Dwayne Johnson will be starring as Black Adam, the antagonist, in the upcoming ‘Shazam’ film. The film isn’t slated for release until 2019, but Dawyne Johnson has hinted at an earlier release.
MTV recently spoke to Dwayne at the 87th Academy Awards and, of course, his upcoming Shazam movie came up as a topic. When the interviewer brings up how far off the film is, Johnson interrupts and says:
“You know, it may happen a little earlier than what has been predicted,” Johnson says. “The script is coming in, it’s great. The support from the studio has been great. And it is just a great opportunity especially with Black Adam where you can take a guy that starts off as bad guy turns into an anti-hero. We can make him vicious; a little bit of winking charm.”
