Our personal favorite and set to be released as a part of the DCEU ( DC Comics Extended Universe ), Dwayne Johnson has already been chosen to play Black Adam as the main adversary to superhero Shazam. This movie is not scheduled to be released until 2019, but why not already cast the guy who has the build of a real life “super-badass”.
