Excited to expand the DC Universe w/ writer Adam Sztykiel (co-wrote @rampagethemovie) and bring this complex & gritty anti-hero to the big screen. This character’s in my bones. Ruthless code. #Kneel #BlackAdam⚡️https://t.co/mGUKIQAcSP

This tweet serves on the confirmation on the report from The Tracking Board this past Halloween.
I have been excited about the film since first hearing the news of Johnson being cast as Black Adam. I don’t think there is someone more perfect to take on this role. We will finally get to see Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson portray a well known superhero.
While Johnson is no stranger to action flicks, Sztykiel has mostly written comedies up to this point in his career, with films such as Due Date, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul under his belt. Sztykiel will also be writing the sequel to Were the Millers.
Black Adam was created by Otto Binder and C.C. Beck and made his first appearance in December 1945. While he is known as a supervillain, he does at times take on the role of an anti-hero.
