Dwayne Johnson Hints At DC Movie Role

Fast & Furious star looks set to play comic book hero Shazam on the big screen...

Dwayne Johnson has dropped a heavy hint about which DC Comics superhero he is set to play on the big screen.

The Hollywood star and WWE wrestler (aka The Rock) has teased Total Film with some of the deets about his forthcoming role in the expanding DC movie universe - and it seems he'll be wearing Shazam's red and gold costume.

"He has the power of Superman," Johnson started. "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."

However the real giveaway was his closing comment on the subject.

"Just say the word," he teased. "That's all I'm going to say."

In the DC comic books, Billy Batson transforms himself into Shazam by saying that word.

Johnson has recently been talking about his possible inclusion in the WWE Hall Of Fame.
