So if you haven't heard The Rock is confirmed to play Black Adam in the upcoming "Shazam" movie. Black Adam is the arch nemesis of Shazam and possesses super-strength that even The Hulk can't compete with, as shown below.

The Rock is the closest thing to a Demi God humanity will ever know so it's no surprise he was chosen for the role. If you doubt his super-human abilities I highly suggest you watch Hercules and The Scorpion King STAT.

The news of his new role got the guys over at Prima Games thinking, what video game superheroes could The Rock play?


Commander Shepard (Mass Effect)

Should EA choose to bring Mass Effect to theaters, Dwayne Johnson is at the top of our list to play the lead. Every Mass Effect fan knows default Shepard's face; BioWare based the character's appearance on this guy's handsome mug. One of the best things about the Commander, though, is the fact that players are free to alter his appearance however they see fit, even switching him female. Multiple interpretations of Shepard allow The Rock to easily slip into this role. He'd kick alien butt, have a commanding screen presence and wouldn't have much trouble (if at all) with a little romance with his able bodied crewmates.



Chris Redfield (Resident Evil)


In the interest of millions... and millions of Resident Evil fanatics across the globe, Capcom needs to reboot its survival horror franchise, especially when it comes to movies. Milla Jovovich did a respectable job blasting zombies and nasty mutants in five RE films with yet another on the way. Now it's time for a different type of flick with a brand-new cast, and quite frankly, The Rock is a perfect fit as Chris Redfield. Not in 1996 mind you, back when the S.T.A.R.S. member resembled an average guy. Fast forward to Resident Evil 5 and he packed on what, 30 pounds of muscle? The guy is super jacked beyond belief and so is The Rock. Not only that, but we've already seen him wield multiple weapons in his action films, from DOOM to the Fast & Furious movies. Dwayne Johnson plus zombies is a huge win, and the type of Hollywood star power that would make casuals take notice of a Resident Evil film once again. On the flip side, he might make a good Albert Wesker in the obvious villain role.



B.J. Blazkowicz (Wolfenstein)


OK, this one may require some backstory to pull off (B.J.'s dad is Polish, we swear), but come on. We wouldn't mind seeing The Rock slaughter Nazis in some alternate post World War 2 reality, similar to Bethesda's reboot, The New Order. Hit the Nazis Reich where it hurts. Bad, we know.
