Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Confirms Shazam Role?

The Rock keeps dropping not so subtle hints that he's playing Shazam in an upcoming DC Comics superhero movie.

Now he's just toying with us. Dwayne Johnson is all but certainly playing Captain Marvel (athough these days, DC Comics just calls him Shazam) in a Shazam movie for Warner Bros. if his latest tweet is any indication. Unless, of course, he's playing Black Adam.

And then there's always the chance that, like he did with the infamous #JohnStewartCanStillWhoopSuperman'sAss tweet from several months back, that the Rock is just stirring the pot. Probably not, though.

Between this and his other recent comments, it's looking pretty likely. See for yourself.

An official confirmation and date of release will most likely come at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con.
