DC Comics ‘Kingdom Come’ Is Dwayne Johnson’s “Dream Project,” Says Producer

DC Comics

‘Red Notice’ actor Dwayne Johnson is set to appear in two Warner Media projects including ‘Black Adam’ as the title character and ‘DC League of Super-Pets’ as Krypto the Superdog.
With two on the slate, SyFy reports that his longtime producer Hiram Garcia, who also serves as President of Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions, revealed that the DC Comics event ‘Kingdom Come’ is his “dream project.”
“Look, I think the dream project that’s something we’ve always spoken about at Seven Bucks, we would love to make someday, which is a tougher ambition due to, obviously, IP and rules and so forth, but always been obsessed with Kingdom Come, the Mark Waid/Alex Ross joint that those guys did,” Garcia told Collider. “I think that storyline was always so compelling. We’ve always envisioned it as kind of an epic, multi-film saga.”
He continued, “I think that’s something we’ve always dreamed of being able to do. If there was ever a dream project, and not trying to start a fire where it’s like we’re gunning after that, because it’s just pie in the sky, you’d love to be able to tell the story, and I always admired that story of the juxtaposition of old-school heroes versus new-school heroes and how they clash and a world so divided in terms of how they view what is justice now and what was it and what should it be. It’s always just always something very compelling in the big, cataclysmic mash-up of old versus new. That’s something that, look, in a perfect world, we could do it, would love to do it.”
‘Kingdom Come’ is a four-part DC Comics Elseworld miniseries written by Mark Waid and featuring award-winning art from Alex Ross. It follows a divide between the Justice League when Superman decides to open a prison where villains are arrested with impunity. This puts him at odds with Batman who starts a resistance. The events are observed by the Specter and Pastor Norman McCay who was given apocalyptic visions by Sandman. It was originally released in 1993.
