The Rock has apparently agreed to play Black Adam in Shazam and the role/script is being tweaked to play to his strengths as we speak.

I can't think of a single comic-book character, villain or otherwise, that has had a better year than Black Adam. He's currently one of the most three-dimensional villains in all of comics.

I'm sure the film will capture none of this. But if we can at least get the limb-ripping, dictatorial Adam, I'm game. And I'm certain Rocky can pull it off.

I would argue that Black Adam was a better character when he was a face than his recent uber-heel turn.

And I would argue that as The Rock found his biggest box office success in The Game Plan, and SHAZAM is being geared as a family friendly superhero movie (since it's about a 12 year old boy who can become a superhero), we won't be seeing much if any of the Black Adam readers of 52 have come to love. The Rock's Black Adam certainly won't be ripping someone in half on national television, for instance.

However, I have to say The Rock is pretty inspired casting for Black Adam. He suits this role physically more than he would Captain Marvel, although The Game Plan proved him to be safe and kid-friendly. The other superhero character I would thought The Rock would be well suited for was Namor the Sub-Mariner, if that ever gets off the ground.

As for Captain Marvel's casting, I would say another kid-friendly WWE Superstar (currently rehabbing for the next year) would work pretty well for the Big Red Cheese: John Cena.

I think Rock could pull over either role, but look forward to him playing a villain for a change. Cap will be a tough casting decision, as it will be difficult to hold their own against Rock. Too bad Patrick Warburton isn't 10 years younger.

The last scene shows Magneto moving a chess piece with his powers, and the post-credit scene has Xavier waking up (admittedly in someone else's body). Could all of this be explained by saying the mutant cure in X3 was only temporary?
