SHAZAM Star Dwayne Johnson Teases "Fun" And "Optimistic" DC Films Universe After Meeting With Execs

SHAZAM Star Dwayne Johnson Teases "Fun" And "Optimistic" DC Films Universe After Meeting With Execs

After a big meeting with WB execs to discuss the future of the DC Films Universe, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has issued a lengthy statement about the big changes which are coming to these movies!

Ever since the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the key word from pretty much everyone involved with a movie set in the DC Films Universe has been "fun." Suicide Squad strived for that and failed amid some pretty horrendous decisions made in the editing suite, but we've heard on multiple occasions that Justice League will be the film which sets this world on a whole new path.

However, based on comments from Shazam star Dwayne Johnson, he'll be playing a key role in helping to change the tone of these movies moving forward. That does seem a little odd to hear considering the fact that Black Adam has done some seriously dark and shady sh*t in the comic books, right? 

One of the movie's producers and the Vice President of The Rock’s production company, Seven Bucks Productions, was also there and he too has teased some big things to come for the DC Films Universe. Perhaps we're going to get some big casting news in the near future or even confirmation that Henry Cavill's Superman will somehow factor into Shazam. For now, we'll all just have to wait and see.

What do you guys think about Johnson's comments about some "fun" and "optimistic" changes?
