Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who was recently revealed to play the anti-hero Black Adam in WB and DC’s upcoming feature pic “Shazam,” seems to be prepping up for his superhero role, asking one of his superhero friends, Wolverine, Hugh Jackman what would he do in a certain same predicament. Read on for further details.
It seems that DC’s Black Adam and Marvel’s Wolverine are gym buddies. In preparation of his role as villain/anti-hero, Black Adam, Dwayne Johnson posted a video on Instagram, asking what Hugh “Wolverine” Jackman would do in a similar situation — gym day on a rainy day during the hurricane season in South Florida.
Johnson answered his own question with a text included in the video: “Wolverine would go.. #HurricaneSeason #ThunderAndLightning #FindAWay #SomewhereBlackAdamIsSmiling.”
Adorably, Jackman replies by posting his own video in Instagram saying, “Hey DJ, it’s not hurricane season, but it’s 5:45 [AM]. We’re at the gym. Focus!” Jackman revealed earlier that he got his workout program for “The Wolverine” pic from Johnson.
Johnson is set to play DC Comics Character, villain/anti-hero, Black Adam in the upcoming “Shazam” pic, revealing the announcement via Twitter. Black Adam is a villain turned anti-hero who served with JSA (Justice Society of America), who, at first played antagonist to Shazam. Black Adam is an ancient force, born to the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses II. Supposedly, he was to be chosen as the first Shazam, until the intervention of the half-demonic Blaze. When uttering the words “SHAZAM!,” Adam is empowered by Ancient Egyptian deities.
Shazam, earlier known as Captain Marvel, is a superhero which originated from DC Comics. When young Billy Batson utters the word “SHAZAM!,” he is immediately struck by a magical thunderbolt, transforming him into a superpowered adult hero Captain Marvel/Shazam, the Champion of Magic empowered by the powers of six elders.
Hiram Garcia will be producing the “Shazam” pic from a script written by Darren Lemke who has worked with films such as “Jack the Giant Slayer” and “Shrek Forever After.”
