The Hercules star, who has long been linked to a role in a Warner Bros superhero blockbuster, has strongly suggested that he’ll play Shazam.
“He has the power of Superman,” Johnson said. “And it’s not the Green Lantern by the way. Believe me – Jon Stewart – he is a character who I wanted to play, but there was already a version of Green Lantern, and so now we’ve gone in a slightly different direction. But this character has the power of Superman. He can throw down.”
Johnson’s final clue alluded to “Shazam”, the magic word Billy Batson exclaims to get transformed into the costumed hero. “Just say the word,” The Rock teased. “That’s all I’m going to say.”
