Dwayne Johnson has long been rumored to be involved with DC Comics in an upcoming comic role. Recently, Johnson spoke about this possibility, and actually noted that he would have a big announcement soon about the role.
There’s a character out there that we’re going to announce soon. He has the power of Superman. 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. Just say the word. That’s all I’m going to say.
While it might be disappointing to rule out John Stewart, it does point to another hero. By just saying the word “Shazam”, DC Comics hero Captain Marvel has almost the same powers as Superman. The announcement could come as soon as Comic Con.
