The DC Extended Universe has a Shazam film in development. It is set for a 2019 release with David F. Sandberg as it’s director. Dwayne Johnson was originally supposed to appear as Black Adam in the film, but has since been saved for his own solo outing.
We’ve heard names like Alan Ritchson, Tom Welling, and Armie Hammer get thrown around as possibilities for the hero. But now it’s time for you to FanCast the role. Who do you want to see go toe-to-toe with the Rock’s Black Adam?
My pick: Armie Hammer
The guy would make a good Shazam (or Green Lantern, his other rumored role), but really I want Hammer in a DCEU film just so we can get than banter back between Hammer and Henry Cavill (Superman).
