So what is the latest in comic book movie news? Well, famous wrestlers are!
ForeverGeek.com has reported that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is currently developing the big screen “Shazam” adaptation along with director Pete Segal, and of course, comic book fanboys are quite thrilled about this.
While the project is not listed on his IMDB.com profile yet, fans are a-twitter about the idea.
The great thing about the casting though is Johnson’s decision to let fans dictate which character they wanted him to play. As a big star, it would have been a given for him to play Captain Marvel. But the fans are clamoring for him to play another character — none other than Black Adam himself, and he has announced that he will, indeed go for that role.
Fans even made a mock-up of the costume they want him to be in.
