Dwayne Johnson Confirms He Will Be Either Shazam or Black Adam.
Dwayne Johnson has been teasing us for a while that he will be in a DC movie. You can read our last article about the matter here. But now, Johnson has confirmed something he hasn't been so lenient to reveal in the past. With possibilities of his character ranging from Green Lantern to Martian Manhunter to Lobo, he has officially narrowed it down to two possibilities for us. Johnson said this in an interview:
"It’s the story of Shazam, but I can not say now if (my role) is Shazam or Black Adam."
In my last article about this, I talked about how it would be difficult if he was Shazam, since he would also be sharing the screen with the character's other persona, Billy Baxon who would have to be a different actor (a Bruce Banner/Hulk situation). I personally think he will be Black Adam, for the exact reasons I stated earlier. There would be a lot of issues if he was Shazam, and Black Adam could be DC's Loki, meaning he can he a reusable villain for Shazam and a contender for a villain for the Justice League. I would still be excited if say tomorrow it was announced that the Rock was Shazam, but my personal hope is that he is Black Adam. The only problem is that then they have to get an actor of similar size for Shazam, but you would've had that same issue with a Black Adam is he was Shazam.
What do you think? Will the Rock be Shazam or Black Adam? Which would you prefer? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
