Dwayne Johnson has finally confirmed he will take on the role of Black Adam.
Johnson has been dropping hints over his DC involvement for years, and recently narrowed down the options to Adam or Shazam, but has now taken to Twitter to confirm his role in an upcoming Shazam movie.

Black Adam has long been Shazam’s nemesis, though in more recent c0mics the character has appeared to change his nature and even begin to make up for past indiscretions. As a director, remaining cast or even release date for the movie, it is far too early to speculate.
Warner Bros. recently registered a host of web domains, including JusticeLeagueFilm.com,, WonderWomanTheMovie,com, AquaManMovie.com and, naturally, ShazamMovie.com. The studio also have a host of release dates to fill.
