“He was a perfect superhero to develop a franchise”, the fiasco of this film released last year does not pass for The Rock…
World famous actor and former wrestling star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson tried to push the boundaries of his film career with his latest superhero role. However, some things have not gone unnoticed for him, and he proclaims it out loud!
What’s next after this ad
Dwayne Johnson, who has emerged as one of Hollywood’s most beloved and recognizable personalities, has established himself in a multitude of film genres. Very well known especially for successful action films such as “Fast & Furious” And “Jumanji“, or comedy”Baywatch: Baywatch“, he recently decided to take up a new challenge, this time wearing a cape in the universe DC.
Black Adam and The Roch, the perfect match?
The announcement of Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam sparked immediate excitement among DC Comics fans. The character of Black Adam, who possesses superhuman powers and a complex history, has been a recurring character in the universe of Shazam.
Combining “The Rock” with the role of Black Adam seems like a perfect marriage between actor and character. Johnson, with his charismatic screen presence and his ability to embody powerful and imposing characters, is well placed to bring Black Adam to life, a antihero complex and often dark.
A bitter failure despite everything?
Although the marriage seemed idyllic between the character and the actor, the management of the film from a creative and commercial point of view was not really to the taste of The Rock who seems disappointed with the turn of events. However, the film made a more than respectable number of admissions, even surpassing Shazam with $393.3 million at the box office. The actor explains to us that the direction taken by the film did not please him ethically.
“There are people making decisions creatively and fiscally that you don’t necessarily agree with philosophically. I think Black Adam is a movie that fell into that.”
With Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Black Adam, the DC Cinematic Universe was about to enter a new era of renewal that could have spoken to a wide audience. In particular with possible bridges with the Justice League for example or Superman played by Henry Cavill. However, nothing is less certain now for the character played by The Rock after these statements. The start of a long-running soap opera?
