So my 99.99999% asuredness that Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was to play Shazam was defeated by the 0.00001% - however I think that the casting choice is perhaps a better fit. When The Rock is a mean mutha on camera it works very well for the screen and since Black Adam has no light that shines from him, I look forward to the portrayal. With this confirmation we are still left with one question...who is going to play Shazam?
