Dwayne Johnson Wants Armie Hammer to Play Shazam in the DCEU

Share

Just yesterday, for instance, the actor known as "franchise viagra" around Hollywood revealed who his pick is to play Shazam, and it's none other than Armie Hammer. A guy who I met, I went "Wow!"

"I'm going to throw one name out here, and I want to see how the fans will react to this".

When asked if fans can expect Black Adam to go toe-to-toe with Superman, Johnson playfully remarked: "One fine day, that's coming, that's in the cards". Artist extraordinaire BossLogic gave fans a sleek Shazam design with Armie Hammer as the star.

"It's definitely going to happen, sure", he said confirming a solo movie for the arch-nemesis of Shazam in the line-up.

He is of course referring to Hammer, who starred in 2013's The Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp.

In the previous fan-casts, Hammer has been included as a good choice for Shazam. He is taller than Johnson, which would make him look good when he stands next to the wrestler turned actor. While promoting his latest film, Baywatch, Johnson teased a potential early debut for the classic DC Comics villain during an interview with Fandango.

National Hockey League playoffs: Blues win to tie series
Talbot was stellar in Game 2 with 39 saves, but the Ducks got to him early scoring on two of their first three shots of the game. Another missed chance later in the period left the Blues with just two power play goals in 19 chances so far in the playoffs.

But since now, he is not at all in a superhero shape, he will have to beef up should he be chosen for the role. The Rock tends to get a lot of creative control over whatever project he's involved in, so if he thinks Hammer would be a ideal fit for Shazam, then you can bet that the studio's listening closely.

For a while now, he's been linked to a role in Warner Bros.' budding cinematic universe and while many thought it was Green Lantern, the popular opinion seems to have now changed thanks to Johnson's comments. Furthermore, he also revealed that he has had "great conversations with Geoff Johns and everyone over at DC".

Hammer is a very solid actor (his work in the upcoming drama Call Me by Your Name is being touted as Oscar material), not to mention a tall, fairly strapping guy, and he's got the kind of looks that could easily land him a superhero role (again).
