Check out comments Dwayne Johnson made about playing Black Adam in the upcoming DC movie Shazam.

Johnson attended the world premiere for his latest action flick San Andreas and offered Black Adam is "fueled by a righteous anger."

"I can’t wait.  He’s a unique type of villain. For the fans out there that know the mythology, when you start off as a slave, you’re not in a good mood! There’s a heavy wrath that a lot of people have to pay. But when it’s fueled by a righteous anger, if you will, like Black Adam, then you open up to what the character can be, which I’m really excited about. That’s why he’s not just a straightforward bad guy."

Shazam presently has a 2019 release, but Johnson said a while back it's possible it could get moved up. Presently, no director is attached or actor for Shazam has been cast as of yet.

Dwayne Johnson stars in San Andreas, which has a May 29th release.
