Earlier today, when talking about revelations from The Rock that he’s playing Black Adam in Shazam, we wondered if either Captain Marvel / Shazam or Black Adam might be introduced in Batman v Superman or Justice League. Turns out that’s not likely to happen. While Shazam is being treated as a DC property, the film is being assembled by New Line rather than Warner Bros. As such, it will likely be outside the parameters of the Justice League story. Get the Shazam Justice League info we have below. Read More »

Dwayne Johnson has confirmed the role he’ll play in Shazam, and it isn’t the good guy. The actor tweeted a photo of the villain Black Adam attacking Shazam, along with a quote and text that clearly puts the Rock in the costume of Black Adam. But he probably won’t be an out-and-out bad guy, as word is the film will follow the more recent conception of the character, which casts him as a militant and somewhat reformed anti-hero who struggles to clear his name from past villainous deeds.

UPDATE: ScreenCrush points out these domains were actually registered over 10 years ago.
Though Zack Snyder wowed San Diego Comic-Con earlier this summer with footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans were expecting something else. They were expecting an outline of what Warner Bros. has in store for their DC Comics movies over the next few years. Instead, a version of that announcement came a few weeks later when the company announced release dates for nine upcoming DC Comics movies. Unfortunately, those dates were all for untitled films.
If we’re to believe the wonderful world of domain registration, those titles should be coming soon. Warner Bros. just registered websites for four DC Comics movies we’re all been pretty sure are coming: Justice League, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Shazam. Read More »

The biggest news this week came from Warner Bros, who gave release dates to ten upcoming DC Comics movies through 2020. Nine of those are untitled and the first, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, will be out March 25, 2016. While untitled, we have a pretty good idea what a few of those movies are going to be. Justice League is a lock. Wonder Woman has a good shot. Shazam is a strong possibility and a few others.
Fortunately Dan Fellman, Warner Bros.’ president of domestic distribution, spoke to Entertainment Weekly and said some of the titles will officially be announced later this month. He also commented on the seemingly strange strategy of opening a massive blockbuster in March and teased that Justice League might follow Dawn of Justice quickly.
