Dwayne Johnson Confirms Role as DC’s Shazam


After months and months of speculation and teasers, Dwayne Johnson has finally confirmed that he will be playing the part of Black Adam in DC’s planned adaptation of Shazam. The official announcement was made by Johnson via a Twitter post that contains a picture of Black Adam putting a headlock on Shazam, with the message “kneel at his feet or get crushed by his boot”, before continuing, “my honour to become… #BlackAdam”.

For the uninitiated, Black Adam is the nemesis of Captain Marvel, possessing the same powers and has been a villain, a hero, and an anti hero in different parts of his history. These days he’s mostly an anti-hero. As for whose side he’s going to be on in the film, Johnson also used the hashtag “#TheAntiHero” so we’re going with that.
