Black Adam reunites Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson with the Young Rock star Uli Latufeku in a mystery role.
According to Deadline, Young Rock star Uli Latufeku has joined the cast of Black Adam in an undisclosed role, reuniting him with The Rock after playing a younger version of him in the NBC series Young Rock. Even though the role is still not announced yet, considering Latufeku played a young version of The Rock in the series, this role in the Black Adam film may be the same.
Latufeku joins the cast of the DC superhero film as the film’s principal photography is currently going on in Atlanta and Georgia. Even though many details of the film have been made public, most of the plot details are still being kept under wraps. It’s highly possible that the Young Rock star is playing the younger version of Teth-Adam, regardless Black Adam is shaping up to be a big blockbuster for DC.
DC’s Black Adam will introduce us to the anti-hero Black Adam, and the first superhero team in the DC universe, Justice Society of America. The film’s Justice Society of America will consist of multiple superheroes including Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Noah Centino as Atom Smasher. Sarah Shahi has also joined the film as the freedom fighter Adriana Tomaz, and it’s being theorized that James Cusati-Moyer will play her brother Amon. Meanwhile, Marwan Kenzari has also joined the film alongside Latufeku in an unknown role.
The film will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Jungle Cruise) and it will hit theaters on July 29, 2022.
