Check Out Who Is On the Cover to Cyborg #9

Issues No Comment

If you haven’t seen it already, the beautiful Dan Panosian cover of Cyborg #9 features none other than Shazam.  So yeah, I’ll be buying this one for sure.  Maybe we’ll get to see Billy Batson taking his new powers/pantheon out for a spin.

Here are the details courtesy of DC’s official site:

Federal forces are sent to capture Cyborg and his technology—but things take a bizarre twist when tensions rise among members of the Justice League, who are split over what Cyborg should do. Shazam doesn’t understand why Cyborg won’t go along with the federal agents. Could this be the moment that ends their friendship?

According to the mothership the issue goes on sale March 23rd.

The Superhero Show: 6 Actors Who Could Play Shazam

The Movie 3 Comments

I try to leave the Shazam movie discussion to others who are better qualified but I thought this video from IGN‘s The Superhero Show might be of interest to Shazamcast readers.

The last good idea I had on this front was to cast Logan Lerman as Billy Batson but, considering Lerman is now 23 years old, that ship has sailed.

So, what do you think about IGN’s choices?  I guess the only non-negotiable (in my heart anyway) is “John Cena?  Are you kidding?”
