The Rock seemed flat as Black Adam to some fans

Starring Dwayne Johnson, a professional wrestler-and-Hollywood superstar as the powerful anti-hero seemed a little bland for the audience to digest on screen. Earlier Johnson was supposed to enter the DC universe as Black Adam in 2019’s Shazam. But his role, however, was scrapped when the spinoff for his character was greenlit for a solo Black Adam movie.
