Dwayne Johnson Teases 'Shazam' or Black Adam Role

One of the biggest events at Comic-Con 2014 is the highly-anticipated reveal of Warner Bros.' designs for the DC Movie Universe, which kicks off in 2016 with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and then continues into a rollout that - if rumored release dates are true - is going to be highly ambitious.

Justice League sequel to Batman V Superman is no surprise - neither are the Wonder Woman and Batman solo films that are expected to follow - but one thing that was very surprising within the turns of the rumor mill was mention that a Shazam movie was not only in development, but would be arriving much sooner rather than much later.

Shazam has been a DC property looking adaptation for quite a long some time, but after so many spurts and stalls, few fans expected to see it get off the ground within the current incarnation of the DCU. However, in recent months Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (pretty much THE actor attached to this project throughout its development struggles) has been teasing fans with what looks to be soon-coming announcement of his starring role in Shazam - but as for who he is playing? Well that's a different story....
