Back at the start of this year, Dwayne Johnson let it be known he is in talks with Warner Bros. for a DC Comics comic book movie role.
Now speaking with Total Film, Johnson lets it be known they have been in talks for years about getting him to play the right part.
Lobo was on the table and one time, and Johnson even says he wanted to play Green Lantern John Stewart, but since the Green Lantern movie already came out, they are going in a different direction.
Johnson says the big announcement will be coming very soon (Comic-Con?), and teases the character has the power of Superman and adds with a big smile: "Just say one word."
As comic book fans known, when the boy named Billy Batson says the word "SHAZAM," he is transformed into the powerful superhero known as Captain Marvel (now simply referred to as Shazam in the comics).
It's possible Dwayne Johnson may have revealed he is playing Shazam, which is on the list of rumored WB DC movies.
Dwayne Johnson is also starring in the Hercules movie, which is out July 25th.
