SHAZAM! (Future Captain Marvel film)



- Dwayne Johnson to Play Black Adam in New Line’s ‘Shazam,’ Darren Lemke To Script (EXCLUSIVE)

Though Dwayne Johnson hasn’t been shy about teasing his potential involvement in New Line Cinema’s “Shazam” movie, the superhero comicbook pic now looks closer to achieving lift-off.

Sources tell Variety that Darren Lemke is set to write the script with Johnson attached to star. Johnson will play Black Adam, who in recent issues of the DC comicbook, is more of an anti-hero trying to clear his name than a villain.

Johnson and Hiram Garcia are also producing.

“We Love Dwayne and have had nothing but success with him over the years,” said Toby Emmerich, President and COO of New Line. “When I look at Dwayne both off screen and on screen, he is such a larger than life character and it just made perfect sense to me that we put him in a DC comic movie. You look at these comic book characters and they have this certain swag and charisma that Dwayne carries with him where ever he is so that’s why this always made sense.”




There's been a decade or more of rumors and innuendos. All of that pales in comparison to what is being called a concrete confirmation. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has told the world - he is Black Adam! The Captain Marvel movie is finally happening!

SHAZAM!

RE: SHAZAM! (Future Captain Marvel film)

Looking forward to the movie with the Rock!

I have a quick question for DC fans; can Shazam absorb electricity or redirect it without being hurt by it?

... here's your Subzero, now plain zero.

Not something specific or traditional, but who knows these days?

RE: SHAZAM! (Future Captain Marvel film)

I have mixed feels on Dwayne.

Part of me wanted him to be Captain Marvel, I admit he looks more like Black Adam, but even though he has immense screen presence I'm not sure he can pull of an accent.

But the main reason I wanted him as Captain Marvel is because Cap is a child trapped in an Adults body..watch a few interviews with Dwayne and he litterally comes as a child trapped in an Adults body.

Still I hope he can pull it off, It'l be wierd seeing Black Adam being the most Jacked guy in the DCU.

Thanks to MINION for taking my Siginity!

Completely agree. I kinda worry that he doesn't have the acting chops to pull off a villain like Black Adam, who (by my limited understanding) wasn't your typical evil for the sake of evil type of villain and kinda had a tragic, anti-hero to him as well. I always kinda read him as like a non boy scout version of Superman who actually had the balls to take charge of things even when that meant people would get hurt.

The Rock has the build and charisma to pull off Captain Marvel perfectly but really only fits Black Adam with his facial structure. I hope to be pleasantly surprised but would be extremely bummed if this movie flopped.

The Rock was in The Scorpion King. He's pretty much got it covered.

RE: SHAZAM! (Future Captain Marvel film)

- Dwayne Jonhson's Black Adam Will Be "Ruthless" With "Wonderful Charm"

During a Twitter session with fans yesterday, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson teased what we might expect when he suits up to play DC Comics character Black Adam for Warner Bros.' 2019's "Shazam!" film. When asked if there were any of other superheroes or villains he'd like to play, he replied: "Can't wait to play BLACK ADAM. We'll find that anti-hero balance of ruthless rip your throat out [with] wonderful charm."

RE: SHAZAM! (Future Captain Marvel film)

- Exclusive: Dwayne Johnson talks Black Adam

Further down the road, after Fast & Furious 7, Johnson will be bringing his superhuman physique to the DC universe in Shazam!, as Black Adam, and he gave Total Film an exclusive insight into what to expect.

So, will Black Adam be an anti-hero then? “I think Black Adam is going to grow into becoming an anti-hero,” Johnson tells us in the new issue. “It’s all written within the spirit of respecting and paying homage to the comics. As we know, Black Adam started out as a slave. When he’s given the powers, he utilised them. Then in the wake of his powers, tragedy strikes, which turns his sentiment and tone in terms of psychology.”

And how, if at all, will Black Adam fit in with the wider DC universe? “It was all agreed that the worlds are all interconnected… One day you will see Black Adam go at it with Superman or Batman or any of the DC characters. But that said, there’s a great independence to Black Adam from the DC world, allowing us to inject, not only viciousness, but also winking humour.”

RE: SHAZAM! (Future Captain Marvel film)

- Dwayne Johnson Teases ‘Shazam!’ ‘May Happen a Little Earlier’ Than We Expect

Unveiled last fall, Warner Bros.’ ambitious slate of DC Comics-based films carved out April 2019 for “Shazam!,” which meant of course that fans who’ve long waited to see Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam will have to remain patient. However, the actor now suggests the wait may not be all that long.

