Watch Johnson serenade Colbert in the video above.
While Dwayne Johnson's role as the DC villain named Black Adam has been known for some time, details on when the character will make his big screen debut have been kept under wraps for the time being. "Just got word that will shock the world - Land of the free. home of the courageous DAMN PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!" was the social media message The Rock posted foreshadowing then-President Barack Obama's announcement. When I tweeted that, I was told that the president was just about to walk on at his press conference in 30 seconds. "Great question, and the answer is no", Johnson responded. After Johnson sent out the message to his Twitter followers, he was informed that President Obama's announcement was postponed an hour.
In regards to his rumored Presidential run, Rock said he plans on running in either 2024 or 2028. I really do think that Dwayne Johnson was the flawless actor to cast for the role and am excited to see the him step into the superhero world.
Colbert and Johnson also discussed the ongoing rumours that the actor might go into politics.
Johnson went on to explain how the idea began when the Washington Post wrote a story, suggesting if he ran for POTUS, he would stand a good chance of winning.
"So when that started picking up, of course, when I'm asked [I say] of course I have incredible respect for our American people and our country". "I will say, I never looked a man directly in the eye while I sang that". And of course, I would.
"But at the same time, Stephen, I mean look, I'm not delusional at all", Johnson specifies. As for Colbert, you can find him on TV every weeknight.
At the end of the chat, Colbert asked Johnson about his Samoan heritage and his singing skills in animated Disney film Moana.
