Dwayne Johnson to Play Black Adam in 'Shazam'!

By InCinemas  /  04 Sep 2014 (Thursday)

After months (alright, weeks) of speculation, it's official - The Rock, Dwayne Johnson will play Black Adam in DC comics live action movie adaptation, Shazam!

Johnson released the news through a tweet that he'll be playing Shazam's enemy in the movie, with the hashtag #TheAntiHero.

It will be interesting to see how Johnson adds his own super-powered side to the character and perhaps a start to future DC line of movies!

The movie is tentatively scheduled to be released in 2016, which is right after Zack Synder's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice!

What do you guys think? Is Johnson the ideal actor for this role?
