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.

Hellboy (2019)

April 12, 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.
