Dwayne Johnson to Play a Superhero Villain in 'Shazam'
According to ET Online, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson confirmed that he will play in the upcoming superhero film. The actor turned to Twitter to spill the beans that he'll be playing Black Adam, the villain in the film. Accompanied with an image of the animated version of his new character fighting Shazam, was the caption "'Kneel at his feet or get crushed by his boot.' My honor to become.. #BlackAdam #TheAntiHero #DCComics." As the the arch-nemesis of Shazam (or Captain Marvel), Adam is a slave turned defender of the Khandaq nation. After talking with the Associated Press back in August about how he was "putting my heart and soul and my bones into this role," we can't wait to see how it turns out.
