The Rock has been teasing us for months when it comes to who he will be playing in an upcoming DC movie. Dwayne Johnson gave an interview to La Nacion and it was translated by Comic Book Movie, where he talks about a Shazam movie.
“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.”
La Nacion claims this is the 1st time he has confirmed his involvement with Shazam, but they could not get him to say if he would be in the upcoming Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. He did hint toward Shazam being set in the same world as Superman, Batman, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman.
“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.”
Could this be hinting that he might have some sort of role with the Justice League? We will just have to wait and see when the studio releases an official announcement, which Johnson did state would happen very soon.
