Thanks to Dwayne Johnson’s enthusiasm, Kevin Smith is totally ready for The Rock’s upcoming film, Black Adam. In recent days, no one seemed as excited for the DC FanDome as Dwayne Johnson himself. The actor has been long biding to have this character unveiled to the world to witness. On an episode of Fatman Beyond, Marc Bernadin and Smith discussed how much the duo is looking forward to seeing Black Adam on the big screen.

While Bernadin revealed that he did not have a lot of backstory on Black Adam, but Johnson’s effusive delivery made him want to look more into it. This is also going to be a challenge for DC as the film nears its premiere date. This isn’t Superman or Wonder Woman or Batman – however, the studio does have one ace in their pocket – Dwayne Johnson. People have loved and admired The Rock for a long time and if he continues to harness his electrifying charisma, this can definitely go a long way. Here’s what the two hosts had to say:

“Lord knows The Rock has been waiting years to do this. He was so enthusiastic,” Smith began. “The hierarchy of the DC Universe is about to change. He is so deeply invested. He’s going to make me like Black Adam. A character I’ve never really cared about that much. His enthusiasm is infectious.” 

Dwayne Johnson had previously explained on Instagram, “Black Adam has been with me for over ten years now. And that gives you an idea of how passionate I am with this project, how passionate our Seven Bucks is about this project,” he told the fans. “Warner Brothers, New Line Cinema, DC, they have been so incredibly supportive over the years. This has been over 10 years [in the making]. In 2008, we started talking about this, so it has required patience by all of us as partners, and I am a much different man and an actor than I was 10 years ago.”

While attending the DC FanDome last year, he had stated that, “There are many variations and iterations of Black Adam that we have all fallen in love with over the years, and what I can promise you is a Black Adam that I feel in my heart is the right one to root our story in the beginning, this origin story,” Johnson told the virtual crowd. “This is a character that will possess all the qualities that we have loved, regardless of what variation of Black Adam you’ve loved.”
