Did Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Confirm His Role as Black Adam, or Just Tease Us Again?

hollywood-movie-newsThere has been a long-standing rumor that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would be starring in a DC Universe movie. But which one remained the question. At one time rumors had him cast as the Green Lantern John Stewart. But more recently all things have pointed to him playing Shazam, or his archenemy, Black Adam.

Johnson himself even hinted that he would be playing one those roles back at Comic-Con in July. Today, he posted to twitter that it would be “My honor to become.. #BlackAdam“. Does this confirm the rumors? Or is just another tease? The discovery of newly registered domains for DC movies suggests a Shazam movie is imminent. Hopefully Warner Bros. will make an official announcement very soon.

UPDATE: Not sure if this makes it official, but Variety is reporting Johnson is Black Adam, and Darren Lemke will be scripting the Shazam movie.
