Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam continues to fill out its cast. Trinkets star Quintessa Swindell has nabbed the whirlwind role of DC hero Cyclone in the action-adventure thriller featuring the DC Comics anti-hero starring Johnson.
Johnson is playing the anti-hero, one of DC’s most popular characters, with the movie project introducing members of the Justice Society, historically DC’s precursor to the Justice League and having a multi-generational super-powered lineage. The team is being refashioned for the big-screen for obvious reasons. Already on board are Aldis Hodge as Hawkman and Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher. Additionally, Sarah Shahi has a supporting role which is rumored to be Isis, the love interest of Black Adam.
“Mama would be so proud. Beyond thankful to be joining the Black Adam family. ❤️,” they shared with the news on Instagram.
“Ready to rumble⚡️💪🏾 My pleasure to officially welcome, @q.uintessa to our BLACK ADAM cast. They’ll be taking on the role of CYCLONE. Can’t wait to work with them and WE READY to rumble in the DC jungle. #bringit #cyclone🌪 #JSA #blackadam⚡️,” Dwayne wrote on social media, welcoming them to the cast.
According to THR, “Cyclone is Maxine Hunkell, the granddaughter of the original Red Tornado, a female character introduced in 1940. The more well-known Red Tornado was created decades later and is an android with wind-related powers. Cyclone has wind and sound-generating powers.”
