The Rock is about to lay the smack down on the DC superhero Shazam.
After months of rumours, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is officially set to star in the new DC movie based on the heroic character Shazam. He previously hinted that he was in talks for the film, but the role he’s playing might surprise you. Instead of portraying the heroic Shazam, The Rock will instead take the role of his adversary Black Adam. In the comics, he was originally a straight up villain, but in more recent years, he’s more of an anti-hero, so it remains to be seen how good or bad he’ll be in the film.
There’s no word yet on who might play Shazam, but expect more details soon. The film is just one of many new movies being planned as part of DC’s new cinematic universe, which also includes Batman v Superman and the Justice League movie.
