CBMB: SHAZAM! to Start Production in 2018

By Muuka Muyumba

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Shazam! will blast off next year with Annabelle: Creation director David Sandberg at the helm. The project is at off shoot of Warner Bros., New Line productions which has seemed to be-devil the production for many years. The film will reportedly get cameras rolling in January or February of 2018.

Peter Safran is producing the film which is said to center on the origin story of young Billy Batson, the 12 year old boy who becomes one of the most powerful heroes in the DC extended universe. THR also notes that Shazam’s natural enemy Black Adam may not be part of this picture as star Dwayne Johnson will likely lead up his own solo film.

Some rumors suggest that Henry Cavill aka Superman may actually play a role in teaching Batson how to be a hero. This seems like a plausible rumor considering how well Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) worked in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
