Black Adam Producer Says Dwayne Johnson Anti-Hero Has a ‘Moral Compass’
Speaking with Comicbook, Black 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.”
