From Fake FBI Agent To DC Anti-Hero, How The Rock transitioned From John Hartley To Black Adam: “I was born to play…”

The Fast & Furious megastar Dwayne Johnson has owned varied characters throughout his career span. His last appearance was in the crime thriller Red Notice, starring alongside Gal Godot and Ryan Reynolds, as a sham FBI agent. He has always been an adaptive actor who molds himself depending on the attributes of the role. Dwayne’s exemplary talent is proof that he is treasured by Hollywood fans. All the praise goes to his enthralling looks and peerless action that viewers will soon get to see again in the upcoming superhero film based on DC Comics, Black Adam.

The Rock sculpted a new image of him by playing the super villain ‘Black Adam’

For the first time in his whole career, Dwayne has stepped into the world of comic characters. He is portraying the powerful yet corrupted character of the reborn Egyptian God, Black Adam. Fans would never have imagined The Rock playing a wicked character, looking back to his choices of movies. But, there is always a first to everything new! And fans are already swooning over the trailer that came out on June 8, 2022. 

This is not Dwayne Johnson’s first time playing a gray-shade character. He has played the crooked role of John Hartley in Red Notice, a fake FBI Agent who shakes hands with the world’s greatest art thief Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) to capture the most wanted criminal The Bishop (Gal Godot). But Black Adam is a complete transformation as viewers have definitely never seen him in this avatar before.
