Justice League fans just got a little bit moist, yeah I said it, based on The Rock's latest comments about Black Adam. The Shazam film is set to hit theaters in 2019, and The Rock is getting his own stand alone film as Black Adam, but we still haven't heard when the character would make his debut. That changed thanks to a recent interview with Fandango.
The Rock told Fandango that he will definitely square off against Superman, and we could see it happen sooner than later. "It’s an exciting time right now for everyone at DC because they are in a process now where they are building out [their DC universe] really nicely," Johnson said. "We have a really cool surprise for Black Adam that I can't reveal, in terms of where we will see Black Adam being introduced."
We still don't have any casting for Shazam, but The Rock has indicated he wants Armie Hammer to land the role. Hammer has been trolling fans on Twitter about his possible role as Green Lantern, but that appears to be conjecture at this point. If the Rock was to appear in a DC film prior, it seems it would have to be Justice League. Since he will square off against Superman, none of the other films fit as they are standalone with Wonder Woman and Aquaman.
Could it be a credits scene possbily? We're all hyped up for Black Adam vs. Superman. What about you? Justice League hits theaters on November 17th.
