Shazam - Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Teases His Role In The DC Cinematic Universe


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has dropped a pretty big hint as to who he might be playing in the DC Cinematic Universe, and it sounds very much like we should expect to see him as Justice League member, Shazam. An official announcement is also said to be coming soon...

Well I would of guess he be black Adam but this is alright in my books I suppose

Crazay1605d ago

I was thinking the same thing. Black Adam makes more sense...especially with his lack of hair.

SilentNegotiator1605d ago

Yeah, he looks the part of Black Adam. But I don't think he's the best of actors.

krazykombatant1605d ago

can't be worse than Ryan Reinolds

SilentNegotiator1605d ago

The Green Lantern movie really sucked.

@ Headline

What exactly did he say in the video that exclusively says he's definitely Shazam and not Black Adam??

My guess is he'll definitely be Black Adam and maybe get some kind of an origin movie before we ever see Billy Batson.

To be honest the character needs a high star like this. I don't think the movie would do well if it were anyone else.

Plus I don't think he could pull off any other character.

He's a perfect fit for Black Adam.

As for Shazam, need someone who's more of a cheeseball hero. Patrick Warburton was suggested, but basically Shazam has to come off as a little kid's mind in the body of a superhero man.

Yeah there are better fit acting wise, but you have to remember Shazam doesn't have a big following at all. Putting in someone that isn't that well known won't draw in a crowd.

If you put in The Rock (at least at first) it will at least bring in attention. He is the second highest grossing star currently. Only person above him is Downy Jr.

(I agree, he'd make a better Black Adam though so either one I'm fine with as the situation is the same for both)

ironfist921604d ago

Well theres nothing to say you couldnt promote heavily on The Rock as Black Adam.

Trailers showing him about to destroy something or teasers in which they reveal Black Adam but not Shazam, itd work.
