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?”

    I’m really glad that people are starting to talk about the movie! I personally wasn’t too thrilled with their picks. I was on the Cena bandwagon for a while, but now I’m not too sure. My personal choice for the role of Captain Marvel is Jai Courtney. He has the acting credentials and the physicality – and the square jaw – to play the role and not get overpowered by Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam.

    On a side note, I do have a bit of fear that most of the talk about the movie concerns Black Adam, so I’m hoping it’s not a movie about Black Adam with Captain Marvel as the sub plot. Hopefully the reason for all the talk about Black Adam now is just because The Rock has the role.

    My personal choices are Victor Webster, Tom Welling, Derek Theler, Michael Copon, Kellan Lutz, Daniel Cudmore, or Alan Ritchson
