 I think he'll be better as Black Adam then Shazam.  Wonder who they'll cast?

 He looks the part so pretty good casting.

I'm betting that they'll skip Captain Marvel entirely in the DCCU. I'd like to be wrong but I doubt that they want a character so similar to Superman

except wasn't it just announced he'd be playing Black Adam in a Shazam movie? Yeah, Black Adam sounds like a much more interesting character.

 No Shazzam movie has been announced nevermind confirmed by WB/DC

 @Wiseguy, are you suggesting that WB will add Black Adam to the film continuity without adding Captain Marvel?  If so, I heartily disagree.  Sure, his power set is similar to Superman, but the character is so vastly different,.  The fact that he is really a 12 year old boy is absolutely the hook for a Captain Marvel movie.  It's also the reason that, in its heyday, Captain Marvel sold more issues than Superman.  The child in a man's body provdies so many opportunities for a script writer, I just can't believe DC would pass up something so unique.  And the fact that WB hasn't confirmed or announced dosn't mean much.  They haven't announced a Wonder Woman movie, but you've seen Gal Gadot in costume.  In fact, I'm a little disappointed that the Rock will be Black Adam.  Sure, he looks perfect for the part, but I think he could also do a really great job playing a big super powered kid, so I was kind of hoping he'd be Shazam.

I read that WB has secured the internet domains for shazammovie and wonderwoman.  So it appears they are paving the way for a Shazam movie after all.  This just happened over the weekend.

Wiseguy 9/3/2014 5:29:54 PM

 Black Adam IS the original Capt. Marvel. I can see WB deciding just to stick with him. His road from hero to villain and back to some sort of anti-hero and redemption can stand by itself.

Like I said in my first post I'd rather be wrong because I dig Capt. Marvel but the DCCU seems to prefer a more serious tone where BA fits perfectly and although CM can definitely be accommodated  he seems to lean to a lighter tone.

 

I wouldn't be surprised either way but I'm thinking they'll just skip CM. Maybe bring him in down the road

 

Wiseguy 9/3/2014 5:32:54 PM

Shazam is oiginally the wizard so that alone doesn't determine CM or BA. Securing domain titles like this is a common practice to avoid having to payoff somebody down the road anyway

how about tom welling as captain marvel he got screwed over by dc by not getting the man of steel movie so i think wb/dc owes him a little something....who else agrees with me?????

BunyonSnipe 9/3/2014 7:11:31 PM

The 'reason' that Tom Welling didn't get Man Of Steel is that Smallville was almost universally terrible and he just wasn't good enough!

He doesn't have the range needed for Captain Marvel... Get Patrick Warburton!
