Black Adam: Through a shared post on Twitter this past Friday (3), Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed an unprecedented image of his character in Black Adam, with the villain displaying a sinister eye and one of the main special abilities.
According to the actor’s publication, Teth-Adam, the former champion of Mage Shazam, arrives to change the “hierarchy of power in the DC Universe”. Black Adam, as in the comics, is expected to be a violent anti-hero who “kills bad people” using his shared powers of Shu, Heru, Amon, Zehuti, Aten, and Mehen — extradimensional beings known as ancient gods on Earth — to subdue every threat that comes your way, including the good guys of the Justice Society of America.
In the image, The Rock, who will star in DC’s new feature film, shows that Black Adam will be no joke and that he will maintain his traditional furious and vengeful personality, being endowed with his traditional twinkling yellow eyes that shoot rays at the targets.

But I do.” ~ #BlackAdam
