Shazam Villian And Plot Revealed

Published

on

New Line and Warner Bros have officially announced the start of production for Shazam!  

In October Thor actor Zachery Levi was cast in the lead role as Shazam. Originally Dwayne Johnson was onboard to play the main villain Black Adam, but it now rumored to only be a small character introduction. Instead, Mark Strong has been brought on to be the main baddie Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

The studio has also released the official synopsis for the film.

“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).”

Shazam! Also stars Mark Strong as the villainous Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, IT breakout Jack Dylan Grazer as Billy’s best friend and “ultimate superhero enthusiast,” alongside Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Ron Cephas Jones as the Wizard.

Shazam! is set for release on April 5, 2019

Lebron James’ Space Jam Sequel Officially Happening

Published

on

The long-rumored Space Jam sequel finally has been greenlit.

Lebron James will star and produce the film with Black Panther director Ryan Coogler. Warner Bros has the film slated for a 2019 release.

“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” says James, “It’s so much bigger. I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams. And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people.”

No word yet on other NBA stars joining the cast.

Michael B. Jordan Says Creed II Is About More Than Revenge

Published

on

Michael B. Jordan is ready to entire the ring again in Creed II.

In the sequel, Adonis Creed will go toe to toe against the son of Ivan Drago. Jordan spoke about Victor Drago’s motivation in the film.

“Victor’s storyline is very layered,” Jordan told the Toronto Sun. “The two guys are similar in a lot of ways…Adonis feels, naturally, a certain animosity towards Viktor and Ivan, and then there are other themes in there: the maturity of growth, the importance of family, of legacy, is what makes Creed so special. It’s not just about revenge.”

When asked if he would be willing to carry on as Adonis Creed for four decades, similar to Stallone, Jordan said he’s definitely up for it.

“If I’m lucky. I want to keep making them as long as they’re good,” he said. “I always want to keep my finger on the pulse. Forty two years, I mean, who knows?”

Captain Marvel: Watch The First Trailer

Published

on

Marvel finally released trailer for Captain Marvel.

Brie Larson stars as Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot who gains superpowers after her DNA is fused with that of an alien following an accident, in the 1990s-set Captain Marvel. It will be the first Marvel solo film to focus on a female character.

Larson spoke to EW about what attracted her to the character. “She can’t help but be herself,” Larson tells EW. “She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face. She’s also quick to jump to things, which makes her amazing in battle because she’s the first one out there and doesn’t always wait for orders. But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw.”

Captain Marvel flys into theaters March 6, 2019.
