Back in October Warner Bros. unveiled the awesome slate of upcoming DC movies and dated SHAZAM! for April 2019. That's a long wait for any movie, and when you have a bright star already attached, the one and only Dwayne Johnson, maybe moving things along a little quicker wouldn't hurt. That’s what Johnson suggested recently at the Academy Awards when he was asked about the movie. And just like Arnold talking about TERMINATOR sequels, this of course is not official until the studio says so.

Here’s what Johnson said to MTV:

“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, and it’s just a great opportunity especially with Black Adam where you can take a guy who starts off as a bad guy, turns into an anti-hero, we can make him vicious, a little bit of winking charm.”

Well that sounds promising, right? Thinks are moving along nicely with SHAZAM! so it would be nice to get the movie sooner than initially slated, a rare treat in Hollywood. Of course, other movies were set around that movies release, so some shuffling may have to take place, but that’s not rare. Now if only we knew how well THE FLASH was doing, are things moving fast there as well? Are obvious puns just as bad as subtle ones?

Here’s the video if you want to see how a suit should fit:

He turns into an antihero? Not because Dwayne's ego needs to be more than just a villain, right? I don't know the character that well, I think I've seen him both as a bloodthirsty maniac and at other times somehow working together with the good guys? It could be right to go that way, but they better not be messing up this one just because Dwayne doesn't want to be the one who loses in the end.

It's kind of off putting that this is becoming more about Black Adam than about Captain Marvel. I get that BA has been cast so Dwayne Johnson has the advantage of pitching the movie(and his role) every chance he gets but I'd like to know more about what they're doing with Captain Marvel given that he's the protagonist and all...

I don't think the movie will actually turn out that way. Once we get closer to the release date (4 years away...) we'll see the focus shift to Captain Marvel. Honestly I think the only reason they cast Dwayne Johnson so early is because he's PERFECT for black adam, and with the F+F franchise ending it was only a matter of time he was picked up by a superhero franchise, whether it was Marvel, Sony, or Fox.

Both Capt Marvels be coming

Just realized how close the Marvel and DC Captain Marvels release dates are. First comes Ms Marvel.

Funny how that whole Captain Marvel battle of ownership that happened in the comics is going to happen similarly again here. I think having Black Adam as a more centric character will help that. And calling the movie Shazam of course.

What I really want to know is whether Dr. Sivana will make an appearance. Also, who will play The Big Red Cheese?

Very excited to see what he brings to the role and the impact his character will have in the DCU.

Would love to see a fight scene between him, Superman, and Aquaman.
