The Rock Prefers Black Adam to Captain Marvel!


The wrestler-turned-actor finally opts to take the role of Black Adam rather than Captain Marvel in New Line Cinema's "Shazam!"

Choice has been made and decision has been taken. Yes, The Rock aka Dwayne Johnson finally has fixed his mind on which character he will play in superhero flick "Shazam!" which New Line Cinema is currently developing.

Revealing his pick to IESB.net during a press junket for Richard Kelly-directed "Southland Tales", the former wrestler told the site that he has chosen the role of Black Adam over that of Captain Marvel for the project. The hunk was previously noticed to call on fans of the characters in an interview with MTV to help him select which one he should take.

"I think it's up to the fans, very specifically because they are passionate about the comic book, about the history and mythology [of the character]. They will be very vocal," so he said at that time.

As for the picked character, Black Adam was originally created for the premiere issue of Fawcett Comics in 1945 before getting re-introduced by DC Comics in the 1970s as Captain Marvel's most physically powerful foe. A previous appointee of the wizard Shazam, he is depicted as a powerful Arab man wearing a costume similar to Captain Marvel's, except that the red portions are black.
