Dwayne Johnson and Black Adam

Earlier this week, The Shallows director Jaume Collet-Serra was announced for DC's Black Adam. The movie's star, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, has now reacted enthusiastically to the news.

"Cool news announcing Spanish thriller filmmaker, Jaume Collet-Serra as my director for DC’s BLACK ADAM,"  Johnson said on Instagram. "Jaume and I have worked together for the last two years making, DISNEY’S JUNGLE CRUISE - and I’ve been very impressed with his passion, work ethic, style, vision, tone and quality. He’s hungry to break new ground with BLACK ADAM and give the fans something very cool and special. I raise a double tequila welcoming Jaume and can’t wait to bring to life the world’s anti-hero in black."

Little is known about the Black Adam movie, which has had a long and complex development history, at this time. There was an indirect reference to the character in David F. Sandberg's Shazam!, which released earlier this year, indicating he was the Council of Wizards' former champion before betraying those who had granted him his power. Black Adam was created by Otto Binder and C. C. Beck in 1945. The release date of Black Adam is yet to be announced.
