Re: Shazam! (2019)

Cena isn't right for the part.

And the other actor, haven't seen enough of him to justify the casting.

Re: Shazam! (2019)

This role was meant for Channing Tatum for sure.

Re: Shazam! (2019)

Please god no

I hope they get a real actor for the role. Cena/Rock a third time is an even bigger turnoff.

DC's 'Shazam!' to Star Zachary Levi (Exclusive)



Zachary Levi is going to be Earth's mightiest mortal.

The actor will star in the DC comic book adaptation Shazam!, which follows a boy named Billy Batson, who can transform into an adult superhero by uttering the magic word "Shazam!" The name is an acronym of the ancient world gods and historical figures Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles and Mercury, from which the big Batson derives his heroic attributes when in adult form.

David F. Sandberg is directing Shazam! for New Line. The studio is high on Sandberg and sees him as a homegrown talent after putting out his first feature Lights Out in 2016, and releasing the director's Annabelle: Creation, the latest installment of The Conjuring universe. The $15 million horror sequel has earned a big $303 million worldwide since opening in August.

Sandberg is directing Shazam! from a screenplay by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. Annabelle: Creation producer Peter Safran is reuniting with Sandberg for the film, and is also producing DC's Aquaman for Warner Bros.

This is a big move for New Line and Levi, who is known for comedic roles, and starred in NBC's hit spy-comedy series Chuck from 2007-2012. He also has superhero credentials and can be seen next week in Marvel Studios' Thor: Ragnarok as Fandral, one of Thor's companions. He also recently appeared in NBC's Heroes Reborn and the network's Eva Longoria comedy Telenovela.

Other actors in the mix for the role in the last few months have included John Cena, who met with the director, and more recently Derek Theler (star of ABC Family's Baby Daddy), Zane Holtz (From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series), Billy Magnussen, and Jake McDorman, the star of TV's Limitless.

Heat Vision first reported in July that Shazam! will be the next DC Cinematic Universe movie to film, ahead of the Flashpoint, Joss Whedon's Batgirl and the Suicide Squad sequel, which recently attached Accountant director Gavin O’Connor. No release date for Shazam! is set but New Line is eying a February 2018 start in Toronto.

The film is being developed concurrently with a film focusing on Shazam villain Black Adam to star Dwayne Johnson.

You could not live with your own failure. Where did that bring you? Back to me.

I'll be honest, I've never seen him in anything, so I'm not qualified to have an opinion. I just hope he looks the part.

Re: Shazam! (2019)

I have not seen him in anything but he does not look big enough to be shazam. Hopefully he bulks up a good amount.

Mark Strong is in talks to play DC Comics villain Doctor Sivana in New Line’s “Shazam,” TheWrap has exclusively learned.

Strong is no stranger to DC as the actor has previously play villain Sinestro in 2011’s “Green Lantern” opposite then Green Lantern Ryan Reynolds.

Known as Shazam’s archenemy and most frequent foe, in 2009, Doctor Sivana was ranked as IGN’s 82nd Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time. In the most recent run of DC Comics the New 52 that “Shazam,” is loosely based on, Sivana is depicted as a respected scientist desperate to save his family from an unknown plight. With science having failed him, he turns to magic. Doctor Sivana’s team finds what he believes to be the tomb of Black Adam; while attempting to open it, the scientist is half-blinded by magical lightning to the face (which has the side-effect of letting him see magic).

@lolomanolo you seem to like Shazam and know a good amount about him. Is Doctor Sivana a good villain?

Their dynamic is pretty similar to Superman/Lex, brain versus brawn, but Sivana is more of a mad scientist type. One of his henchman was responsible for the death of Billy Batson's archaeologist parents at one time, but I'm not sure if that's still canon. I didn't read any New 52 Shazam, so I'm not sure what changes, if any, were made to the character.

Asher Angel, one of the leads on Disney Channel’s Andi Mack, has snagged the role of Billy Batson opposite Zachary Levi in New Line’s DC superhero movie Shazam!

The project is casting up as it heads toward a production start in early 2018, with Mark Strong already in talks to play the villain and Grace Fulton in line for a lead.

The DC Entertainment superhero story centers on a boy named Billy Batson who can transform into an adult superhero by uttering the magic word "Shazam!" The name is an acronym of the ancient world gods and historical figures Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles and Mercury, from which Batson derives his heroic attributes when in adult form. Levi is starring as Batson’s alter ego, the adult hero known as Captain Marvel.

David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation) is directing Shazam! from a screenplay by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke.

The Batson role is a big break for Angel, who plays Jonah Beck, the love interest for tween girl Mack on Disney’s Andi Mack. He has had a handful of appearances in TV and shorts, and recently wrapped his feature debut with an indie titled On Pointe.
