Shazam / Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson)
#1
So this is happening for realzies now. A Shazam film. Dwayne Johnson has finally decided which role he'd rather play, and it's Black Adam, which leaves the role of Shazam open. I've heard Jon Hamm's name tossed around in comment sections and I think that'd be a cool choice. However, this article, particularly the quotes, is a bit worrisome concerning the film's place in the DCU and the film's overall quality.

Quote:The Shazam project will be produced by New Line, a subsidiary of Warner Bros. proper, and when New Line president Toby Emmerich gets on the phone to EW, he makes it clear that the film will be a different kind of superhero movie. “It feels to me like Shazam will have a tone unto itself,” he explains. “It’s a DC comic, but it’s not a Justice League character, and it’s not a Marvel comic. The tone and the feeling of the movie will be different from the other range of comic book movies.”

Does that mean it's not part of the DCU/Justice League universe? Or just that he won't show up in Justice League/Man of Steel 2/ BS: Dawn of Just Us? I bet the tone and the feeling will be exactly the same as the other DC comic book movies from the past ten years. :x

I am so happy it went this route, Johnson looks just like Black Adam .... I think everyone was dissatisfied with him playing Shazam.
