Same. Probably deliberately holding back though as they won't want such news overshadowed by Marvel.

Dwayne Johnson will be awesome whichever role he's in. I would be more concerned about the script/director.

Black Adam as an anti-hero could work, and fit in with the whole "Dark and Gritty" tone of the DCCU. But I feel like he would just come across as a General Zod type, but huge and fighting villains.

I'd prefer it if he were Captain Marvel, and then joins the Justice League later. I just see some really fun scenes happening with a guy the size of The Rock, who is almost as powerful as Superman interacting with the JL but acting like a kid.

I think fun scenes like that would balance out all the serious stuff nicely in the DCCU.

The rock playing up the kid act could make for some really funny scenes.

So Dwayne Johnson has confirmed he is indeed playing Black Adam.

This increases the pressure of who they could cast to play Shazam, because he has to be virtually Johnson's equal.

Well Shazam doesn`t have to be exactly as large as the rock. It kind of makes sense to have the villain look a little more imposing.

Awesome news even if it was expected. Was kinda hoping the Rock would play Cap, but I'm more than happy with him playing Black Adam.

To be honest nothing spectacular, he's one of those guys with potential that are waiting for a huge platform. Like the Rock, he has an instantly likeable personality and can do comedy (How I met your Mother). And the dude is jacked as hell.

Yes! He was awesome in HIMYM, and looking at his performance on that show I can easily see him playing the big kid. And damn I want my bod to be like his.

Plus I think it's about time he caught a big break so yeah I'd be all for that casting.

Lol I know. I was shocked when I first learned that was him.

But hey that's just more proof he can play a big kid. Between that and True Blood and HIMYM the guy obviously has range. Would be great if he makes it big. Especially great if he does it through the superhero genre, and a nice irony he started out as Flash Thompson.

I'll repeat in this thread:

My choice for director is Spike Jonze

My choice for Shazam is Michael Trucco. I wouldn't be totally opposed to Joe Manganello getting the role. If WB is smart, they'll choose someone based on acting talent rather than physique. As we saw with Chris Pratt, physique can be built.

He was the runner up for Superman, recently. He's looking for the next platform to raise his profile, like Henry Cavill was once. Think I'd be okay with him physically, for the role.

Chris Pratt even with his bulking up does not have the right physique for Shazam. Especially when BA is being played by The Rock.

Obviously actings the most important thing, but with this particular part the physique is also going to be really important to the role, so they can't do a Wonder Woman job with it, and put some skinny guy through training for a few months. In fact considering Cap Marvel might be Billy most the time, and The Rock will obviously take a lot of the screen time as well, the Physique may actually be more important than the acting for this particular part. Just depends how they plan go about the role. But either way the Physique is really important for this one IMHO.

And Joe's acting skills are good. This particular role I think he'd be well suited for. But who knows who WB will pick in the end. It's not like any of their casting decisions have been predictable.



Crap, I just thought.. What if Jason Momoa isn't Aquaman and he's Shazam?! Because that Aquaman rumor still hasn't been confirmed, but the last time he was interviewed about it he hinted he's hiding something.
