    Default Congratulations

    Congrats to Rockman Dwayne. Hope he kills it in the role, brings Black Adam completely and totally to life.

    Wonder if he'll also play CM, or if WB have gotten/will get another actor for that role? If so...then who?

    Nice to hear it's getting going that bit further with the writer as well.

    Hope many are happy with this, and Johnson, getting what he possibly wanted.

    Who is another actor that bulky like the Rock to play Shazam.
    Interesting Fact: Cyclops runs the X-Office.

    Uh-oh. Black Adam is far more interesting than Cap Marvel / Shazam. But the Rock cant carry a movie...

    Excited. Hope they adapt the Johns-Frank story for the movie.

    I'm glad his playing Black Adam and not Captain Marvel. I see him more as the "baddie" than the "goodie".

    An adult oriented Shazam movie wouldn't sell I don't think. It is going to be more of a kid friendly movie that Rock should be more than able to handle.

    The only problem with this casting, which is perfect by the way, is that now you have to find someone who can play Captain Marvel (Shazam) and look like he could realistically hold his own against the Rock, and that is no mean feat.
    You don't have to break it to fix it.

    I just had a weird idea in my head, what if the Shazam movie....has nothing to do with the regular Shazam and is kind of a Black Adam origin story?

    It might be the case....

    Even though I believe he could play the huge and powerful manchild perfectly, his looks screamed Black Adam. Now, who is going to play Captain Mar.. Shazam? They 'll need to find someone equally imposing, who must also have comedic timing...

    Regardless, great casting! Go SHAZAM/WB!

    You would have fans crying foul, especially considering Black Adam is not Shazam. It would be a difficult film to market.
