For many years, Black superheroes have been dismissed as sidekicks, imitators of established white heroes, or are accused of having no role outside of blaxploitation film contexts. Yet the importance of a Storm, Luke Cage, Black Panther, or Jon Stewart as Green Lantern or Miles Morales as Spiderman cannot be understated. Their entry into comic books also served as entry to the hearts and imaginations of black children, confirming that they too can be superheroes and could one day save the world.

DWAYNE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON OFFICIALLY CONFIRMS “SHAZAM” ROLE!
After many a tease over the past few months Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has finally confirmed he will play a role in an upcoming DC Comics adaptation. Whether as Shazam or Black Adam the actor has apparently yet to decide.

Oh PLEASE let him be cast as Captain Marvel/Shazam so that racist white fanboys can lose their shit

While I agree that a mixed-race Shazam would be awesome, Black Adam is a billion times more awesome than Shazam and I hope he’s Black Adam.

He’s perfect for Black Adam.

The man is actually perfect for either role. He’s goofy enough to be a kid in a adults body like Shazam. And his physical appearance and sometimes serious attitude will work super well for Black Adam. So everyone wins either way.
