Dwyne Johnson has revealed that he will play a leading role in Shazam.

The action star told USA Today that he will be starring in the new DC Comics movie, but he hasn't decided whether he will play the titular character or his enemy Black Adam.

Whichever part he takes on, The Rock said: "I am putting my heart and soul and my bones into this role."

Shazam is an orphan who can morph into an adult superhero simply by saying his own name, while Black Adam is a warrior who clashes with Shazam in his quest for world power.

Shazam is set to be released in 2016.
