Dwayne Johnson Shall Play Black Adam in New DC Film

Posted by Unknown Thursday, September 4, 2014
Well, I called it. Right here on these pages, I wrote about DC offering The Rock whichever role he wished between Shazam or his evil counterpart, Black Adam. I stated he would most likely choose the evil Black Adam, not only because he fits the look more, but also because it's more fun to play the villain. It helps that Johnson looks like he could kick serious butt all over the place.

Johnson has decided to play the part and stated on his Twitter account: "Kneel at his feet or get crushed by his boot. My honor to become. #BlackAdam #TheAntiHero #DCComics." I think he went a little crazy with the hashtags, and he forgot another dot at the end of the ellipses. I won't delve too deeply into typos. We all make them. Johnson has said the character is one of his favorites and that he is intrigued about playing an anti-hero. There is currently no release date for the film, but we know DC has snatched some future dates already, year by year. Which slot is slated for this Shazam movie, we don't know yet.

This is a good move by DC, one of their few so far. This means they are serious about getting big action stars for their blockbusters. Getting Johnson, a solid actor with good box office clout, they have made it clear they want to bring the power and get people excited about their films. Even if you don't know a thing about the character, you can get pumped about seeing Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as a super villain on the big screen. I know he's gonna be great.

Are we excited? Did he make the right choice or would you rather see him in the role of Shazam and be the hero? Sound off below.
