Last month, Johnson revealed on Instagram that Black Adam will be released on July 29, 2022, nearly one year after the film was originally supposed to premiere.

While the plot of the film is under wraps, Johnson's Black Adam is the anti-hero of the film. The character first appeared in DC comics in the 1940s, starting off as a power-hungry villain until he slowly became an anti-hero by the 2000s.

The actor also shared a video on Instagram last month in which he revealed what he eats for breakfast to prepare for the role.

The breakfast includes whole eggs and egg whites, beef tenderloin, oatmeal and blueberries, as well as gluten-free Ezekiel English muffins and Smart Balance butter, with some Stevia and cinnamon added for extra sweetness. 

Johnson said that the role requires "strength, conditioning, character and story study," but also a well-planned diet, which he described as "the most important thing."
