It looks fun, humorous, and it has plenty of laughs. Check out the first trailer for SHAZAM!, below.

 Mark Strong

Things are progressing rather quickly for Shazam! Just days after the film confirmed Zachary Levi to play the title hero, there are reports that Mark Strong is in talks to play the film’s villain. Of course, as some of you know, it’s not going to be Black Adam, as Dwayne Johnson will be playing him in a standalone film.

According to reports, Strong is in talks to play Doctor Sivana, who has had run-ins with Shazam before. More on the story below.

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.

Shazam DC Comics Header Image

It’s only been a few hours since it was announced that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would play Black Adam in Shazam. While it was thought that this news meant that Shazam’s introduction might be included in Justice League, New Line’s Toby Emmerich has said that possibility is slim to none. The film will still have the DC brand name attached to it, but Shazam will be produced under New Line’s banner, which is actually a branch of WB. That being said, it is unlikely that the hero will be accepted into the DC Cinematic Universe.

Justice League Header Image

At first glance Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice looked like it was only going to be about the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel. But as we can see based on the subtitle, it’s going to be more than just about the two heroes. For one thing, Gal Gadot has a role as Wonder Woman, as does Ray Fisher who will play Victor Stone aka Cyborg. Given that Gadot is in a three-picture deal, it’s really no surprise that she will be getting her own movie as well as have a role in Justice League. But where does it all fit on the schedule? Dawn of Justice isn’t due out for another year and half, and what about the other heroes? Where do they fit into all of this.

Well a new rumor has popped up, and it reveals that not only does Warner Bros have a schedule laid out for the DC Cinematic Universe, but they have plans laid out until 2018. Sure that may not be as expansive as Marvel Studios who has plans up until 2018, but it is a start, and if successful, WB may be able to finally catch up with their rival. Hit the jump to see what the studio has planned for us.

Cover by Gary Frank
DC Comics
Release Date: October 1, 2013

Shazam! Vol. 1 is the New 52 reboot for Shazam. It takes us through the story of how the troublesome teen orphan Billy Batson got his powers, and his first battle with them. In this story, he has to deal with the 7 deadly sins, Black Adam, and Dr. Sivana’s behind the scenes work.

Geoff Johns’ writing is some of the best writing I have ever read in a comic book series. It is an incredible story, engaging the reader on so many levels. The character is fun and engaging, the plot is both funny and had true moments of tension. It was incredibly read.
