Dwayne Johnson confirmed as Black Adam

Speculation has been rampant as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been hinting at his involvement in the “Shazam” film for a while. Well, it’s time for that speculation to come to and end, as Johnson posted to Twitter that he would be playing Black Adam.

I had originally hoped he would play the Shazam/Captain Marvel character, as it would be nice to have a titular superhero character played by a person of color, but at least as the villain Johnson’s acting chops will have a chance to come out.

It will likely result in another DC Comics film where I end up relating more to the villain than the hero sadly.

Still no word on who will play young Billy Batson or his Shazam alterego, the Shazam film should hit theaters in either 2016 or 2017.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
