Dwayne Johnson and Aldis Hodge, co-stars of the upcoming DC Extended Universe film Black Adam, turned up for its Comic Con preview on Saturday. Johnson has been interested in playing this role since as early as 2007, but it went in and out of development, and he was briefly discussed to play Black Adam as the villain of the 2019 film Shazam!

Now, Johnson is finally taking on the role in his own solo film which is a spinoff of Shazam!, and DC is also releasing a sequel to the original, Shazam! Fury Of The Gods, soon after Johnson’s film premieres. Hodge will be playing the character of Hawkman, who leads the team Justice Society of America in the comics which included the Flash, Green Lantern, and more obscure heroes like Doctor Fate.

Black Adam will premiere in theaters on October 21, 2022.
