Fans Choose Villainy for (The) Rock

November 2, 2007


A little over a month ago, some of you may remember that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson asked fans which role he should take in Shazam: Shazam, or his enemy, Black Adam.

Fans, apparently, answered with the resounding cry of "Black Adam," to which Rock replied (in a strange Ren-faire voice for some reason), "I sayeth Black Adam as well," adding that he's meeting with director Pete Segal to talk about it.

So, while it looks like he's going go with the fans' choice and suit up in black and gold spandex, it should be noted that this isn't the first time The Rock has let others make important decisions for him. Let's remember, shall we?

Choice: Should The Rock's ubiquitous eyebrow raise get really annoying?

Decision-makers: Millions of high school-age wrestling fans attempting to replicate it.

Decision: Yes. Very much so.

Choice: Should The Mummy spin-off, The Scorpion King, be nearly unwatchable?

Decision-makers: Writers/director of The Scorpion King, common sense.

Decision: Obviously.

Choice: Should The Rock's forehead continue growing without regard to proportion to his face?

Decision-makers: Genetics, nature, his skull.

Decision: Definitely.

And who knows what choice he'll grant us next! I hope it's the gender of a child.
