Seen recently in the series “Young Rock”, inspired by the youth of Dwayne Johnson, Uli Latukefu joins the cast of the DC film “Black Adam”. To embody a rejuvenated version of the character?
Has Dwayne Johnson found the digital rejuvenation parade for flashback scenes in his films? According to Deadline, Uli Latukefu has joined the cast of Black Adam. But the actor is none other than the one who embodies the wrestler during his college years in the Young Rock series, inspired by his youth and launched on February 16 in the United States.
If his role has not been specified, it would therefore not be surprising that the actor, also seen in Alien Covenant, replaces Dwayne Johnson in scenes devoted to the youth of his character. And in particular those which will take place in Ancient Egypt, where the future Black Adam received his powers to protect the Earth, before turning to Evil.
All of this remains to be confirmed, of course, as filming began a short time ago, under the direction of Jaume Collet-Serra, who directed Dwayne Johnson in Jungle Cruise, due in our theaters on July 28.
Black Adam will be released a year later, July 27, 2022. And the cast will include Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, while Pierce Brosnan will play the famous Doctor. Fate, a powerful wizard and member of the Justice Society of America, who we should see in the feature film.
