Dwayne Johnson is currently promoting Furious 7, which comes out in theaters this week. During an interview with Digital Spy, he talks about why he picked the part of Black Adam over the role of Shazam.

“Because I felt ultimately, and this is with all due respect to Shazam/Billy Batson, it’s a mythology that I love,” said Johnson. “It’s been with me for almost ten years now. What made me choose Black Adam? I just felt Black Adam was inherently more interesting to me because I felt there were more layers to Black Adam starting out as a slave and then ultimately becoming the anti-hero who we enjoy today.”
