    A release date for this film has finally been announced. For reference, The Rock first talked about taking on the role of Shazam or Black Adam at least as far back at 2007. It will have literally taken 15 years to finally reach the screen.

    In related news:

    The news follows on from Pierce Brosnan scoring the role of classic hero Dr. Fate alongside Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone in the film.

    I hope they remain faithful to the essential spirit of the original portrayal of the character and have him shrivel up and die after being outsmarted by a comic relief character with no special abilities.

    Rebuilding this one-off nothing into Captain Ma... er, Shazam's greatest enemy in the 1970s - when you couldn't exactly use Captain Nazi anymore - was a very smart move on DC's part, but still.

    Thankfully, an updated Captain Nazi would be a wholly fitting character for a present-day take.

    Sigh.

    So none of you have read Johns' JSA run? As that did quite a bit with the character.

    This Black Adam film is setting up to be a precursor for a Justice Society film (doubtful that WB/DC will use "America") with the cast of characters. DC is moving onward and upward.

    aldis hodge is a tremendous actor, remember him first from friday night lights, in which he took on a very tough role at a very young age. looking forward to seeing his take on hawkman.

    I'm very intrigued by Pierce Brosnan as Kent Nelson. It's not someone I would normally think of, but given his current age and his films, it actually seems like a really good fit.

    This is my favorite casting in the entire current DCEU. The potential is limitless.
