For months and months and months, Dwayne Johnson has been teasing his fans with his role in the DC Cinematic Universe. It came down to either Shazam or Black Adam and it looks like his role is set.

Dwayne Johnson tweeted this out:

"Kneel at his feet or get crushed by his boot." My honor to become... "

So there we go, it looks like Dwayne Johnson will indeed be playing Black Adam in an upcoming Shazam movie!

Years ago Dwayne Johnson was actually set to play Black Adam in a Justice League film that never went into production so he definitely has a passion to play the character.

The interesting thing here is that Johnson hash tagged "" so it looks like Johnson might not be going straight up baddie, he may still be leading a movie, just as a guy who's not completely good.

I like this casting, I would have been fine with him in either role but he certainly looks like Black Adam more than he does Shazam!

What do you guys think? Is Dwayne Johnson the perfect guy to play Black Adam, or would you have preferred him as Shazam? Comment below and let me know!
