Dwayne Johnson is Black Adam!

Sep. 3, 2014by:

Dwayne Johnson has been teasing fans for months now on an unannounced DC role he would be taking.  While initially it was thought to be that of the titular Shazam, later rumors pointed in the direction of Black Adam.  Audiences hoped that some light would be shed in this past year's San Diego Comic Con, but sadly this was not the case.   It looks like that whatever needed to be ironed out has been done, and the question of The Rock taking up Shazam or Black Adam has been answered: Dwayne Johnson took to Twitter earlier today to announce that he will be playing Black Adam!

Check it out:

While Black Adam was created as the main adversary for Shazam, recent comics have painted the villain as more of an antihero trying to clear his name. Given the charisma of The Rock, I wouldn't be surprised if they go in that direction for the film.  Darren Lemke (GOOSEBUMPS, JACK THE GIANT SLAYER) has been hired to pen the script.  In the original "leaked release dates" of DC films, SHAZAM was supposd to arrive in July of 2016.  The updated DC slate has an unannounced film set for August 5 of 2016.  Could that belong to SHAZAM?  Regardless, I'll be very curious to see who they sign on they can go toe-to-toe with The Rock.  His stature is about as formidable as they come. I mean, did you see PAIN AND GAIN? He's ridiculous!

Who??

I don't think this is as big of an announcment as The Rock and DC think it is in their minds. Although some of you people seem to know and care who this is, but "Black Adam" just brings crickets for me!

I like it

The Rock is perfect or this role. I love the idea of a villian and a hero with grey areas in between. You can't do white hats for good guys and black hats for bad guys anymore. The bad guy has to have a motivation that makes his endgame understandable, believable and, yes, you need to empathise with his goal. In "Man of Steel" I totally got what Zod ws trying to do. In "The Rock" Itotally got what General Hummel was trying to do. In "Falling Down" I get why William Foster behaved the way he

I also get why Magento behaves the way he does, long before the excellent preformances of Sir Ian McKellan and Michael Fassbender,
I think The Rock (sorry, I will know Dwayne by no other name) will bring a gravitas to Black Adam that your loyalties will be split as to who wins. I just don't know who they are going to get to go toe-to-toe with him. There is no one his size that I know of who has the same acting range,,,,,

Great call, but cating Shazam will be a bear

He has to be as charismatic and jacked as Dwayne Johnson, plus be able to convince us that he can kick The Rock's ass. And also deliver the "boy inside the man" vibe that Shazam has. Maybe Ryan Kwanten, if he packed on 60 pounds.

This means both Imhotep and The Scorpion King will have played Black Adam. Arnold Vosloo voiced the character in the animated short film.

I HATE that New 52 changed his name to Shazam. It's so fucking stupid. So every time he introduces himself a lightning bolt strikes changing him back to a kid.

Actually I just hate New 52 all together.

Here I come to rain on the parade!

Studio president just said (entertainment weekly) that this movie will have no connections to the Justice League universe they are trying to make.

So no Rock in JLA guys.

WB is just idiotic. First they say the TV universe won't be connected with the movies, now this? Unbelievably stupid move on their part, and even if the MCU films take a nosedive in quality, they'll still have the advantage.

No, he said Captain Marvel isn't a Justice League character. So he's not a part of the JL team. He didn't say anything about not having any future crossover potential. And in that whole statesmen he was only talking about captain marvel, so there is a possibility the rock will be in Justice Leagu

This is what I read:
When asked if Shazam will be connected to The Justice League, 'It feels to me like Shazam will have a tone unto itself,' said Emmerich. 'Its a DC comic, but its not a Justice League character, and its not a Marvel comic. The tone and the feeling of the movie will be different from the other range of comic book'

There is literally no better person on Earth or in the Nine Realms to play Black Adam. It's what the Rock was born to do. It will be his magnum opus. And if he gets to use two fingers to shove a character's eyeballs through the back of their head, more's the better.

The worst part is that Marvel and Black Adam have basically all Superman's powers, but they also have magic (which is his only weakness). Considering that Snyder has already diluted Clark's powers to something more reasonable, they better not overdo it with these two.....

Sounds more powerful than Superman. I don't like that at all. Superheros with too much power tend to be boring for me.

Netflix used to have the Superman/Shazaam cartoon up but it's gone now. You can Google it and still find it (maybe Daily Motion?). It's actually a really cool short movie and deal's with Marvel's powers, working with Superman, and Black Adam's backstory.

Never excited about DC casting news? I try my best to not be one-sided towards Marvel but DC keeps failing to wow me. And I'm saying this despite my love for the Rock. Hopefully DoJ turns that around for me. I WANT to like DC. Whatever, bring on the downvotes.

I hear you. Since seeing the poster in I Am Legend I have been excited for a Batman vs Superman film. The odd thing is, now that it's happening, I can't seem to generate excitment for it. I think Man of Steel and that OTT second half is what has done it. Still, I would love for it to be AWESOME! Same for this.

It's really not that weird. Unlike characters who get their powers from radiation or chemical accidents, these two were chosen and given their powers magically. Granted, like Guardians I could see this going bad if it's not in the hands of a very capable director, but I think it's every bit as solid an idea as Wonder Woman (from a magic island no one can see), Black Panther (from an advanced scientific kingdom no one knows about) or Aquaman (from a legendary city at the bottom of the ocean).

