The busiest man in showbiz might be getting another job.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has made no secret of his wish to play DC’s Black Adam, first mentioning the villain way back in 2008 and teasing fans with this Christmas message last year. At one stage there were rumours he may appear opposite his arch nemesis in Shazam or even in Justice League.
