 One of the many battles between Marvel and DC; who gets to nab all the good superhero actors.

I say Black Adam all the way.  No doubt he can play the hero, but the thing about Shazam, is that he is a child/teenager in the body of God.  So the awkwardness and naivete of Shazam is what is appealing about him.  Otherwise, he's just a Superman Clone.  The Rock is just to confident a person, that I can't see him pulling it off.  Him as Black Adam I can see.  He can definatly pull off the bad guy, half of his time in the WWE was being a smug ass.

Ha! I picture all the high execs in a room with a big chart listing all the actors, taking turns picking them like draft day.

 Eldogg- lol @ Draft day.

But i have to disagree about the Rock being able to play awkwardness/naivete. We all know he can be funny as hell, and he actually played that kind of role in ''Pain & Gain'' and pulled it off.

That seems like what it is. Sort like when Marvel and DC were nabbing writers and artists on exclusive contracts.

I agree with Eldogg ^^^^.  I can't see Johnson as Shazam, but I can DEFINITELY see him as Black Adam.

I kind of like the idea of him playing both characters, Teth Adam is himself a twisted version of Shazam/Captain Marvel...

Black Adam all the way. I think he would be amazing in the role.

Wiseguy 8/19/2014 3:39:35 PM

 I think The Rock would've been a perfect Black Adam based on looks more than acting. I think he can definitely capture the spirit of Capt. Marvel or Shazzam since that's probably the name their going with.

Thumbs up!!

No way they would keep the name in PC land, BLACK Adam.  But that's my vote.
