Dwayne Johnson has confirmed he is to play the role of Black Adam in the upcoming 'Shazam' movie.
DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON is to play Black Adam in Shazam.
The actor suggested last month that he will play a starring role in the eagerly-awaited film, but refused to confirm which of the characters he would play.
However, he's ended the speculation by writing on Twitter: '''Kneel at his feet or get crushed by his boot.' My honour to become.. #BlackAdam #TheAntiHero #DCComics (sic)''
The character of Black Adam - who was created by cartoonists Otto Binder and CC Beck in 1945 - is an archaeologist who is transformed into a powerful ancient Egyptian.
The role will see Johnson play the part of Shazam's greatest adversary.
Johnson, 42, revealed in a Twitter Q&A session earlier this year that he met with Warner Bros. to discuss starring in a movie based on a DC Comics property.
He tweeted at the time: ''We just had a big meeting w/ Warner Bros CEO re: @DCComics 2014 we will partner up and create the cool bad assery. #RockTalk (sic)''
'Shazam' is set to be released in 2016.
The star also recently appeared in the action movie 'Hercules', in which he portrayed the titular leader.
