Dwayne Johnson is considered the key to the success of the project, while Black Adam is also considered a breakthrough role for Hollywood’s highest-paid actor.
“I’m passionate about every project I’m in, but Black Adam is really special. To me, an anti-hero is someone who straddles the line between good and evil. In the world of superheroes, you often think there is only black and white, but in the middle of that line is a space with many different colors. We created the character Black Adam in that space and look forward to the whole world enjoying the movie,” the actor shared.
