    Well, he does seem to be spearheading this project quite a bit :sweat:.

    Though the more I hear about this movie, the more I keep expecting it to be renamed "Black Adam" :rolleyes2:.

    At this point, it seems like WB puts stuff into production and if creative differences arise they just move onto the next movie.

    Henry Gadyen confirmed he's onboard as a writer. He did the screenplay for the "Earth to Echo" movie a few years back.

    I guess the villain is likely to become Dr. Sivana with his son and daughter. If it's good and there's a sequel, maybe it could use the Monster Society of Evil.

    I hope it's just Sivana given Adam is getting his own movie so he won't need to hog that much screentime in Billy's movie :sweat:.

    A horror director wouldn't be my first choice to helm a Shazam movie, but I've been surprised before ;).

    2/17: Well, he's a hot young director, WB doesn't care.

    I like Armie, so I think it's an interesting choice, but the guy has had the worst box office luck.

    Armie Hammer was cast as Batman in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal, so this does not sound like the worst idea ever. Hammer could work as Captain Mar...uh...Shazam.

    Yeah, he seems to have been on DC's spotlight for awhile. So, I have no real prob with him.

    Well, given how involved Johnson is in production and as a creative force, this probably has a good chance to actually happen :rolleyes2:.

    That's a good point. I figured another wrestler who would have that physique. But on second thought, that sort of thing doesn't matter much now in casting.

    If Zack Snyder is producing, he'll probably have them hit the gym anyway.

    Hopefully that means they start moving on casting, particularly for the actual main character :p.
