Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson proves once again just how intimidating he is, with a new tease for the upcoming supervillain film Black Adam. The actor, who will be portraying the villain when Black Adam eventually comes out, has shared a video on Instagram with a few words on the journey the team has taken so far to get the script and pre-production finished for the title, but not without scaring us (and both Marvel and DC) just a little with a Johnny Cash verse.
Black Adam will follow the origin story of one of DC's biggest villains, and rival to Shazam, Black Adam. Although he's a DC villain and will be appearing as part of that universe, The Rock felt comfortable enough to threaten both DC heroes and Marvel heroes in this one Insta post.
He says, after showing the cover of Black Adam and telling us that shooting begins in about three weeks, that he's "putting DC and Marvel on notice".
"I want to show you the opening page of my script that I look at, every time I open this and memorise this - and I've known these words for years and years and years now. But it gives you guys an example of who Black Adam is, and who Black Adam is to the world of the DC universe. But also I think who Black Adam is to the world of superhero universes, period. And that is the DC universe but that also includes the Marvel superhero universe too.
"Now look, I'm not saying that there is going to be a mash-up. I'm not saying that. But what I am saying is that it doesn't matter to me, and it doesn't matter to Black Adam - you put them all on notice," Johnson chuckles. "Whether they're DC universe or part of the Marvel universe, they all get put on notice now."
The actor then reads out the last verse of Johny Cash's Man in Black which goes something like this: "Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day, And tell the world that everything's OK, But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back, 'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black."
And as The Rock says it, you can't forget that the actor really is gosh-darn good at what he does. That voice is foreboding and puts us on edge as he sounds like he knows the terror to come with the eventual release of Black Adam. Well, Dwayne, we can't wait to see what you do to the DC universe and maybe, if we're lucky, the Marvel universe too.
