It is no secret that wrestler turned actor Dwayne Johnson has been desperate to appear in a superhero movie and has mentioned a number of different DC characters that he would love to play along the way. In the past, we have seen Dwayne Johnson being linked to the likes of Lobo, who he himself admitted that he almost played, and now he has confirmed that he is finally going to appear on the big screen as a DC character, but who will it be?
Well, since Dwayne Johnson has mentioned almost playing Lobo in the past, there are suggestions that this project has been reignited and Dwayne will finally play the character. Meanwhile, there have been a lot of suggestions that we will see Dwayne Johnson as Darkseid, being introduced in an end credits scene of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, before then becoming the main villain in the next Superman standalone movie.
However, when you look into the statement that Dwayne Johnson has made about playing an upcoming DC character on the big screen, it seems quite clear that the actor will be playing Shazam. Dwayne makes a very clear and obvious hint to who he is going to play and, to us, it definitely seems like it will be Shazam.
Johnson told Total Film, "I will say this. There's a character out there that we're going to announce very soon that I'm going to play, and I'll just say this: This character has the power of Superman, he can throw down. Just say the word. That's all I'm going to say."
