Dwayne Johnson Talks Casting Process For SHAZAM plus Script Update

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Furious 7) talks more here about how work is progressing on Shazam, offering an update on the current status of the script and whether or not they’re any closer to casting the movie’s titular character.

Talking to MTV News to promote the release of Furious 7, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was asked how work is progressing on the highly anticipated DC Comics movie which is currently scheduled to be released in 2019. “No, we haven’t picked a Shazam yet, and we have been working on the script. Half the scripts [have] already come in. Fantastic, very excited about it. And what I’m really excited about is — because, again, I’ve lived with this character, and this opportunity for almost 10 years now, so it’s like, in my DNA! I’m like a little kid, and it’s the opportunity to create his journey, but that journey has to start out properly.” The actor then went on to talk more about his portrayal of his villainous character. “And starting off properly is [Black Adam] not being a hero. That’s got to be earned, so he starts off as a slave. And he’s pissed off, and people are going to pay. But eventually down the line he’ll become an anti-hero.”
