HBO’s sports comedy Ballers starring Dwayne Johnson will end after its fifth season, which kicks off Sunday on HBO. Johnson announced the news in a thank-you post to fans on Instagram. “My heart 🖤 is full of gratitude to all of you for rockin’ with us every season,” Johnson wrote. Read his full post below. Created by showrunner Stephen Levinson, Ballers explores the glamorous and often cutthroat world of pro football through a group of past and present players striving to stay in the game. It stars Johnson as ex-superstar Spencer Strasmore, who has reinvented himself as a financial manager for today’s players. This season finds Spencer settling into retirement and reflecting on his past, when an offer that’s too good to refuse comes his way and sends him back into the lion’s den, this time as a team owner.

The New Line movie, Black Adam, based on the DC comics property will hit cinemas on Wednesday Dec. 22, 2021, five days after Fox’s Avatar sequel on Dec. 17. Pic is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who recently directed Johnson in Disney’s upcoming Jungle Cruise. Black Adam will open up against Sony’s Hotel Transylvania 4, Universal’s feature adaptation of the Broadway musical Wicked, and — Warner Bros. still has Sherlock Holmes 3 on that date. I have to imagine it will move. Though a villain, Johnson is positioning Black Adam as a good guy. Created by Otto Binder and C. C. Beck, Black Adam, an ancient Egyptian predecessor of Captain Marvel, was a recurring enemy to him and his family. He made his debut as a one-time villain in the December 1945 first issue of Fawcett Comics’ The Marvel Family.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is still on deck to play Black Adam and we have some new details regarding the character's solo movie. Johnsons was initially tapped to play the famed Shazam villain years ago as the big bad in that movie. However, things have changed and now, Johnson is getting his own solo movie before meeting up with Zachary Levi's Shazam at some point down the line. Though, when they do meet, it's not going to be as cut and dry as one of them is the hero and one of them is the villain. The wrestler-turned-actor has teased previously that they're going to treat Black Adam as more of an anti-hero. During a recent interview on behalf of his new movie Hobbs & Shaw, Dwayne Johnson took it a step further to reveal the character may even go so far as to become a hero. Here's what he had to say about it. "Black Adam, how he starts, he starts off as a villain. Then, he becomes an anti-hero. And then he might become a hero or we might not." To say the least, The Rock isn't known … [Read more...] about The Rock Unravels Black Adam Character Arc, Will He Stay a Villain?
Black Adam will begin production in July 2020. Dwayne Johnson delivered the long-awaited news on social media. We last heard about the project over the summer when it was revealed that shooting was to start late next year. However, it looks like they are starting a little earlier than initially expected, which is not a bad thing. While DC and Warner Bros. have yet to announce a release date, one can easily see a summer or early 2021 debut, depending on how smooth the production rolls. A Dwayne Johnson and Black Adam fan posted a sculpture he had made of the character, which caught the actor's eye. Johnson retweeted the image, thanking the fan for his great work and then said, "The project has been with me for over 10 years... Production begins this July." This is the news DC fans have been waiting a long time to hear. It's officially happening now, thanks to the success of Shazam! earlier this year. Black Adam producer Hiram Garcia recently spoke about the upcoming movie and what DC … [Read more...] about Black Adam Will Shoot in Summer 2020 Confirms The Rock
