After many a tease over the past few months Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has finally confirmed he will play a role in an upcoming DC Comics adaptation. Whether as Shazam or Black Adam the actor has apparently yet to decide.
" ‘Be good and good will follow.’ That’s what my parents used to always tell me. But you know, Mr. Kent, I was good before they were taken from me, I was good at the foster home, and I was good about fifteen minutes ago! I’m starting to think being good isn’t good for me…"
"It seems that way sometimes, doesn’t it? But that’s because good is hard. Bad is always easy."

Dwayne Johnson, better known to wrestling fans from his time in WWE as The Rock, has long been rumored to be up for a starring role in a DC Comics superhero movie, and now it looks like it’s actually going to happen. In an interview with Total Film, Johnson confirmed that he has been in talks with DC Entertainment for years and that an agreement is in place and an announcement is coming soon.
As for just what that announcement will be, well, based on what Johnson says in the interview, there’s a pretty good chance he might be playing Shazam in an upcoming film.
