The Rock as Black Adam

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Cast As Black Adam

By: Dave Clark's official. The Rock has been cast as Black Adam in an upcoming 'Shazam' film. For those unfamiliar with the character, Black Adam has been both a villain and an anti-hero throughout his long character history. He can fly, is super strong, can manipulate lightening and magic and is comparable to Shazam in almost every way. While we finally have this confirmation of Rock's role, we still don't know when the film is scheduled for release so stay tuned for that news!

Here's the official tweet from The Rock announcing the news:

What do you guys think of the casting news? Not too surprising, but at least the speculating can end!
