FanCast: DCEU’s Shazam

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).

    Oh, it’s good that you directed them to Our Supernatural World! That channel needs more activity.

    You do-gooder, you!

  • Duke

    I should introduce you to these SPN disqus fans then. You’d fit right in

  • Despotic Guillotine πŸ”ŽπŸ‘½πŸ”

    I love that show.

  • Duke

    I take it you’re a SPN fan? Ran into a bunch of disqus SPN fans yesterday. Helped them out with inviting users since their SPN websites went down unexpectedly.

  • Despotic Guillotine πŸ”ŽπŸ‘½πŸ”

    That could work.

  • Despotic Guillotine πŸ”ŽπŸ‘½πŸ”

    He says he doesn’t. Filming and p.r. conflicted with Supernatural, and he wasn’t going to do anything that messed with the show.

    But he did voice Jason Todd/Red Hood in Under the Red Hood.

  • Duke

    Lol wonder if he regrets that now.

  • Despotic Guillotine πŸ”ŽπŸ‘½πŸ”

    Useless trivial of the day: He was offered Captain America and turned it down.

  • Despotic Guillotine πŸ”ŽπŸ‘½πŸ”

    Lol.

  • Duke

    Agree to disagree!

  • Despotic Guillotine πŸ”ŽπŸ‘½πŸ”
  • Duke

    Hell NO!

  • sailor monsoon

    It’s funny but my first thought was jensen ackles

  • Despotic Guillotine πŸ”ŽπŸ‘½πŸ”

    Hell YES!

  • Duke

    Hell No!

  • Duke

    Now I recognize the name! He was Peggy’s love interest if I’m right.

  • SlamAdams

    He was in Dollhouse and Agent Carter.

  • Duke

    And I ask “who?”

  • SlamAdams

    Enver Gjokaj

  • Despotic Guillotine πŸ”ŽπŸ‘½πŸ”

    lol

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    That would be hilarious!

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    Hell Yes!

  • Kemosabe

    I don’t know who this ‘Dwayne Johnson’ is. Are you talking about The Rock?

  • Larry Version 3

    We all know Gambit will probably never get off of the ground though lol

  • Despotic Guillotine πŸ”ŽπŸ‘½πŸ”

    Dwayne Johnson needs to be Black Adam in this film. He can still have his own film as Black Adam.

    As for Shazam!, I vote this guy right here:

    The difference being Thanos and Cable are just supporting characters. Thanos will be done after A4 and Cable could maybe only appear once or twice after. Both Shazam and Gambit are franchise starters.

  • sailor monsoon

    Josh Brolin is attached to avengers and deadpool.
    Gambit ain’t getting made any time soon.

  • Duke

    Tatum is still attached to Gambit tho and I doubt Fox will let him waltz over to DC/WB at this stage.

  • sailor monsoon

    Is there honestly another pick besides channing tatum?
    There’s no way he’s not getting this.
    It might the only role he was born to play

  • Joe Newman

    Will from Stranger Things as Billy and Jon Hamm as Shazam.

  • Duke

    Another option (one which I don’t agree with) would be John Cena. He’s someone who definitely could go toe to toe with The Rock.

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    Matt Bomer!

  • I’ve always said Kellan Lutz, he has the perfect beady little eyes.
