Will The Real Black Adam Please Stand Up… Please Stand Up

Jamie Foxx’s new TV series on Fox is called Beat Shazam. This is not a reference to the DC Comic character, but rather the telephone app that listens and identifies music for you. The game is a lot like the old Name That Tune show that ran on and off from when it started as a radio program in 1952 to it’s final television episode in 1985. Foxx hosts the new series that is currently #1 in the ratings and airs on Thursday at 8 PM.

Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson and Foxx are friends and the actor who will be playing Black Adam in the future took to instagram to congratulate his friend on the success.

Big congrats to my brotha @iamjamiefoxx and his #1 show on @foxtv#BeatShazam. Tune in TONIGHT @ 8pm to see why it’s #1. People are having a blast! So will you.
For the record, I’ll be beating Shazam’s ass tonight when I watch the show, cause I’m a G who knows my music. (and as the man who will one day play Black Adam, this ain’t the only time I’ll be beating Shazam’s ass).

Black Adam

Johnson seems to be quite confident in both his musical knowledge and his ass kicking skills, at least when it comes to Shazam. I wonder if anyone has told him that Shazam is the old sorcerer and Captain Marvel is the guy his probably fighting…
