A new image gives Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam a suit similar to what Zachary Levi’s Shazam looks like. Could his final DCEU look be something similar to this?
While we wait on the announcement for whether we’ll see Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam debut in a sequel for Zachary Levi’s Shazam or in a Black Adam standalone film first, fan artists sure like to imagine several looks for the DC anti-hero. We’ve shown you some looks for Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam in the past, and now another digital artist brings us a version of the Shazam villain standing near the Giza Pyramids in a hood which mimics what Zachary Levi’s Shazam costume looks like. Could this be how Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam will look when he makes his DCEU debut? Check it out:
Dwayne Johnson’s introduction to the DCEU could mean that there are threats that can finally go toe-to-toe with Henry Cavill’s Superman and then some. Black Adam is one of the most powerful anti-heroes or villains in the DC Universe and Dwayne Johnson seems to be preparing the character for something mind-blowing for the DCEU. When Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam gets introduced in the DCEU, it probably won’t be for just one film as Warner Bros. will likely want him around as a permanent menace for the members of the Justice League members and for Zachary Levi’s Shazam. Dwayne Johnson may be one of the most successful actors in Hollywood right now, so he might be a much-needed boost for the DCEU and its future.
Which stories would you like to see Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam featured in when he debuts in the DCEU? Do you want to see him face off against Zachary Levi’s magical superhero in the Shazam! sequel? Or would you rather see Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam go at it against the Justice League? Sound off in the comment section down below!
Following Shazam!, which is now playing, the DCEU continues with Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
Until we get more news on Dwayne Johnson and Black Adam, here is the official synopsis for Shazam!:
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).
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou.
Shazam! is now playing! Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for more on Dwayne Johnson and his involvement in the DCEU as we know it!
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
