In an interview from a Spanish website, La Nacion, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has confirmed that he will star in the Warner Bros adaptation of the comic book character ‘Shazam’, but he is unsure if he will play hero ‘Shazam’ or the antagonist ‘Black Adam‘.
Here is his statement from a roughly translated version of the Spanish interview:
“Interpret a character in DC Comics. It’s the story of Shazam, but I can not say now if (my role) is Shazam and Black Adam. We’ve been developing for some time and have been a fan of anti-heroes. A this particular I think that we will make justice. I’m putting my heart and soul into this role.”
According to the interview, he also teased about ‘Justice League’ and ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’. He has not confirmed on both.The site also said :
“Neither specified whether this is a film dedicated to Shazam, but noted that the universe and mythology of the comics company interconnect. “Now is happening with Superman and Batman. Aquaman and Wonder Woman come. I’m excited and I know fans are also excited. DC and Warner Bros. have great mythology that we will respect, we will create something very cool and good foundation.”
Does this sound like Shazam will be joining the mentioned heroes in one movie other than a stand alone?
