Mark Strong doesn't fit my idea of Sivana, at all, but I think he's good enough to surprise me. Now I'm thinking of how cool he could have been as Lex Luthor, but BVS didn't deserve a cool Lex.

He was such a good choice for Sinestro in such an underwhelming movie, too. I really hope this fares a lot better. I've wanted to see a Shazam! movie for a long time, long before Johns' reboot which they'll probably base a lot of it on, and if this movie doesn't hit, I don't foresee second chances.

I'm more familiar with him being a politician. I can't help but wonder if this script was written with Back Atom in mind.
I'm more used to him as your classical mad scientist:

"Curses! Foiled Again!"

But it does kind of feel like they're trying to make up for not being able to use Adam in this.
Might Sivana be both a scientist and a would-be sorcerer in this?
That would be a...weird combination :sweat:.

EDIT: David F. Sandberg confirms those call sheets are inaccurate.

It wouldn't be any more strange than any other attempt in comics or movies to meld science and magic. However, I also hope that the description proves false.
