SHAZAM Movie Confirmed, Dwayne Johnson’s Role Revealed

After months of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hinting at his involvement in a possible SHAZAM movie, Warner Bros has officially announced that the film will happen and is in the early stages of production!


The SHAZAM comics off which the film will be based tell the story of Billy Baston, who can transform into a superhero simply by saying the word “Shazam!”

Dwayne Johnson won’t be taking on the title role, but he will play Black Adam, an infamous part of the comics who started off as a villain but has become more of a Nolan-style anti-hero in recent incarnations.

Darren Lemke (TURBO, JACK THE GIANT SLAYER) is currently writing the script, with production expected to begin shortly after the script’s completion.
