"Black Adam" will mark Brosnan’s first step into the world of comic book franchises. His character Kent Nelson (Dr. Fate) will don a magical helmet and learn powerful sorcery skills in the movie.

While Johnson will portray the title role of Black Adam, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Quintessa Swindell will portray Hawkman, Atom Smasher, and Cyclone, respectively.

Johnson shared a video Sunday featuring the cover page of the "Black Adam" script.

"Well, I’d love to wear a rainbow every day. And tell the world that everything’s okay. But I’ll try to carry off a little darkness on my back," he captioned. "Till things are brighter...I’m the Man In Black."

Besides the superhero movie, the actor is actively promoting the "Young Rock" sitcom, which is based on his life. The 48-year-old actor shared a still from the sitcom and noted how his mother went through difficult times including her cancer, divorce and a suicide attempt.

"Maaaan my mom has been thru it all...divorce, cancer, hit head on by a drunk driver, and even a suicide attempt back when I was 15," he captioned. "She survived it ALL and ironically, though not surprisingly - my mom is THE kindest, most caring and JOYFUL human being I have ever met."

"And still brings her ukulele everywhere we go. Tonight’s episode of YOUNG ROCK is for ALL THE MOMS," he concluded. "8PM on @NBC."

“Black Adam” is slated to release on Dec. 22, 2021, while “Young Rock” new episode comes out every Tuesday on NBC.
