Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has given an update that his portrayal as "Black Adam" in the DC Extended Universe, widely known and referred to as DCEU, is starting to come together.

Johnson, while speaking to MTV News at the world premiere of "Fate of the Furious," revealed that he recently had a "great discussion" with comic book and television show writer, Geoff Johns, at DC. Further noting that the company is now "world-building" the entire movie universe and fans will see that in the upcoming standalone films "Wonder Woman" and "Aquaman." The films are going to be released in cinemas on June 2, 2017 and Dec. 21, 2018, respectively.

He then continued to tease that more interesting surprises are being planned along the way. "So what we decided to do was to create a scenario where Black Adam has his stand-alone movie, and Captain Marvel, Shazam, has his stand-alone movie," the actor said. "We're building our world that way, and then we can come together at some point."

However, DC fans should probably not expect to see Johnson don the costume as "Black Adam" anytime soon. Screenrant said on its report that the actor, who is also a former wrestler, is very busy with his career at the moment. He is currently preoccupied with promoting the "Fate of the Furious" movie and will be followed up by his two other upcoming films for later this year: "Baywatch" and "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle."

"Black Adam" is not included in Warner Bros original slate for the DCEU, which is also another factor that fans should keep in mind, the report continued to speculate. The studio would most likely want to excite fans even more before it announces more important details about the movie.

No official word yet coming from Warner Bros on the time frame as to when "Black Adam" would hit cinemas.
