Either way, Black adam or Shazam, it would be the best big casting news DC has had since Cavill as Supes.

Yep. It would be a major coup too: The biggest action star in the world playing a dc character. rock's movies don't do badly at the box office, so this would have to be an absolute turkey for it to fail.

If Rock is Shazam do you think Billy will get alot of screen time? That's my issue with him being Shazam.

I honestly don't think we will see a live action Black Adam, i could be proved wrong but idk.

Jason Momoa would be a good fit for Black Adam.

Oh Yeah! You're getting me excited!

The Rock as "Black" Adam will be a success

I don't know who the heck they would use as a villain if not Black Adam. He's got to be Shazam's most if only known villain.

Probably a superman villain that they dont lnow how to fit in a standard narrative (Mos2, JL, Mos3, JL2) if i had to guess probably Mongul.

Edit: look at all the Bat rogues showing up in Arrow.

I'd actually want them to fit mongul into Man of steel 2, but after Injustice, all the animated features, Black adam is in the public eye even if he's not hugely popular. It's debatable he may end up being a bigger draw than the star.

Sivana.

There is also Mr. Mind but I admit he's not as famous.

Sivana is probably somewhere at the very bottom of the Z-list though. They could probably have both with BA being the main course .

Sivana is legit, but I'm a sucker for D-listers so I can't probably argue against it.

It is a bit of a quandary. Black Adam is Shazam's most famous adversary, but the character has been at his best in the past twenty years as an anti-hero who wants to dispense old world justice, so I'd prefer Adam & Shazam to be adversarial in philosophy but ultimately team up.

That leaves more mystical foes like Eclipso, Blaze, Mister Mind...Sivana? I'd rather not go down the Lex Luthor route.

Pretty much. They need to get a big name actor to get this going. Superman and Batman could have anybody go into the role and it's gonna make money.

Yeah that looks to me like he's hinting at Black Adam there.

He'd certainly be a better fit into the DCCU, with the more serious tone MOS has given us, just not sure where Cap. Marvel will fit into it then. And there is something nice they would be missing out on if they don't take the route of the little kid shouting the magic word Imho.
