The super(anti)hero event movie of the year is exploding into cinemas in October, and Total Film has gone eyeball-to-eyeball with Dwayne Johnson to get the lowdown on how he wrestled the ultimate comic-book badass to the screen.
In a cover feature the size of Johnson’s biceps, he tells TF how he’s long dreamed of playing Black Adam, and how the supersized action-adventure will disrupt the DC Universe and introduce viewers to the Justice Society of America – the oldest comic super-team.
Total Film also talks to director Jaume Collet-Serra, producers Hiram Garcia and Beau Flynn, and co-stars Aldis Hodge, Pierce Brosnan, Quintessa Swindell and Noah Centineo in order to examine Black Adam and his unique form of justice from every angle.
