Movie: Shazam!

Captain Marvel flick...

From IGN...

Who may be up for the role of Captain Marvel?


March 15, 2007 - With John August now set to pen the latest draft of the screenplay for the big-screen version of Shazam!, the rumor mill is now setting its sights on who may play comic book hero Captain Marvel in the New Line film.

According to NYDailyNews.com, Shazam! producers are eyeing Jake Gyllenhaal for the part. "Sources say director Peter Segal and his fellow producers want to nab Gyllenhaal before Spider-Man director Sam Raimi does - with Spider-Man 3 due to open on May 4, star Tobey Maguire has said he may let someone else play the web slinger," claims columnists Rush & Molloy.

You may recall that Gyllenhaal nearly subbed for Maguire on Spider-Man 2 when Maguire's bad back (other reports suggest differently) almost made the producers re-cast the role. Gyllenhaal has previously screen-tested for the title roles in both Superman Returns and Batman Begins. (Ironically, Jake's sister Maggie Gyllenhaal recently replaced Katie Holmes in the latter's sequel, The Dark Knight.)

Rush & Molloy's unnamed insider adds that New Line is "ready to spend up to $200 million to get (Shazam!) started."

Jake Gyllenhaal's credits include Zodiac, Jarhead, Brokeback Mountain, Donnie Darko and The Day After Tomorrow.

This would be interesting. I remember the old Captain Marvel show on Saturday mornings in the early '80s.

So they're playing this for laughs. The flying test was funny though.

I'm going to guess right now that Superman will make a cameo in this.

Cavill out as Supes. I posted it here because they couldn't agree to an agreement for him to cameo in this movie.

Its a huge bummer that Warner Bros has their heads so far up their asses that they have fucked this all to hell and back.

Cavill was a great Superman. And Man of Steel is still the best DC movie they have made in recent times. But Warner kept butting in and trying to deal with something they clearly dont understand and mishandled EVERYTHING since Batman v Superman. Which also sucks because Affleck was the perfect Wayne/Batman.

So, thanks Warner Bros...for being a complete bunch of idiots.

Not as funny as Deadpool but still pretty funny. Pretty good and honestly might be the best DCEU movie but only because I think WW was overrated but liked MoS and BVS (I know). Still a good, funny movie and worth watching in the theater.

Spoiler
The Rock, exec producer of this, said on his IG that there will be a part 2 with him as Black Adam and they film next year.

Just watched this last night. It was incredibly cheesy but i'm sure that was completely intentional. Zach Levi is a great guy, met him in person in NY once and I'll always remember him as Chuck the Intersect..
Spoiler
I'm curious as how the second one will pan out.
