When asked if he felt there was enough freedom for him to make the character his own in the movies. Brosnan said that every movie requires a particular set of beats, and both Cinderella and Black Adam had that.

“Oh, very much so. It’s an ensemble piece, Black Adam. You have Dwayne, who’s at the pinnacle of his fame and fortune and success and popularity. He is magnificent as Black Adam. We are the Justice Society and there’s four of us, so we became a strong quartet of actors.”

“The writing was very good. There was just enough beats. You just want three good beats. If you have three good scenes to hang your hat and your heart on, then you can make something of your days. For me, Black Adam had that, and Cinderella had it, in its own specific way.” H/t Collider.

Dwayne Johnson signed two superhero movies in a year

Johnson has played several roles in Hollywood before, but Black Adam is the first time he played the role of a superhero. In fact, the character he plays in Black Adam can be compared to the anti-hero character he played in WWE.

The trailer of the movie is out, and ‘The Rock’ even shared his daughter’s reaction to watching Black Adam’s trailer for the first time!

The film is expected to be released in the United States in July 2022.
