Rock's unusual red carpet choice for Black Adam premiere

Dwayne Johnson at the premiere of the film "Black Adam" in London attracted attention with a striking fashion edition, and for this occasion, he chose a silk purple suit. The stars of DC Comics' latest blockbuster "Black Adam" hit the red carpet for the film's premiere in London's Leicester Square on Tuesday night.

Dwayne Johnson - who plays the title role - was grinning from ear to ear as he wore a daring purple tux and joined co-stars Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Shahi, and Noah Centine. The purple suit was made of silk, and The Rock was shirtless underneath, emphasizing his chiseled muscles.

Brosnan picked a slightly more formal look and wore a suit in different shades of blue, while "To All The Boys I Loved Before" star Noah chose a slightly more relaxed look.

"Black Adam" follows an anti-hero who is released into modern times after 5,000 years of captivity. He is discovered by the Justice Society of America, who try to show him how to use his powers for good, not evil. During the premiere, the actor said he wanted to "usher in a new era" for DC.

"We made a great movie; we knew that was the most important thing," he told PA. "We wanted to create a movie that was appealing globally to people and we wanted to kind of turn the superhero genre on its head a little bit with creating an anti-hero with a lot of edge.

"We also want it to usher in a new era." The superhero movie was delayed after Dwayne caught Coronavirus in 2020. "COVID threw a curveball in a big way and readjusted everyone's schedule, but I think the easiest way to look at it is it simply pushed the entire industry's schedule a few months.

"We're planning to pick back up with Black Adam some time first quarter next year and hoping to lock that all down soon. And I've gone through some doozies in the past. I've gotten knocked about and had my ass kicked in the past with some challenges, but testing positive for COVID-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries or being evicted or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times." "The reason why I feel this is different is because my number one priority is always to protect my family and protect my children- my loved ones."
