Whenever he calls on the wizard’s name, he turns into a superhero named Captain Marvel who possess the wisdom of Solomon, strength of Hercules, stamina of Atlas, power of Zeus, courage of Achilles, and the speed of Mercury.

Shazam is one of the movies to be added to DC’s growing Extended Universe, to release in 2019. After months of speculations, it is confirmed that director David F. Sandberg will direct the movie based on a screenplay written by Henry Gayden.

Dwayne Johnson has long been confirmed to play the Shazam villain, Black Adam, but he may not appear in this film. The actor shared that his character will be more like the New 52 version of the character - more like an anti-hero than anything else.

As of this writing, the director has revealed that pre-production has already begun with filming eyed to begin in early 2018. He also revealed that two separate actors will play Billy and his superhero alter-ego. No actor has been announced to play the lead yet but John Cena and Joshua Sasse are considered frontrunners for the role.

Billy and Captain Marvel first appeared in Whiz Comics #2, published by Fawcett Comics. He was created by writer Bill Parker and artist C.C. Beck in 1939. He is considered one of the most popular characters in the 1940s, and became the first comic superhero to be featured in a film.

A copyright infringement suit filed by DC Comics caused the halt of the comic publication in 1953. DC would later acquire the rights to the character, and he joined the DC universe.

It has also become the highest grossing superhero origin film.

The first movie was set in 1918 towards the end of World War 2 although Diana Prince has already appeared in a more recent timeline in Zack Snyder’s 2016 movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. She is also set to appear in Justice League which will be shown on November 17, 2017 together with Aquaman/Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa), The Flash/Barry Allen (Ezra Miller), Cyborg/Victor Stone (Ray Fisher), Superman/Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and Batman/Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck).

No movie plot has been shared yet as well but many believe that a big time jump will happen. It is widely believed to happen at a time after the events on Justice League, or possibly in the 1980s. No other cast members have been confirmed to return.

The 2017 Wonder Woman film introduced Diana Prince as the daughter of Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen) who ruled over the Amazons in the hidden island of Themyscira. They are of mythological descent as a race of warrior women created by Zeus.

In 1918 she meets Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), an American pilot whom she rescues from a plane crash. They become romantically involved and fought against the Germans in hopes to stop the war. Ares (David Thewlis) who is believed to have caused the war among humans also appears and reveals Diana’s destiny.

Hellboy (2019)

January 11, 2019
Not Yet Rated
Action, Fantasy, Horror

A relaunch of the Hellboy comic book movie franchise, in which Big Red himself must face off against the deadly Blood Queen.

Hellboy is a comic book character created by Mike Mignolia, who made his first appearance in 1993's San Diego Comic-Con Comics #2 before receiving a regularly published series published by Dark Horse. His powers include superhuman strength, high levels of endurance, resistance to injury, and a healing factor that makes him immune to all diseases. Hellboy can also understand ancient languages and has a utility belt with numerous tools and weapons. He ages differently from humans, with most stories portraying him between 6 and 10 human years old.

Guillermo del Toro originally brought Hellboy to the big screen with Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army starring Ron Perlman as the titular hero, which were released in 2004 and 2008, respectively. While both received positive reviews, they had underwhelming performances at the box office, hurting the chances of a third installment ever being made. After years of speculation and hope from fans, del Toro finally put an end to the talks by saying a Hellboy 3 (which would have been the biggest of the trilogy) wasn't going to happen. This opened the door for a cinematic reboot, which features Stranger Things' David Harbour as Hellboy.

The reboot is going for an R rating, looking to capitalize on the success of blockbusters like Deadpool and Logan, which were also geared towards adults.
