And there were even more speculations about The Rock playing the bounty hunter Lobo. Even though he is not the most popular DC character, his comicbooks are fun to read and there is a big fanbase. But Dwayne is not playing Lobo either.
In a interview for Total Film about Hercules, the interviewer asked The Rock:
"You've wanted to talk about wanting to do a DC movie. There's been talk about Lobo and Black Adam. Which character are you most excited to potentially play?"
And Dwayne's answer was quite surprising. So he revealed that he and DC have a history together in choosing a character. And the main keyword Johnson mentioned were that the character they have chosen is "has the power of Superman. And it's not Green Lantern by the way". And the last thing he said was "Just throw the word".
You don't have to think much to realize he is talking about Shazam. It's not the hero we expected, but it would be really interesting to see Shazam on the big screen. DC sure have an unique approach when it comes to movies.
