Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to Play Black AdamSeptember 3, 2014
Dwayne Johnson took to Twitter today and finally solidified the character that he will be playing in DC‘s eventual Shazam movie. The Rock will be taking up the mantle of Black Adam, arch-enemy of Shazam. Johnson has gone back and forth for nearly a month, teasing fans with the possibility of either playing Shazam or Black Adam, so it’s nice to finally have an answer. No date has been announced for the Shazam movie, though it is rumored to be coming in 2016, the same year as Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
