Since Marvel have been dominating on the comic book movie scene for quite a few years now, DC and Warner Bros. definitely have their work cut out to close the gap to them and they are certainly trying their best. Warner Bros. and DC have announced a number of their comic book characters that will be hitting the big screen over the coming years, getting fans around the world very excited.
One DC and Warner Bros. film that is coming our way in the near future, is the Shazam! movie, which will see Dwayne Johnson starring in the lead role. It is expected that we will see Shazam! hit the big screen on April 5, 2019 but Dwayne has been speaking about the project and has suggested that we could get the film before then.
Johnson was chatting to MTV News, when he explained, "It may happen a little earlier than what has been predicted. The script is coming in, it's great, and the support from the studio has just been great. It's just a great opportunity especially with Black Adam where you can take a guy who starts off as a bad guy turns into an anti-hero. We can make it vicious, a little bit of winking charm."
We cannot wait to see how the DC Cinematic Universe comes together and how it will compare to that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As well as looking forward to seeing all of these upcoming characters appearing in their individual movies, we are most excited about the crossover projects, which we expect will be huge.
