Dwayne Johnson knows exactly what he's doing. The action star continues to toy with the public in regard to his next big role. For months (maybe longer) he's used social media to promote his partnership with DC Comics and Warner Bros. Johnson has been rumored to appear in either Justice League or a solo Shazam film.
While promoting his latest venture, Hercules, Johnson has added more fuel to the fire. The Spanish website La Naccion recently ran a quote from the actor in which he confirmed a project was in the works. But he refused to specify what character he'll play.
"It's the interpretation of a character from DC Comics," said Johnson. "It's the story of Shazam, but I can't say if I'm playing Shazam or Black Adam...In this case in particular, I believe we will do [the part] justice. I'm putting my heart and soul into this role."
As most of you know, Shazam is a superhero, while Black Adam is his archenemy. While it would be interesting to see Johnson channel Shazam, we'd love to see him as a villain. He's made a career of playing heroes. Let's switch it up a bit.
