LOL, nah he really shouldn't.

#3 Posted by Amegashita (3601 posts) - - Show Bio

  I doubt he could play a good Black Adam.

#4 Posted by Achilles. (3847 posts) - - Show Bio

Their are rumors spreading that Dwayne Johnson is plating Adam 
 
Here is a pic of him as black adam

He's got a good look for him.
#6 Posted by Shadowdoggy (3815 posts) - - Show Bio

he COULD 
he definitely looks the part 
but I don't think so 
Dwayne doesn't seem to have that menacing thing about him 
he's so smiley! 
he'd be a GREAT Captain Marvel though 
I think that's a better role for him: superhero who is really a kid inside and wants to be the people's hero 
*big cheesy smile!*

Goldberg has the looks for Kratos, doesn't mean he can play him well. I've seen that picture multiple times along with others. I just don't see him pulling it off and I'm a huge fan of The Rock.

@Shadowdoggy:  He most definitely shouldn't play Captain Marvel.  Not now, not ever.

are they even still planning on making this Captain Marvel / Shazam movie ?

@Amegashita:
really?  
Captain Marvel always seemed like a walking action figure to me 
and that's the Rock 
but I can see that you feel strongly about this 
so I will digress and bow to you, good sir or madam as the case may be

think so

@Shadowdoggy:  I just don't think he would make a good Captain Marvel.  He doesn't have the look of Billy, and I don't see him pulling off the Billy Batson persona, if you know what I mean.
 
  Also, I'm a guy.

@Amegashita:
oh, definitely not for Billy 
I'd go the whole little kid Billy route in a hearbeat 
Dwayne's only good as the superheroic part of him 
I just want to hear him scream "SHA-ZAM!"

From my limited exposure to Black Adam he is similar to The Scorpion King but angrier. Both ancient warriors who got superhuman powers/fighting skills.
I like the idea.
 Also in talks for: Race Bannon?!?! lol

When asked about his interest in portraying characters that seem to fit his personality and build, such as Luke Cage, Namor, the Martian Manhunter or Captain Marvel, he said, "We've been active in talking to these different companies and these different studios about making that happen and finding what makes sense. There's so much there and so much untapped. I'm sure it will happened. We've worked to develop good relationships with the studios heads and executives."

Johnson hasn't forgotten his appeal for family oriented films, though. He is still pursuing the role of Race Bannon in the future Jonny Quest film, "Oh, absolutely, we're talking about that, I love 'Jonny Quest.'"

 Is cooking? :P

@Shadowdoggy:  Lol, it would be something to hear him scream "SHA-ZAM!"  Guess we'll never know unless it happens.  It would probably depend on how the Captain Marvel 30min movie does.

@Amegashita:
I suppose 
we get movies like Jonah Hex and Elektra  
but Captain Marvel.....nooooooo! 
no wonder the market is getting so oversaturated 
soon, no one will want to see superhero movies at all  
and we'll have to wait 15 years until anyone even DARES attempt to make, market and sell one

he's cooking....that guy, right there, whoever he is

@Shadowdoggy:  Well, when comic companies don't mind selling the characters to any director willing to pay, you never really get the chance to know if the director is good or not until after the movie comes out.  And by then it's a little to late to undo the damage that had been done.

@Amegashita:
agreed 
but as sad as it sounds, most of the scripts are doomed from the start IMO 
no director, no matter how good, could have improved on the basic idea, script and story of.... 
X3 
the first Hulk movie 
Elektra 
FF:Rise of the Silver Surfer 
Jonah Hex 
The Last Airbender 
Ghost Rider 
Superman Returns 
Batman and Robin 
Batman Forever 
etc, without having to totally change the plot as he went along

@Shadowdoggy:  A lot of the time its just some unknown director (?) who understands nothing about the character and mistakes the word Superhero for being an open gateway to lots of action and no plot.  It's probably easier to put in a lot of action scenes that require very little thinking ability than it is to formulate a good story and develop characters.  What kind of two bit director would take the time to do that? 
 
  Also you forgot Catwoman in your list.

@Amegashita:
good point 
and yes, I did forget Catwoman 
it has been my mission in life to forget that film since the day I saw it

If it was right after WWE maybe but this late in the game HELL NO
#26 Posted by rayn1984 (187 posts) - - Show Bio

isn't the production canceled already?

#27 Posted by Roldan (241 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd rather see someone like Oded Fehr or Arnold Vosloo as Black Adam.

#28 Posted by longbowhunter (6772 posts) - - Show Bio

The Rock shouldnt even act.
#29 Posted by jobbernos (1420 posts) - - Show Bio

the rock cant act.

#30 Posted by baron2011 (1151 posts) - - Show Bio

yep because the rock is a good actor

#31 Posted by TeamUnitedNerds (402 posts) - - Show Bio

He looks like him, but I don't like him as an actor. I mean, I think that Christopher Eccleston looks a lot like him, but I don't think that he should play him

#32 Posted by haydenclaireheroes (8884 posts) - - Show Bio

I think he looks the part, but I don't know if you could play the part

#33 Posted by evilvegeta74 (4521 posts) - - Show Bio

He could play him or Shazam!
