‘Black Adam’: Could The Rock save the DCEU with this new movie?
Black Adam is a project that fans of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have been waiting to see for years. Seriously, ever since the DCEU has been announced, fans have been dying to see Black Adam in action. Johnson was probably one of the earliest castings in the DCEU since, like, 2014? It was years ago. But, well, now the film is finally underway and we can’t wait to see what’ll happen.
Black Adam has been in the works for years, but only recently gained traction within DC Films. Originally, it looked like the villain/antihero was going to go up against Shazam when the time came for that movie. After that, Black Adam became its own solo film with The Rock getting the starring credit as the title character. Given the issues the DCEU had with its film, could the project save it?
It’s possible. Let’s be real here, folks. The Rock could do a movie about the wonders of dental hygiene and it would still be the best-selling movie in the world. He’s an internationally beloved figure. People have been dying to see him in a superhero role for years. How excited are people for the new movie with the Rock? Let’s take a look at how Twitter is feeling like the Rock can save the DCEU.
“Mr. Johnson, how much padding do you think you’ll need for the suit?”

No padding is needed for that supersuit.
The Rock’s Black Adam suit has cuneiform all over as the texture. It feels ancient.
Levi’s new SHAZAM suit has a similar textured look but more modernized, Billy’s idea of a superhero.
Both have strong familiar designs, both unique, and both feel powerful. pic.twitter.com/jeLcTY2K3K

It’s definitely a cool comparison between the two suits.

Did anyone think that?
Like we thought that the Rock would need a padded suit for his own movie. Please.
