Dwayne Johnson appears in the Total Film magazine hitting shelves Friday 13 February. In it, he talks about his coming film San Andreas which opens on May 29, 2015. Johnson also talks about his role in the coming Shazam film and it’s connection the DC universe via GamesRadar:
“It was all agreed that the worlds are all interconnected… One day you will see Black Adam go at it with Superman or Batman or any of the DC characters. But that said, there’s a great independence to Black Adam from the DC world, allowing us to inject, not only viciousness, but also winking humour.”
And about the character Black Adam:
“I think Black Adam is going to grow into becoming an anti-hero. It’s all written within the spirit of respecting and paying homage to the comics. As we know, Black Adam started out as a slave. When he’s given the powers, he utilized them. Then in the wake of his powers, tragedy strikes, which turns his sentiment and tone in terms of psychology.”
Shazam is scheduled for release on April 5, 2019.
