Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been teasing his live-action superhero debut for years, and later this year, he will make his debut in Black Adam, a DC Comics film that has been in development for over a decade.
A lot of people are looking forward to watching Johnson live up to the title character, and with the film’s premiere coming up in less than a month, it appears that he and the rest of the cast will be throwing a big party to celebrate.
Johnson announced the tour on Tuesday night through Twitter, with stops in Mexico City, New York City, Toronto, Atlanta, Miami, London, Madrid, and Los Angeles between October 3 and October 20.
Black Adam, an antihero from the ancient city of Kahndaq, is released into the present day after spending nearly five thousand years in jail.
Adam’s brutal methods and brand of justice draw the notice of the Justice Society of America, who try to put an end to his rampage, teach him to be a hero instead of a villain, and compel the two to work together to defeat an enemy greater than either of them alone.
Aldis Hodge The Invisible Man, Underground, Quintessa Swindell (Trinkets, Euphoria), Noah Centineo To All the Boys I Love Before, Charlie’s Angels, Pierce Brosnan (GoldenEye, Mamma Mia! ), and Bodhi Sabongui currently unknown roles are set to star in Black Adam, directed by Jungle Cruise’s Jaume Collett-Serra.
When questioned by ComicBook.com if he plans to continue in this capacity for the foreseeable future, Johnson responded, “I am 100% committed to not only Black Adam but then growing the Black Adam universe, the DC universe.” “Since the moment the gun goes off, I have been an eternal optimist.
Therefore, I and everyone else up here consider the entire cosmos to be an inside job. I, along with the rest of the team, will put in a lot of extra effort to make sure the mythology is respected while also satisfying the expectations of the audience.
I hear the crowd, as do we all, and I understand every word they utter. Neither do I, nor do the other producers or the director Hiram Garcia, Beau Flynn, or Jaume Collet-Serra.
Black Adam is the anchoring jet fuel now that will push and press this world out, and hopefully, this is just the beginning of a very long storytelling path.”
On October 21, 2018, Black Adam will premiere in theaters only.
