[Update] The Rock’s Role in Shazaam Movie Revealed

Update:

According to Variety Darren Lemke will pen the script (Turbo, Jack The Giant Slayer). As for Black Adam’s current standing in the DCU, apparently he ” is more of an anti-hero trying to clear his name than a villain.” So maybe they are basing this Adam on the New 52 version. That begs the question, who will play the role of Shazaam himself? Hopefully not Shaq.

Original story as follows:

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has finally revealed his role in the upcoming Shazaam movie from DC Comics and New Line Cinema. Many speculated he would play the titular hero himself based on hints the actor dropped a few months back.

Turns out he will be playing Shazaam’s longtime nemesis and corrupt Egyptian predecessor Black Adam according to his recent tweet.

I for one am excited by this bit of news, after seeing the Rock play the action hero or the good guy in most of his films, it will be refreshing to see him take on the role of a super villain… well anti-hero anyway.

New 52 Black Adam. Will The Rock’s version take inspiration from it?

Stay tuned to RGN for more info.
