A Shazam rumor from earlier this week was just confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter. They say that Shazam is the next DC Comics movie that will go into production, and cameras are expected to start rolling in January or February 2018 for a targeted 2019 release.

The bad news is The Rock, who has been cast as Shazam villain Black Adam, may no longer be co-starring. Instead, The Rock will star in his own Black Adam movie.

David Sandberg, who was in talks earlier this year, is set to direct Shazam. The movie will come from New Line, Warner Bros.’ sister company.

Are you looking forward to Shazam? Who do you think should play the hero? Let me know in the comments below.
