Is SAN ANDREAS Director Brad Peyton In The Running To Re-Team With The Rock For The SHAZAM Movie?

Nothing too solid on this, but some recent Twitter evidence might just point to Brad Peyton being in the running to re-team with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for the upcoming Shazam movie. Check it out...

Both Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Geoff Johns recently revealed that they'd had a very successful meeting regarding the first big-screen outing for DC Comics superhero, Shazam. The Rock is set to play the villainous Black Adam in the movie, though the search (presumably) continues for an actor to step into the role of Billy Batson/Shazam - however, we might just have an idea who is in line to helm the picture.

Batman News has noticed that following the meeting, Johns followed director Brad Peyton on Twitter. Now, you might not think that means a whole lot, but it is worth noting that fans have managed to get the jump on several big announcements in this manner, including Rick Famuyiwa coming aboard The Flash (he's since left the project), and Joe Manganiello's casting as Deathstroke in Ben Affleck's solo Batman film. Also, Peyton has previously directed The Rock in the likes of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, San Andreas, and the upcoming Rampage movie.

Of course, these type of things don't all pan out that way and this might well turn out to be a mere coincidence - but it is definitely worth keeping an eye on at any rate.
