In fact considering Cap Marvel might be Billy most the time, and The Rock will obviously take a lot of the screen time as well, the Physique may actually be more important than the acting for this particular part. Just depends how they plan go about the role. But either way the Physique is really important for this one IMHO.

And Joe's acting skills are good. This particular role I think he'd be well suited for. But who knows who WB will pick in the end. It's not like any of their casting decisions have been predictable.



Crap, I just thought.. What if Jason Momoa isn't Aquaman and he's Shazam?! Because that Aquaman rumor still hasn't been confirmed, but the last time he was interviewed about it he hinted he's hiding something.


?

I didn't suggest Chris Pratt should be Shazam... I said, the same way Pratt built up his physique for Starlord, another talented actor could do for shazam. So WB should not cast based on physique.

I haven't seen much of Joe Mangenallo, so I'm not the best judge of his talent. He looks the role though.

Nice thinking. Kind of weird WB/Jason hasn't confirmed anything. And I doubt it takes this LONG to get a contract going. I actually would have preferred Jason as Adam and the Rock as SHAZAM.

It's also kind of backwards to announce casting decisions without a director being named. That's backwards; you get the director first and let them build the movie from the ground up.

Well to be fair WB didn't announce this. The Rock went and announced it himself.

I'm wondering if they are looking at Channing Tatum for Shazam... shifty

^Well, maybe he is, if the producers could figure out the time limitations they put on the character. Gambit met Wolverine in the 1980's in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, before he got amnesia. Even with the rebooted time stream, that's still the period he was a young man. So despite all the talk, I wonder if Gambit will be brought back anytime soon, while Shazam is happening now.

X-Man Origins wasn't merely rebetooed it was completely ignored.

Like they care. Have you forgotten Stryker from DOFP being around 15-20 years younger than he should have been according to Origins:Wolverine.

Not at all. The original X-men films were rebooted but it seemed that Origins never happened. Not even in the old timeline.

Before DoFP, Origins was canon. Now that history was changed, it might or might not be canon. My guess is they'll reboot Wolverine's backstory, or at least mention how it's different from Origins.

1973 onwards in the mutantverse will happen in a different way. But the 1980's is still where Gambit appeared. But since the next film will be in the 1980's (X-Men: Apocalypse), Gambit could be brought in, I guess.

As I said, I doubt Origins is even canon in the old timeline. As DP already mentioned, Striker's age doesn't work. Their were a couple other continuity problems as well but I digress...

Stryker's age was the main continuity problem between Dofp and Origins. The other one was "where was Sabretooth" through all this. And is he going to come looking for Logan now?. Or Logan looking for him since they apparently haven't had that falling out in the new timeline?

Well the answer to both is no. Because they're just ignoring it. Lauren Shuller Donner told us to just forget both X3 and Origins:Wolverine. Clearly we can't completely forget X3 as the whole Jean becomes Phoenix saga was clearly referenced in both The Wolverine and DOFP. But we can forget Origins as there's the above contradictions which will clearly never get addressed.

Anyway Channing Tatum actually would be the right age for Gambit in the 80's but as we've seen with Stryker, they don't even care about that and it certainly wouldn't influence any of their decisions.

Origins had one single reference but honestly it wasn't even really a call back to that movie; being the Logan operation. Logan according to Origins should have been in Vietnam in Dofp... i think you can safely say Fox is dumping it from existence.

On Topic i think Shazam's Child actor should be the Star of the movie. Though i think he should probably be like 15-16 in story so a 18-19yo actor wouldn't be the worst thing and use make-up and Cgi like a reverse Captain America 1 to age and buff him up. A padded suit wouldn't hurt either.

Then again MoS cgi was bad so maybe less Cgi in this the better.
