Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson will play Black Adam in DC’s SHAZAM film

Recently announced by DC Comics and Warner Bros., Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson will be playing villain Black Adam in their new SHAZAM film. Black Adam is the main adversary of Justice League member and hero Shazam/Captain Marvel. Warner Bros. has recently added the Shazam movie into their DC film lineup that’ll take place within the next few years.

Originally, there was talk of Johnson playing Shazam, but it’s plain to see that Black Adam is the superior character. Villains tend to have less rules and more flexibility in fights. The Rock has the acting chops to be on the darker side and I’m glad to see a very good casting choice by Warner and DC.
