As part of the promotion for his new movie Hercules, Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) had a chat with Total Film about the swirling rumours surrounding his addition to the DC Cinematic Universe.
And, in a remarkably candid response, Dwayne responded by saying “There’s a character out there that we’re going to announce soon” he revealed. “He has the power of Superman. And it’s not the Green Lantern by the way. Believe me – Jon Stewart – he is a character who I wanted to play, but there was already a version of Green Lantern, and so now we’ve gone in a slightly different direction. But this character has the power of Superman. He can throw down.”
And then he dropped one sledgehammer-subtle hint by adding “Just say the word.”
Check out the video of the interview below, and let us know what you guys think about the prospect of A) a live-action Shazam movie, and B) The Rock himself in the title role. Sound off in the comments, folks.
