Black Adam DC Comics

As Warner Bros. unite the various DC heroes for the DCEU, one hero’s spot on the superhero ensemble remained uncertain. It has only been a few years since we’ve heard anything about WB’s Shazam, but early reports say that he might not even be on the team. Since Dwayne Johnson accepted the role of Black Adam in 2014, the actor as called the character an anti-hero, which is contrary to how he’s normally depicted in the comics, which is to serve as a villain to the heroic Shazam.

Now there are reports that Black Adam and Shazam will be two separate films entirely. Not only that, but Black Adam will also appear in Shazam as well. More on the story below.

Suicide Squad Margot Robbie

Because it worked so well the first time – and I am not being sarcastic about that – Suicide Squad director David Ayer and star Margot Robbie are reuniting for another DCEU project.

While a Harley Quinn film has been in the works since the big screen character was so well-received, the two won’t be returning for a Suicide Squad 2 – at least not yet. Instead the pair reunite for a film which will see Harley as part of yet another ensemble, but an all female one. The film is called Gotham City Sirens. Check out more on this story below.
