We’ve known for some time now that Dwayne Johnson is attached to a DC Comics movie, which the actor all but said was Shazam a few weeks ago, but now it seems Johnson has yet to make a crucial decision – which character he’s going to play.

Speaking with The Associated Press, Johnson revealed that has still can’t decide between playing the alter ego of Billy Batson, Shazam, or his arch-enemy, Black Adam. Johnson has previously mentioned¬†that Black Adam is one of his favorite characters from the DCU, but perhaps Warner Bros. doesn’t want to see Johnson in the antagonist role for a film that could potentially be a huge family hit.

Rest assured though that whichever character Johnson takes on in the film, he says fans won’t be disappointed:¬†“I am putting my heart and soul and my bones into this role.”

A rumor back in June pointed toward a Shazam film opening in 2016 along with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and though there is a DC based film set for release August 5 of that year, it hasn’t been confirmed as being Shazam. Check back her for more info on the film as we learn it.
