Dwayne Johnson hints at upcoming Shazam role!

3958636-20130707-121758 - CopyAs 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.

    The Rock as Captain Marvel,I’ll have to see it in order to believe it!

  2. The Rock ruins every movie he’s in…

  3. I’ve liked most of The Rock’s movies, so I really hope he does a lot for DC Comics.
