For the longest time, Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) has been teasing that he'd be getting involved with the DC Cinematic Universe that Warner Bros. is working on. And folks have been pretty eager to see what role he would take. Some preferred that he become Green Lantern John Stewart, while others thought he'd be great in the role of Billy Batson's alter ego, the hero Shazam.

Well, the latter fans were SORT OF right. Though, the ones who got it spot on the head were those who fancasted him in the role of Shazam's Archnemesis, Black Adam. Here's The Rock's initial commentary on the announcement:

True enough, it is going to be made by the Warner Bros. subsidiary New Line Cinema (and thus, may not be connected to the rest of the DC Cinematic Universe). Still, though, the Shazam movie is coming together, with The Rock as supervillain Black Adam, a role he's made for! Personally, I couldn't be happier.

Stay tuned, folks, more news on this exciting new development, as it breaks! In the meantime, what do you think of the casting choice? Let us know in the poll and the comments below!
