Well Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has FINALLY confirmed that he will indeed have a role in the upcoming Shazam! movie from DC Comics and Warner Bros. After months of speculation and rumors, also a lot of “talk” regarding the project for the star himself, Johnson has confirmed his role as the anti-hero, Black Adam, via his Twitter account!

I love that he will be playing the villain/anti-hero of the film and not Shazam! himself. Variety has also confirmed that Darren Lemke (Goosebumps, Jack the Giant Slayer) will be writing the script. What do you think about this casting? Sound off in the comments!
