SHAZAM or BLACK ADAM? Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Continues To Tease His DC Comics Role

Hercules star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has taken to Twitter to seemingly reveal which DC character he'll be playing. So, is it Black Adam, Shazam, or both? Well, that's not entirely clear, but you can check out his Tweet and try to figure it out for yourselves after the jump!

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson pretty much said outright that he'll be playing Shazam at some point in the very near future during an interview for Hercules earlier this week, but he has now seemingly confirmed the speculation which followed via his official Twitter account. Cleverly, he doesn't actually reveal whether it'll be Shazam or Black Adam that he's signed up to star as for DC Comics and Warner Bros., though the latter is a character he has most often expressed interest in in the past.

Either way, this is pretty exciting, and with a tease like this it wouldn't be at all surprising for it to be made 100% official at the studio's panel at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con...

WB is going to surprise a LOT of people at this year's SDCC.
marvel72 - 7/24/2014, 1:40 PM
so he's playing superman.
LubedUp - 7/24/2014, 1:40 PM
"Someone's" means it's optional, in reference to that picture, he is Black Adam.
TheAbaryMan369 - 7/24/2014, 1:41 PM
He's gonna be Black Atom. Don't kill me, I have an opinion.
Pasto - 7/24/2014, 1:41 PM
Imagine if this ends up being a 3 piece portrait?

Batman
Superman
Rock's Unnamed role
DEVLIN712 - 7/24/2014, 1:42 PM
Yesterday was a Marvel news day, today's a DC news day

When the rock walks on stage the place is going to explode
EzioKenway1225 - 7/24/2014, 1:44 PM
its gonna be announced this weekend
Pasto - 7/24/2014, 1:44 PM
I could actually see that. If you look closely at the batman portrait, there seems to be some red lining the right side of the photo. Could it be Superman?

Or....

Jollem - 7/24/2014, 1:45 PM

Darktower - 7/24/2014, 1:45 PM
"Just say the Word!"
SHAZAM!!
charlie2094 - 7/24/2014, 1:46 PM
Certainly going to be announced at comic-con, reckon he'll be Shazam!
ProfessorX - 7/24/2014, 1:46 PM
He would be perfect for Black Adam.
AlphaMasterFlex - 7/24/2014, 1:46 PM
He is playing Shazam & Black Adam!
Reasonnnn - 7/24/2014, 1:46 PM
DEVLIN why you trying to start a flame war?

:p
Pasto - 7/24/2014, 1:47 PM
I don't know if my body will be able to handle SDCC.
ManWithNoName - 7/24/2014, 1:47 PM
Just tell us what your cooking!
blvdnoise - 7/24/2014, 1:48 PM
Starting to think Adam myself..
Nubase - 7/24/2014, 1:49 PM
the thing is..there could be someone else could be whoever the rock is not, also remember when the rock first teased he was gona be a dc character he said that its not green lantern as that role is already stamped, there could be huge news coming this saturday, how WB/DC could keep a lid on all this is crazy, also aquaman too
blvdnoise - 7/24/2014, 1:49 PM
@AlphaMaster Whoah.. That would.. Whoah..
Jollem - 7/24/2014, 1:49 PM
the tweet obviously means he's black adam

blvdnoise - 7/24/2014, 1:50 PM
@Jollem Yep..
FirstAvenger - 7/24/2014, 1:50 PM
He's.... Superman?
Knightrider - 7/24/2014, 1:50 PM
Maybe he is playing us. The 'Someone's gonna get it' could be relating to Superman in that picture... So this could be classic misdirection as we all assume it relates to the other two.
Cles - 7/24/2014, 1:51 PM
LOL! Now he's just having fun. Trolling CBM fans on SDCC weekend. That. Is. Hilarious!
blvdnoise - 7/24/2014, 1:51 PM
I kind of wanted him to be Shazam..
MrBlackjack - 7/24/2014, 1:52 PM
Plot twist: He's both.
Gandhi - 7/24/2014, 1:52 PM
Whoever he's playing he'll be the most likeable character on screen
KingOnslaught - 7/24/2014, 1:52 PM

Wow. Can't wait. Should be an amazing weekend that's for sure. :)
DylanTBest - 7/24/2014, 1:54 PM
I want to see this on the big screen:
blvdnoise - 7/24/2014, 1:54 PM
Well.. The rock IS left handed lol
AC1 - 7/24/2014, 1:54 PM
So he's playing Superman?
DeusExSponge - 7/24/2014, 1:55 PM
MrBlackJack - That would be hilarious! Not sure which one I want him to be though, he's got the charisma and goofiness for Captain Marvel/Shazam. But he's also got the looks and badassness for Black Adam!
DylanTBest - 7/24/2014, 1:56 PM
Curse of Shazam is in my top 5 Nu52 books, hopefully they take heavy influence from it.
TheDudeRusty - 7/24/2014, 1:57 PM
Someone commented "no Spider-Man" on that pic lol.
NovaCorpsFan - 7/24/2014, 1:58 PM
The tease could be either of them!
McGee - 7/24/2014, 1:59 PM
F*ck it, I'm gonna pretend I didn't make a joke about Rock playing Superman.