Seriously, once you get past Superman (who's an alien, so therefore not bound by human DNA limitations), all the heroes are a little ridiculous.

Okay, Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark is the #1 best superhero casting, but this is definitely #2 (at least till they cast The Rock as Lobo in a film.)

Perhaps Joe Manganiello for Shazam?? He's a good actor and is muscular enough to go head to head with Johnson's Black Adam.

And he was on the shortlist for Superman and Batman, so obviously DC likes the guy.

Glad to see the Rock getting a major role like this.

I don't know who black Adam or shazam are, other than comic book characters. Would it kill the author to put a brief background about the characters in the story. Sometimes I think they forget this is a movie site and not a comic book site, and we don't all read comic books.

Oh please Konig.....if you're going to write a story about a major comic book character, how hard is it to include a paragraph to explain his basic origins or how the characters have interacted in the past? Of course you can go look it up, but it's lazy writing. The character Johnson is playing is key to the story......how do you justify not even giving a minor recap?

Black Adam is one of the most powerful villains in the DC universe, so I'm glad DC got a powerhouse performer like The Rock to play him. This is wonderful casting, I can't wait to see the Shazam movie now. I also have a feeling that they'll use the Rock again as the villain in Justice League. I don't think DC will want to use Darkseid right away. Using Adam as their first villain is a perfect fit. He's strong enough ad smart enough to take on the entire Justice League by himself.

This is brilliant casting! Black Adam is an extremely powerful and intelligent anti-hero. He's an amazing and complex character that 'The Rock' will OWN! I have a feeling that Black Adam will not only be the villain in 'Shazam', but also in the first 'Justice League' film. Also, I think Black Adam will be the Loki for the DC universe, expect to see him a lot (which is a good thing).

And Marvel will add another pasty white guy.....

.....to their stable of superheroes. Seriously, who is doing the casting there? Johnson will be great in the role, but he'd be even better as Marvel. With them chasing a reluctant Phoenix to be Dr Strange they'll have 12 films and the only minority heroes are Falcon (an ordinary guy), Rhodes (an ordinary guy in someone else's suit), and Gamora (who they painted green).

Thank you Jeff.....complete brain fart here. I am annoyed that Marvel hasn't gone ahead with Black Panther or some other character of ANY other backround than white European. DC actually has the jump on them, so while I would have rather seen Johnson play Shazaam, at least they've tried to shake things up a bit.

But yeah, my total bad on the cross reference.

I still would have love to have seen The Rock as Shazaam (even though I obviously blew it with the DC/Marvel thing.....I plead lack of quality coffee). His personality screams 10 year-old boy! I think he'll be cool as the villain (even if it's a complicated villain/anti-hero), but I think he would have been so cool as Shazaam.

Now the question is, who are you going to get that can stand next to him in the scene and not look like he should be laughed out of the movie.....

Goldenarmz, maybe it's a question of which movies they've approved. Seriously, an Ant Man film about a guy who isn't a scientist and steals the suit after Ant Man is ancient and retired? That comes before ANYTHING with a hero who looks a little different? I wouldn't have changed any of the Marvel regulars, but at least pick a film to do with Phase 2 (and announce it before The Thief Of Ant Man) that has a super-powered woman or someone of a different ethnicity.

I think what's really annoying me is their fetishistic pursuit of Phoenix for the role of Strange, despite the fact that Phoenix embodies NONE of the characteristics of the hero. He also has no experience with that kind of a film and has no particular charisma. Someone else sold me on the idea of Pedro Pascal (The Viper) playing Strange. Tell me that wouldn't be great? Tell me Pascal couldn't play the charismatic but egomaniac doctor? Tell me you couldn't see him playing the all-powerful sorcerer? Instead we have a great indie actor who has made a career out of playing introverted characters being forced into a role he's never shown he can do (and he doesn't even apparently want).

While I agree on the Marvel core, I see no reason why Steven Strange couldn't be hispanic or black. Just like DC going with Hal Jordan instead of John Stewart (who I loved in the Justice League TV series). Sometimes you can fiddle with the character's backstory without making it weird.

Awesome to finally get confirmation! Now WB and DC need to make good on the promise to give us film info by the end of August. (Sept. 3)

I don't care which of the two he ultimately ended up being. I'm just glad WB was smart enough to cast him before Marvel got their hands on him (not to say they can't). Looking forward to Shazam more than any of the other movies DC has announced--besides Justice League.

Great casting and star power for DC to build up their Justice League Universe with and cast of Superheros. Can't wait to see who DC casts for Shazam to go head to head with Johnson's Black Adam.

Yes! The Rock certainly looks the part and I'm sure he'll pull it off.

I don't think he has the chops or the presence for this role. Definitely for the other guy, but not for this guy.

No. In fact, I didn't say the word "charisma" at all. I said he doesn't have Black Adam's presence. Every single one of his deadly serious roles have been absolutely cringe-worthy. His best roles are always the ones where he gets to be charismatic, like Captain Marvel.
