MTV's Josh Horowitz caught up with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at the Academy Awards and asked him about his upcoming super-villain role as Black Adam in Shazam. (Which you can check out below!)
We're not supposed to see Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the DC cinematic universe until 2019, but when MTV's Josh Horowitz brings up how far away the film is The Rock cuts him off, saying this:
"You know, it may happen a little earlier than what has been predicted," Johnson told Horowitz.
"The script is coming in, it's great. The support from the studio has been great. And it is just a great opportunity especially with Black Adam where you can take a guy that starts off as bad guy turns into an anti-hero. We can make him vicious; a little bit of winking charm." He added.
When he was further asked who will playing Billy Batson aka Shazam The Rock said "We don't know yet".
Shazam is expected to be released in April 5, 2019.
