In the lists of films that have been circulating around DC Comics character movie adaptions, Shazam has now officially started moving forward.

It has long been speculated that Dwayne Johnson’s would be attached to the movie, and he recently confirmed via his Twitter feed that in fact this is true. What we did miss though was the fact that he would not be picking up the title role of Shazam, but would in fact be playing the anti hero Black Adam.

Toby Emmerich chief of New Line Cinema said about the fourth coming movie, “It feels to me like Shazam will have a tone unto itself”, he told EW. “It’s a DC comic, but it’s not a Justice League character, and it’s not a Marvel comic. The tone and the feeling of the movie will be difference from the other range of comic book movies”.

It has also been confirmed that Darren Lemke will be putting together the first screenplay adaption for the movie, Lemke is probably best know for his work on ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’ and ‘Shrek Forever After’

Warner Bros recently registered the domain name, ahead of the movie going into production. They have also recently registered and further confirming their intention to give both characters a standalone movie at a later date.

We will keep you posted with any further news, in the mean time why not let us know below what movie your most looking forward to from DC comics.
