After a long bit of speculation whether he’d be playing Shazam or Black Adam in DC’s adaptation of the beefy and family friendly comic, the actor/hunk of fuel known as The Rock revealed he will indeed be playing the villain. Which is such a good decision since Black Adam’s not boring and he doesn’t transform into a goddamn boy.
It also opens up tons of fun possibilities for the role of Shazam himself. With the massive size, charisma, and screen presence of The Rock, there needs to be someone on the other side who can match up. Who fits the bill and is equally sizable? Good question.
Or they could just get Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
