SOUNDBITE (English) Dwayne Johnson, actor: "I'm playing a DC character, so right now, so it is the story of Shazam, but I just can't clarify right now whether it's Shazam or Black Adam. We have been developing this for some time and I'm very excited about it. And I've just been a fan of anti-heroes for some time, I'll say that. And this particular one, I think that we are going to do it a great justice and I'm putting my heart and soul and my bones into this role, by the way. So I look forward to it. We're going to make the announcement very soon, we've just hired the writer, so as soon as we close this deal with business affairs we can make the announcement."Paramount Pictures3.

And we're doing it now with Batman and Superman. Of course we have Aquaman, we have Wonder Woman coming, so there is a lot coming down the pike. I've always been interested specifically in two characters, my entire career, they have been my two favorite ever since I was a kid, always, has been Green Lantern and Black Adam."Paramount Pictures7.
