Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Reveals Why He Chose To Play 'Black Adam' Instead Of 'Shazam'

Confirming that he had a choice between playing Black Adam and Shazam, Furious 7 star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson reveals the reason he chose the villain/anti-hero over the heroic member of the Justice League, and talks about developing the movie since as far back as 2007...


Talking to Digital Spy in the video interview above to promote Furious 7, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson reveals why he decided to choose the role of Black Adam over Shazam in the 2019 movie. "Because I felt ultimately, and this is with all due respect to Shazam/Billy Batson, it's a mythology that I love; it's been with me for almost ten years now; what made me choose Black Adam? I just felt Black Adam was inherently more interesting to me because I felt there were more layers to Black Adam starting out as a slave and then ultimately becoming the anti-hero who we enjoy today." To hear even more from the actor (including how fans influenced his decision), keep watching the video.
