Dwayne Johnson Says SHAZAM Is Coming Sooner Than 2019

San Andreas star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson doesn't hesitate to express his excitement about playing Black Adam in Shazam every chance he gets, and in another interview, the wrestler turned actor reveals that he believes the movie will be released long before 2019...


Last year, Warner Bros. set a 2019 release date for Shazam, no doubt one of their most highly anticipated DC Comics adaptations. The four year wait feels like an eternity, but Dwayne Johnson has shared some very exciting news while promoting upcoming disaster movie San Andreas

According to the actor, we may not have to wait that long to see him play Black Adam, as he's quoted in the above video as saying: "No, I don't think it is going to be that far away. It's going to be earlier than that. I don't think 2019." This is great news, and hardly a surprise considering the fact that Warner Bros. don't seem to be anywhere near as organised as Marvel Studios.

It shouldn't be at all surprising to see some release dates shift as a result, and providing Johnson can clear his schedule, getting Shazam sooner than expected is far from bad news. Thoughts?
