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.

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.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (2019)

R
Crime, Drama, Thriller

Once Upon A Time in Hollywood is a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor... Sharon Tate. Header image is from Django Unchained.

This is the ninth feature film from Oscar-winning director Quentin Tarantino and his first since 2015's The Hateful Eight. Initially, it was reported it would focus on the infamous Charles Manson murders, but that element is more of a background aspect, as Tarantino revealed it is set in 1969 Hollywood and is more of an overview of that era. It marks the first time Tarantino is not working with The Weinstein Company, which he parted ways with following Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment scandal.
