DWAYNE "THE ROCK" JOHNSON CONFIRMS "SHAZAM" ROLE
Dwayne Johnson, who teased his long-rumored DC Comics movie role last month with the phrase "Just say the word," has finally confirmed he'll star in "Shazam."
However, the actor told The Associated Press he hasn't decided whether he'll play Shazam or his nemesis Black Adam -- all while admitting his fondness for the supervillain.
Johnson's name has been mentioned in the same breath as "Shazam," frequently by the actor himself, since at least 2007, when Peter Segal ("Get Smart," "50 First Dates") was attached to direct from a script most recently written by John August ("Corpse Bride," "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"). But following the failure of "Speed Racer," Warner Bros. decided to move the film closer in tone to "The Dark Knight."
