Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was officially announced as Black Adam in 2014, and since then fans have been wondering who would play Shazam. He needs someone to fight with, after all!
In a new interview with We Got This Covered, The Rock threw out a name for the very first time. His pick? Armie Hammer, who played the Lone Ranger in the 2013 movie.
“I’m going to throw one name out here, and I want to see how the fans will react to this. A guy who I met, I went ‘Wow! That guy is such a cool guy! He is a lot bigger than I thought he would be’ and when I walked away, I remember telling our producer, who I have worked with for a long time, we both looked at each other and was like ‘Possibly Shazam?’ and we went ‘Yes’. I’m not even going to say his name, I’m just going to say Lone Ranger.”
Check out The Rock’s full response in the video below.
Armie Hammer has been teasing some kind of involvement with the DC Films universe since last December. Fans have speculated that he could be anyone from Green Lantern to Nightwing… but never Shazam. What do you think of The Rock’s choice for that role? Let me know in the comments section below!
