The image shows Johnson standing with his Black Adam suit still on. However, he revealed that his suit wasn’t the typical padded suit that the fans see for other Superheroes. Well, considering his muscles and massive physique, he definitely did not need additional padding.

This is the first time Dwayne Johnson is playing the role of a superhero, who is actually an anti-hero. In fact, some believe his former WWE in-ring character was also an anti-hero, and might be similar to Black Adam.

The movie is set to be released globally within the next year. As of now, the crew is done shooting the scenes, and the rest of the post-production process will follow soon.

Moreover, Dwayne Johnson has already signed up for another Superhero movie

Johnson has signed up to be the voice of Krypto, Superman’s pet dog, in the movie – Super League of Pets. It’s going to be released around the same time at Black Adam.

Dwayne Johnson may consider a WWE return

The Rock has spoken about returning to WWE, but has confirmed nothing as of now. Initially, the idea was that he would return for a WrestleMania match against a top guy on the roster, but since then plans may have changed.

The Great One doesn’t want to return with a long-term commitment considering his schedule for his movies. However, he believes Vince McMahon may want him to return for at least two WrestleManias, and he isn’t quite on board with that yet.
