2. Black Adam


Black Adam is a character which The Rock has expressed his desire to play numerous times in the past. Originally a slave, Adam gained his powers when his young nephew Aman was imbued with them by a mysterious wizard and saved his uncle by sharing his newfound abilities between them. While Aman wanted to use his new powers to help his people and cure his former slavemasters of their evil souls, Adam only sought vengeance against those who had enslaved them. To this end, when Aman called down the lightning, Adam seemingly killed Aman so that he himself was the sole recipient of the power. It’s a complex and dark role, and one which would give Johnson a really meaty part to sink his teeth into. With a new Justice League animated movie replacing Aquaman with Shazam (Black Adam’s nemesis), could we see this villain taking on the team in a future live-action adaptation?
