While Dwayne Johnson has been making the rounds for Hercules in Mexico, the actor also talked with the local press about the Shazam movie.

Yesterday saw Johnson mention he is giving his heart and soul to Shazam, and now The Rock talks more about the film with the Omlette where he confirms it's definitely happening and also that Black Adam is involved.

It's unknown which character Dwayne Johnson will be playing.

Translated via Bing:

My trip to Comic-Con was a surprise, so I called personally to the executives at New Line and Warner Bros. to see if they would like to announce Shazam with me there, "said the actor. "Unfortunately, it wasn't time yet, but the official announcement should happen soon".

"I'm 100% sure that the film will happen. If we were talking about him since 2008, when I was offered the role for the first time. It was just a matter of finding the right script-and it finally happened now. We have a writer who understood the story and brought an incredible approach not only to Shazam, but for the power of black Adam as well, "concluded, suggesting that the film will seek some sort of balance between these two antagonistic characters.
