Lobo ya bastiches! That would be awesome, though, to have it done right I'd have to be over the top violent/vulgar. I don't know if WB/Rock would be up for it image wise

I think it'd be a good opportunity to really try something different for himself. Show off range as an actor as opposed to sort of being an extension of himself like he usually is. Basically a toned down version of the Rock we saw in his hey day as a pro wrestler.

I think it'd be awesome if he did a Lobo movie. Like you said, his Rock personality would be a great fit for the role.

No official photos yet but it's filming in Toronto so lots of leaks coming


A 14-year-old boy named Billy Batson is granted the powers of six ancient heroes by a dying wizard, which he activates by saying the wizard's name, "Shazam!" Upon doing so, he is transformed by a magic lightning bolt into an adult superhero. Each of the ancient heroes' initials are represented by the letters in the word: the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles, and the speed of Mercury.

While Billy at first revels in the joy of being a hero - albeit one who still has a teenager's mind - he is forced into serious action in order to battle the evil Doctor Sivana. On Billy's side is his foster brother and best friend Freddy Freeman, a superhero enthusiast who helps both train Billy and keep Billy's secret

Will be a weird contrast against Black Adam set to be played by Dwayne Johnson.

Looks like fun, the suit still looks really fake but it kind of adds to the charm lol.

As far as Black Adam I'm kind of against The Rock playing him now, I'd rather that part went to someone who looked more like they were from the Middle East which is where that character is from. The Rock is kind of over exposed right now anyway and I think people are sort of getting tired of seeing him in a new movie every two or three months.

I heard the idea about this movie awhile back. It looks entertaining I just don’t like the suit and stupid looking cape.

I remember watching repeats of that show when I was a kid, they usually played them during the summer.

As far as the new movie I really like Levi playing the part but I wish the younger Billy would be as goofy and not act like the cool kid, their personalities don't match.
