The Rock is Most Likely Shazam

In a recent interview, Dwayne Johnson gives a clue on who he will be in the upcoming Justice League film

Speaking to Totalfilm, Dwayne Johnson went in to detail about the superhero he may be playing in the upcoming Justice League film currently due out in 2017. 

“There’s a character out there that we’re going to announce soon... He has the power of Superman. And it’s not the Green Lantern by the way. Believe me – Jon Stewart – he is a character who I wanted to play, but there was already a version of Green Lantern, and so now we’ve gone in a slightly different direction. But this character has the power of Superman. He can throw down.”

“Just say the word. That’s all I’m going to say.”

This is pretty exciting stuff happening folks. The Rock has the kind of charisma DC could use in its upcoming superhero flicks. While personally I originally wanted Dwayne to play Jon Stewart, I can appreciate the role of Shazam as well. For those unfamiliar with Shazam, he has powers not unlike superman (think strength and speed) and turns in to his superpowered form by saying "SHAZAM!"
