Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson teased the release of his film Black Adam.The teaser is drawn by Jim Lee and BossLogic with the date ofDecember 22, 2021. Lee’s image has the character looking much more like Johnson than his regular comic depiction. The film has been in production, with Johnson attached for years and pre-dated Shazam.
Black Adam is a nemesis of Shazam whose film was a moderate hit for DC Comics and Warner Bros. A sequel is being worked on for that movie.
In the post, Johnson said:
The Man in Black ⚡️ Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero. Having cool superpowers, fighting for what’s right and always protecting the people. It all changed for me, when I was 10yrs old and was first introduced to the greatest superhero of all time – SUPERMAN. As a kid, Superman was the hero I always wanted to be. But, a few years into my fantasy, I realized that Superman was the hero, I could never be. I was too rebellious. Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority. Despite my troubles, I was still a good kid with a good heart – I just liked to do things my way. Now, years later as a man, with the same DNA I had as a kid – my superhero dreams have come true. I’m honored to join the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to become, BLACK ADAM. BLACK ADAM is blessed by magic with the powers equal to SUPERMAN, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people – but he does it his way. Truth and justice – the BLACK ADAM way. This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together. BLACK ADAM 12.22.21 ⚡️
It’s an almost given that Shazam and Black Adam will meet in a future film after Johnson’s debut film.
The CW has released a fifteen-second teaser for this year’s DCTV crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths. The 5-episode crossover begins December 8 and brings together the DC Comics television characters and more!
Reeling from the aftermath of Chloe seeing his devil face, Lucifer faces a new challenge: Eve, the original sinner herself, is back. Does she want revenge for when he tempted her out of Eden oh so many years ago… or something else entirely?
The Walking Dead returns to AMC February 10 and with it the communities will face a new enemy in the Whisperers. This new threat debuted in the comics in issue #130 and was a group of individuals who lived within the herds of walkers by wearing the skin of the dead. Led by the leaders Alpha and Beta, they were unlike anything that’s been dealt with before.
The show has teased this enemy for a bit of time and we’ve seen them in a few episodes already, though they haven’t been explained.
Today, AMC released a teaser of what we’ll be seeing in about a month’s time.
The CW‘s “Elseworlds” crossover between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl is over and throughout the entire event it hinted at an adaptation of a classic DC Comics event, Crisis on Infinite Earths. As Supergirl wrapped up, we now know next year’s Fall 2019 crossover is exactly that.
The event has been hinted at since the first season of The Flash where it was revealed The Flash disappeared during a “crisis.”
There’s a lot we still don’t know about this year’s Arrow, Supergirl, The FlashDCTV crossover event, “Elseworlds,” one thing readers are pretty clear on is what that title is a reference to. “Elseworlds” is the name of a popular line of comics from DC’s past that completely reimagined the worlds of DC’s greatest heroes. It’s a part of the company’s legacy, something that’s nodded to in a unique new image that’s promoting the three-night event.
Drawn by comic book artist Amy Reeder and designed to look like the cover of one of DC’s monthly comics, this illustration also includes the classic, all-lowercase “Elseworlds” logo. With LaMonica Garrett’s Monitor seen looming in the background, Reeder’s illustration portrays the heroes of the crossover—Green Arrow, the Flash, Supergirl, Superman and Batwoman—seemingly battling each other. Beneath them, Jeremy Davies’ maniacal-looking Dr. John Deegan can be seen looking up at them in delight, suggesting he might be the cause of the mayhem. Fans will also notice that the Flash in the image is actually Stephen Amell, while Green Arrow is Grant Gustin—something already teased through photos.
Reeder has drawn several highly regarded comics for DC, including the bestselling New 52 Batwoman series, which helped to define the Kate Kane version of the character.
Look for the “Elseworlds” crossover event to kick off on Sunday, December 9 at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. CST), then continue at the same time on December 10 and December 11 on The CW.
DC has revealed a first look at LaMonica Garrett who will play The Monitor in this year’s crossover between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl. The event is dubbed “Elseworlds.”
Marv Wolfman and George Pérez created The Monitor in the lead up to the classic Crisis on Infinite Earths and the character has appeared in multiple “Crisis” events since.
The characters is on of infinite power who has single-handedly kept the multiverse’s destruction at bay for millennia. We have no idea what role the character will play in the television event.
The story also debuts Ruby Rose as Batwoman, the first appearance of Gotham within the Arrowverse, the debut of Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, and Superman returns played by Tyler Hoechlin. There’s also Jeremy Davies as Dr. John Deegan, and John Wesley Shipp will return as The Flash. We’ve also seen The Flash and Green Arrow swap in a way.
The event kicks off on Sunday, December 9 at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. CST) on The CW and continues December 10th and 11th at the same time.
