It is therefore on the cover that Dwayne aka Black Adam assesses the reader with his eyes, enough to introduce this colorful character in the world of superheroes and super-villains. The words of Dwayne Johnson and the producer of the film Hiram garcia in the magazine present the upcoming feature film as “really great” : “Okay, the movie is at a point where there are no effects finalized yet. It’s so fresh after the shoot. But every time a movie is this entertaining and good in such a raw form. , that makes us very confident. [nous sommes] very excited about the progress of the film. Jaume did such a good job. The movie is great. It’s funny. DJ was born to play Black Adam, I have to tell you that if there is someone who is perfect for this role, it is him. And then see it with the rest of the JSA and all these characters, and Pierce [Brosnan], Aldis [Hodge], Quintessa [Swindell] and Noah [Centineo], it’s a moment like “Pinch me I’m dreaming”. It was one of the funniest movies we’ve ever made, and it was also super cool to do something on this scale and with a character that’s going to have such an impact on the DC Universe. It’s really awesome, and I think you’ll love it. “
Enough to make fans wait before the French release of the film adaptation of the film, dated for July 27, 2022.
