    In the newest comics they changed Captain Marvel to Shazam now so I don't know if that should be a hiccup for marketing anymore. The only issue I see with it though is whenever Shazam introduces himself will the trigger word set off the light bolt. :D

    Shazam is interesting because his rights are actually owned by New Line Cinema, which is owned by Warner Bros. Therefore, they will be the ones producing the futures Shazam movie, not Warner Bros. However, it is widely believed based on many people's talking that it will still take place in the DCEU. With that said, yes, The Rock has been cast as Black Adam for years now and based on talking, it seems there will actually be a Black Adam movie prior to a Shazam movie where essentially the villain gets introduced first. Then, just recently, you are right that The Rock has hinted that now the Black Adam will actually initially appear in some movie even prior to his own movie, but he is keeping which movie that is a secret. Anyway, all this just adds to the rumor production mill that is WB, where they announce a bazillion future movies with no timelines, then struggle to get productions even started, and then as a reaction to everything, constantly change what direction they are heading and what they want to do. Thus, we always have to take ALL these future movies with a grain of salt because you never know when WB will change their mind. Shoot, for all the movies they have announced, with every day that passes, the likelihood of us even seeing two DCEU movies in 2018 is slim. Literally, the only movies that are in production right now are Wonder Woman, Justice League, and Aquaman. The others they can't get off the ground.

    So this is tragic:
    Zack Snyder and his wife Deborah Snyder are leaving production of Justice League. The movie is still on pace to be released this November. Apparently Zack's 20 year old daughter committed suicide back in March and this is the first time they are commenting about it in public. That is heart-breaking to hear.


    Joss Whedon will be taking over post-production responsibilities,and possibly directing any reshoots, of Justice League.

    So tragic to hear. Thoughts and prayers to the entire Snyder family. Totally understand him stepping aside and great choice by having whedon wrap things up. As a parent myself, I can only imagine what Zack is going through.

    Thats really too bad. Hate to hear that. Perhaps he will take some indefinite time off. I would imagine this is so very hard on his family and creating movies is a 24x7 business away from them. Couldnt imagine losing a child, would shatter my world.
