Warner Bros. Sets Release Date For 'Shazam!'

Warner Bros. Sets Release Date For 'Shazam!'”

Deadline reports that Warner Bros. announced the release date for Shazam! The DCEU entry directed by Annabelle: Creation and Lights Out director David F. Sandberg adapts the comic about a young boy who has the power to turn into an adult superhero. Disney Channel star Asher Angel (Andi Mack) will play the young version of Batson. Grace Fulton, Cooper Andrews, Jack Dylan Grazer, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand and Faithe Herman are also on board, with Mark Strong in talks for the role of the villainous Doctor Sivana, a frequent foe of Shazam who first appeared opposite the superhero in the pages of Whiz Comics back in 1940. Shazam! is the outlier, but has potential.

Levi recently said the movie will be like a cross between Superman and and the Tom Hanks body-swap comedy Big. In 2014, New Line president Toby Emmerich told Entertainment Weekly that Shazam would "a tone unto itself", and added: "It's a DC comic, but it's not a Justice League character, and it's not a Marvel comic". Emmerich then went on to say that Shazam!

Originally, the film was set to star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Shazam's classic counterpart Black Adam.

With Aquaman hitting theaters on December 21 of this year, this makes the time in between each film around three-and-a-half months - which isn't half bad considering we had virtually no information about the DC slate past 2018. "I get to be a superhero that's excited about being a superhero, and I think that's refreshing", he said. "So yeah, those guys are gonna do great with that". Filming will likely be underway soon if they're planning to hit an April 2019 release date.
