Dwayne Johnson has confirmed that he's taking up the title role in the film adaptation of Shazam. This is an odd one to me. I like the Rock, he's great on the big screen. But Shazam is an odd character to convert to the modern audience. The name is odd, tied to his metamorphous and his costume with the half cape is Sienfeldian.
That said, the Rock can carry a role and project power, which will carry far and they've worked toward making Shazam's look more modern. So who can say, but I'm in!
