Born and raised in California, Nathan has been a fiend for geeky pop culture for years. ESPECIALLY comic books and movies. Can't get enough. He also likes writing his own comic books (The Shrouded City) and drinking sparkling water. Maybe it shows we've grown as a society that nobody makes fun of him for making comic books... but he does get a lot of s**t for drinking sparkling water. Win some, lose some. If you feel like it, you can follow his twitter musings: @natethegreater

The Rock announced the casting on his twitter account early this morning:

As a huge fan of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, I cannot wait to see what he’ll do as Black Adam. The Rock seems to get a kick out of playing the bad guy, having been a heel version of himself on WWE, to his role in the movie Doom. No, I’m not saying Doom is a good movie, but The Rock was awesome in it. Which is his usual modus operandi.
As for the character Black Adam, in the DC Universe, he is the Egyptian Champion of the Wizard SHAZAM. But he was corrupted by the power and started craving more. Though the reasons for this thirst for power may be attributed to the murder of his family. Depending on what the writers of the movie want, Black Adam could be a great villain or an even greater Anti-Hero.
So what do you think of the casting? Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?
(And yes, I do regret that last sentence).
