Dwayne Johnson becomes Black Atom

The 42-year-old actor, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced on twitter that he will play the anti-hero know as Black Atom in the upcoming movie Shazam! Black Atom is the arch-nemesis of Shazam, also known as Captain Marvel, who shouts “Shazam!” before becoming a hero with super-human abilities.
On twitter Dwayne writes, “Kneel at his feet or get crushed by his boot.’My honor to become #BlackAdam #TheAntiHero #DCComics,” along with a photo of Shazam and Black Atom duking it out.Variety reports that New Line Cinema has commissioned a script for the superhero flick, and that Johnson’s character will be less of a villain and “more of an anti-hero trying to clear his name.”
Even though Johnson has confirmed with twitter his role in the upcoming Shazam movie, there’s still no word yet that he will be included in the the Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice movie due sometime in March 2016.
Many fans wait in anticipation for when Warner Brothers issues a release date for this movie or who plays the lead role. Any case, viewers whom have seen The Rock in action will be happy to see him back on big screen.
