He practically willed this film into existence. But Dwayne Johnson may be taking the role of Black Adam a little too much to heart. If you were walking through Times Square on Sunday — and honestly, I’m not sure how many people were — you would have been greeted with the booming sound of Johnson intoning “the balance of power in the DC Universe is about to change…” and every electronic billboard shifting to the Black Adam logo.

BLACK ADAM is coming July 29, 2022.
