For some reason, I have no problem with this casting. I'd like to see any Captain Marvel movie (it's the guys name! Shazam is the frickin' wizard...) take place in the 1940s as an art-deco period piece, complete with Dr. Sivana as the evil genius super-villain and Black Adam as the muscle. Captain Marvel has always been a light-hearted comic/superhero, and if they play it correctly (i.e. they don't make it lame and cheesy), this could be a good film.
Geez, let's see what Mr. Johnson can do before dismissing him out of hand. It's not like he's had a lot of chances to demonstrate his range yet, but I seem to recall him being pretty likable when he guested on That 70s Show. Besides, the real trick will be casting Billy. Anyway, like Ashton Kutcher as Batman, the guy's filmography isn't nearly long enough yet to assume we've seen all he's capable of and pre-emptively declare him a disaster.
The Rock really looks like Captain Marvel! No Thanx!
I hope this turns out to be very untrue. The Rocks acting is very over-rated, IMO, he wasn't too great in Scorpion King, OK acting at best. He has no superhero vibes what so ever, he'd be as big a super hero disaster as George Clooney was as Batman. I would like to see this movie, though. But i'm sure they can do better than The Rock on a lead role.
The Rock looks the part, aside from not being white. I'm just glad they're making a Captain Marvel movie.
Thats news I didnt need to hear today. What an uninspired choice. Is this to bring the wrestling fans in??????? If thats who they want to please, I have no interest in seeing this movie.
How did Scorpion King do? Did that attract millions & millions of the Rock's fans?
Finally. Shaq never really had the dramatic range to bring the incredible potential a rapping genie could offer to the cinematic world. I think the Rock will easily be able to convey the pathos and ennui of the character. Ohhhhhhhh...Shazam. :b
My pick would be Evan Marriott (Joe Millionaire) for Captain Marvel.
Evan Marriott does look like him and apparently has some acting ability. None of his stuff has been released yet, AFAIK, so I'm not sure how good he is.
WB can do NOTHING except fuck up their superhero properties?The current Superman disaster,Punk'd guy as Batman, JLO as Wonderwoman,etc Jeez!! How do these people get and keep their jobs?!?!? Off the top of my head - heres a better pick
Patrick "The Tick" Warburton seems perfect for the role, but is there really a market for a Captain Marvel movie? Since it was a pretty goofy comic book, wouldn't a movie either, a) be pretty goofy, or b) tick off fans for being untrue to the comic book? Apologies to the Captain Marvel fans if my characterization of the comic book is wrong, but wasn't one of Captain Marvel's main villains a worm? I'm no CM expert, obviously. Jan
Read "Shazam!Power Of Hope". Written by Paul Dini and beautifully painted by Alex Ross. You can get it on Amazon.You can see a sample here. Just go to the bottom of the page and click on Oversized Graphic Novels, then Shazam!Power Of Hope.http://www.alexrossart.com/archives.html Read "Kingdom Come" too - the showdown with Superman is fantastic. Both are really great portrayals of Capt Marvel/Shazam.
