Some fans were under the impression that it will never see the light of day after encountering multiple production setbacks over the last couple of years, but cameras finally began rolling for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's solo Black Adam film earlier this year. It's pretty safe to say at this point that nothing can stop Teth Adam's much-awaited arrival to the DC Extended Universe.
For most of his storied comic book run, the character has always been portrayed as the villain but it's looking quite evident that Warner Bros. will be capitalizing on The Rock's immense popularity and eventually turn him into the hero.

In his latest post, Johnson claims that Black Adam will differ from other DC superheroes over one thing — his character won't have a "no killing" rule or as he says, a code of justice. Check out the post here:
The idea of Johnson being presented as a villain feels quite odd because it's almost impossible to hate the guy. Still, it'll be interesting to see what he brings to the table as a bonafide bad guy and I'm just excited to see him go toe-to-toe with his archnemesis Shazam. Hopefully, the film will usher in a brand new era in the DCEU which has been in limbo for years. I mean, having such star power in The Rock is already a plus.
