Dwayne Johnson has been involved with DC for a while now, as he nailed down the role of villain Black Adam in the eventual Shazam! movie. The actor has teased excitement about the role before, but it looks like things over at DC are heating up in regards to the upcoming film.
Shazam! producer Hiram Garcia met with DC Comics executives yesterday, and he said big things were ahead. Today, it was The Rock's turn to chat with the big-wigs.
Had a very cool and strategic meeting with the heads of DC about their entire universe. As a hard core DC fan, to get a real sense of the tonal shifts and developments coming in these future movies has me fired up. Something we, as DC fans have all been waiting for for a very long time. Hope, optimism & FUN. Even when talking about the the most ruthless villain/anti-hero of all time finally coming to life. Prepare yourselves DC Universe. #KneelAtHisFeet #OrGetCrushedByHisBoot #BlackAdam⚡️
The actor posted a picture of himself on Instagram, with a caption explaining his DC meeting. not only did he say that Shazam! was moving in the right direction, but he teased that the entire DC Universe is trending up.
Johnson said in the post that he is also a huge fan of the DC properties, and that he loves the way they're rolling forward with their movies.
After this comment, it seems as though The Rock will have a large role in the DC Extended Universe going forward.
