much waiting, The Rock is ready to debut in the DCEU as a new superhero, so the former WWE Superstar has had a chance to get acquainted with his character.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, while promoting Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise’, Johnson said that while Black Adam and Superman share some of the same abilities, for him, the DCEU antihero has an advantage: his handling of the magic.
“Black Adam has all the powers of Superman, but the difference is that he is blessed with magic. And also, according to a code of ethics in the world of superheroes, they don’t kill bad guys, but Black Adam does ”.
Additionally, Johnson made sure to highlight the moral aspects of his character and that of Cavill, as we know the “values” that the Man of Steel tries to uphold on the battlefield, while Black Adam has no problem doing what. be necessary. Hence his “quality” as an antihero.
‘Black Adam’ will also introduce us to the arrival of the Justice Society of America, made up of Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell) and Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo).
Understanding that both Black Adam and Shazam are DCEU characters who are very “young”, we do not believe that very soon we will see Johnson versus Superman, especially if we remember that Warner and DC are currently defining the future of the Man of Steel, and the possible fact of changing the protagonist of this story.