Speaking with MTV Sunday at the 87th Academy Awards about “Shazam!” finally getting off the ground, Johnson rather cryptically said, “You know, it may happen a little earlier than what has been predicted.”

“The script is coming in, it’s great. The support from the studio has been great,” he continued. “And it is just a great opportunity especially with Black Adam where you can take a guy that starts off as bad guy turns into an anti-hero. We can make him vicious; a little bit of winking charm.”


Maybe Black Adam gets the game going early with some other playmates? Inspires Captain Marvel's return in Shazam proper?

RE: SHAZAM! (Future Captain Marvel film)

- The Rock Thinks Black Adam Could Join The Justice League

"He will become an anti-hero, but first, daddy's got to go to work," laughed the actor. He noted that a team-up with the world's greatest superheroes is in the cards moving forward. "I think so, and I think you always want to leave that creatively open – that he could join 'Justice League.' And I think that's the fun part about creating this character right now. Everybody involved from the studio to New Line to Warner Bros. as well to the writer and our producing partners, you definitely want to engage his heroic side, but that has to be earned.

"With the mythology of Black Adam starting off as a slave...when you start off as a slave, inherently there's things in your DNA that piss you off. That's the bottom line. We have to respect and pay homage to the true mythology, and the heroic side will come down the line."

RE: SHAZAM! (Future Captain Marvel film)

- 'Shazam!' Is Next DC Movie to Shoot

Shazam!, the story about a boy-turned-Earth’s mightiest mortal, looks to be the next DC Cinematic Universe movie that will go before cameras, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

David F. Sandberg, the filmmaker behind upcoming Annabelle: Creation, is directing the feature project that hails from Warner Bros.’s sister division, New Line. The project is looking to go before cameras in January or February 2018 with a likely release in 2019, according to sources.

Peter Safran, who worked with Sandberg on the Annabelle sequel and is also producing Aquaman, is in negotiations to board Shazam! as producer.


- Dwayne Johnson Won't Be in DC's 'Shazam!' Movie

Geoff Johns, the chief creative officer of DC and, with Jon Berg, architect of the DC Extended Universe, told Yahoo Movies on Thursday that Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam will be MIA from Shazam!

“We haven’t announced any casting yet,” Johns said. “But Dwayne isn’t going to be in this movie. He’s still doing Black Adam, but he won’t be in Shazam!”

Johnson and DC will be developing Black Adam concurrent with Shazam!, with the idea that the two will eventually face off onscreen.

Shazam! will be directed by David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation), with cameras rolling early next year for a 2019 release.

RE: SHAZAM! (Future Captain Marvel film)

- REPORT: Shazam Eyeing Cena, Sasse; Billy Batson Character Bio Revealed

Pre-production on Warner Bros.’ Shazam is underway, and so is the search for the titular superhero and his alter-ego Billy Batson. ThatHashtagShow reports the studio is zeroing in on an actor for Shazam himself and has also drafted a description for both Billy’s character and the overall film.

According to the report, Warner Bros. is eyeing WWE superstar John Cena and Galavant alum Joshua Sasse as frontrunners for the role of Shazam. As the report points out, Sasse isn’t as well known Cena, though he has appeared in television shows like No Tomorrow, Rogue and The Neighbors. Nevertheless, this would give Sasse the opportunity to truly define the role as a relative newcomer. On the other hand, Cena — who recently appeared in a comedic role for Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck and will star in the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee — brings with him an established fanbase that could become a potential audience for Shazam.


A Cena/Rock superhero showdown is a cute pitch, but come on.

RE: SHAZAM! (Future Captain Marvel film)

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

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.


Huh... It'll be interesting to see what he brings to the finished product. Doesn't immediately smell like a classic Captain Marvel choice, but you never know. Its not a conventional role to cast in the genre.

RE: SHAZAM! (Future Captain Marvel film)

- ‘Shazam': Mark Strong in Talks to Play Villain Doctor Sivana (Exclusive)



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

He’s known as Shazam’s archenemy and most frequent foe. In the most recent run of DC Comics’ the New 52 books, 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).

David Sandberg, the horror filmmaker behind “Lights Out” and “Annabelle: Creation,” will direct the film. Filming will begin in February 2018 for a likely 2019 release.


Could do a lot worse. Would be nice to see them age him up. The best Captain Marvel leans hard into the anachronisms. Reality need not apply.
