Black Adam Producer Says Dwayne Johnson Anti-Hero Has a ‘Moral Compass’

Despite the fact that we might have to wait a few years to watch him lock horns with Shazam!, the first Black Adam standalone film will likely debut in the next couple of years.

Speaking with ComicbookBlack Adam star Dwayne Johnson reiterated that his character will start off as a villain, but then he will evolve into an “anti-hero.”

“Black Adam, how he starts, he starts off as a villain,” Johnson said. “Then, he becomes an anti-hero. And then he might become a hero or we might not.”

Black Adam producer Hiram Garcia highlighted how they’re taking the anti-hero approach for the film, saying:

“He was created as a villain and through the love of the fans and through some great writers and storytellers, he evolved into an antihero. The antihero is a character that we always loved and that we responded to. But we understand that there’s been many aspects to Black Adam through him. But ultimately this is a guy who he does have a moral compass as skewed as it may be. And ultimately he is a guy that everything has always been driven by his family and what happens to them. And he is never opposed to unleashing hell when you cross him. So I think when you add in those elements of that DNA, those are things we’re very aware of.”
