Dwayne Johnson will be playing Black Adam in the Shazam movie, which WB set for a 2019 release date.

Now it's learned it's possible the Shazam movie might be coming earlier than expected.

Dwayne Johnson was a presenter at this past Sundays' Academy Awards. MTV caught up with the actor to get an update on Shazam.

"It may happen a little ealier than what has been predicted," Johnson offered. "The script is coming in, it's great. The support from the studio has been great, and it's just a great opportunity, especially with Black Adam, where you can take a guy who starts off as a bad guy and turns into an anti-hero. We can make him vicious; a little bit of winking charm."

Johnson also says Shazam hasn't been cast.

"Don't know, yet."

Previous interviews also saw Dwayne Johnson confirm Shazam is set in the same universe as Batman Vs. Superman.

Dwayne Johnson has Fast and Furious 7 and San Andeas coming out next year.
