Dwayne Johnson Can't Choose: Shazam or Black Adam for DC Comics
Before Comic-Con, action star Dwayne Johnson was teasing some kind of role based on a DC Comics property that hadn't yet been brought to the big screen. Johnson offered the hint that his character has "the power of Superman," which immediately led to fans guessing that Shazam would be the role. However, it sounds like Johnson has his choice of what DC Comics character he'll bring to life. Speaking with The Associated Press, Johnson is having trouble between playing Shazam or his arch nemesis, anti-hero Black Adam, one of the former wrestler's favorite characters from the world of DC Comics. Maybe fans will help?
It's interesting that Johnson has his choice between the hero and villain, especially since the actor was linked to the role of Black Adam all the way back in 2007, before Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment were working on big plans for a DC cinematic universe, which now has two films planned each year through 2020. Surely Johnson is listening to his fans, so be sure to let him know on Twitter which role you would rather see him play on the big screen. But no matter which one he chooses, Johnson says, "I am putting my heart and soul and my bones into this role." We're not sure how much time Johnson has left before he has to make a choice, but we'll keep you posted. Which character should Dwayne Johnson play?
