Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Kevin Hart's friendship is one for the ages. Their onscreen rapport translates from their offscreen banter and we can't get enough of this unconventional duo, whose comedy chops are off the rocks! Currently, The Rock and Kevin are busy promoting their upcoming release, Jumanji: The Next Level. They were recently in Mexico for the global press tour of Jumanji: The Next Level as it marked the first work outing for Hart, post his deadly car crash in September in Mulholland Highway, Los Angeles.

Recently, Dwayne confirmed the news that there was finally a release date for Black Adam, which will see the former wrestler as a DC superhero. However, Kevin knows for a fact that Johnson will star in the Jaume Collet-Serra directorial on one condition only! While speaking to Entertainment Tonight about how his close friend is finally getting to play Black Adam, the 40-year-old actor quipped, "We've already discussed it. We talked about it earlier, so we’re finding that out. No matter what, he’s not going to do it and not put me in it. How selfish would that be?"

In response, Johnson stated to ET, "We’ve got to find the part for Kevin in Black Adam within the DC Universe."



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 Huge thank you to my friends, @jimlee and @bosslogic for this first time ever bad ass collaboration.
