Producer Says "Shazam!" is Still Alive

Posted: January 15th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Producer Says "Shazam!" is Still AliveSubmit Comment
Last week, screenwriter John August revealed that the long-rumored Captain Marvel movie called "Shazam!" is now dead. "By 'dead,' I mean that it won't be happening," he said. "I don't think it's on the studio's radar at all. It may come back in another incarnation, with another writer, but I can say with considerable certainty that it won't be the version I developed."

Now, producer Michael Uslan tells MTV News that fans shouldn't abandon hope of seeing the hero in theaters. "I will only say one thing and all I will do is quote Samuel Clemens to you," hinted Uslan. "This is direct from Captain Marvel himself: 'The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.'"

It doesn't surprise me that Warner Bros would want to proceed with "Shazam!" and according to August, expect a dark story of Captain Marvel vs Black Adam, which is very different from his original script that he referred to as "'Big' with superpowers."

Captain Marvel is a superhero roughly as powerful as Superman. What's unique about the character is that in ordinary life, he's teenager Billy Batson. Speaking the name of the wizard who gave him his powers (Shazam) calls down a magic thunderbolt, transforming him into the uperhero. But he's still a teenager in there.

I enjoyed the cartoons and comics back in the day. If it's John August's script - it could be a good one. However, I've liked Marvel best in the Justice League.

ehhh.... Captain Marvel always seemed overrated to me. We'll see though I guess, could be decent enough if they get the facts straight.
