Behind the ScenesEdit


On April 28, 2014, The Wall Street Journal revealed an upcoming slate of Warner Bros. films based on DC Comics properties, including a Shazam film to be potentially released in 2016.[1][2][3] Dwayne Johnson confirmed the project and his attachment on August 20, 2014,[4] officially announcing his casting as Black Adam on September 3, 2014.[5] Shazam, still a New Line Cinema production being released through Warner Bros.,[6] is being executive produced by Toby Emmerich and screenwriter Darren Lemke of Jack the Giant Slayer and Turbo, has been hired to write the script. Emmerich told Entertainment Weekly in an interview that the film will have a tone unto itself separate from the concurrent Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film: with a sense of fun and humor, but with real stakes and an anti-hero version of Black Adam.[7] On October 15, 2014, Warner Bros. announced Shazam for a 2019 release as the eighth installment of the DC Comics Extended Universe.[8] Henry Gayden was announced as the screenwriter for Shazam on January 19, 2017. [9] On February 17, 2017, David S Sandberg was announced to be in talks with New Line to direct Shazam. [10]
