Do you smell what The Rock is cookin’? You damn well better be! I got the word today through Comicbook.com that Dwyane Johnson aka The Rock will be playing the anti-hero BLACK ADAM for DC’s live action adaptation of Shazam! I also read that this movie will have HUMOR and not be part of the Justice League Universe that Batman v. Superman will eventually set up. What do you guys think of this? Will this be a downer? Do you guys want Shazam to be a part of the Justice League?
As for me, I would certainly like it to be. Dwayne Johnson is one of the biggest action stars in this generation and I’m glad he’s finally gotten a big break into comic book movies. With Batista coming from the WWE like how The Rock did and getting his big break from the successful Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s a bit hard to understand why The Rock didn’t get his break first into comic book movies. All I know is, The Rock will definitely make this movie worth the wait and I’m excited to see how he’ll look in that Black Adam get up! For now, we’ll just have to enjoy some fan art!!!
