Dwayne Johnson often teases fans with hints of his ongoing talks with DC Comics to bring one of their characters to life. We are zeroing in on who exactly he will play, but Johnson makes it sound as though even he doesn’t know yet. According to USA Today, Johnson confirmed he will join a DC Comics adaptation but has not decided between hero Shazam and villain Black Adam. Whichever role he takes on, Johnson promised, “I am putting my heart and soul and my bones into this role.”
Warner Bros. was rumored to have tentatively scheduled a Shazam movie for 2016—shortly after the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice—so all may be revealed soon enough. More on Shazam and Black Adam after the break.
