Pro wrestler turned actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been rumored for a role in a DC Comics movie for some time, specifically either Captain Marvel or his nemesis, Black Adam, and he has shown little restraint in teasing this fact on the internet.

However, perhaps because the attention he's received simply hasn't been enough for the insatiable ego he proudly displayed during his years in the WWE, The Rock has reportedly taken to the streets to tease his upcoming role, with many of his friends declaring the constant teases obnoxious.
"We fucking get it," said one close friend of The Rock who appeared to be completely fed up. "You're gonna be in a Shazam movie."
"Look, I know he's excited for the role, and he should be," the friend told The Outhouse. "But Jesus Christ, just give it a rest already. You don't have to constantly talk about it. This is worse from the period between 1998 and 2005 when he would only ever refer to himself in the third person and kept talking about sticking everyday objects up people's asses."
Reportedly, The Rock has been going out of his way to work the rumored role into every casual conversation, to the great annoyance of everyone he knows. One acquaintance told The Outhouse about meeting the Rock for lunch with a group of friends and associates last week. "He was all like, 'The Rock is in the mood for a roast beef Shazamwich!' We all just groaned."
"The other day we met up at the gym, and he was wearing a red tracksuit with a lightning bolt in the middle," said another friend, rolling his eyes. "He kept pointing to it and saying 'eh? eh?' like a fucking asshole. I'm just trying to work out, man."
The Rock's zeal for teasing his DC movie role has even bled into the bedroom. "We were having sex last week," The Rock's girlfriend told us, "and we were really getting into a good rythym, you know, but then asked me to 'Say it! Say it! You know the word!' I asked him what he wanted me to say, and he told me: 'Shazam.' It really ruined the mood, and I'm probably going to have to break up with him."
The Outhouse reached out to The Rock for comment, but he blew off the question and used it as another opportunity to tease the role. "No no, The Rock ain't playin' Damien Wayne, jabronie, but I am playing... a Bat-son!" he told us, adding, "I'm still the Rock… of Eternity. Shazam!"
At press time, The Rock's friends were considering either an intervention or repeatedly kicking the Rock in his balls until he stops bringing up his fucking Shazam movie role.
