DC Comics aren’t giving up the fight on comic book movies as they start work on a whole new movie franchise based on one of their oldest comic characters Shazam.
Taking a break from the direct Justice League movie franchise Shazam will be based on a comic about old magic which gives people Superman/God like powers.
Compaired to other recent DC comics movies like The Dark Knight trillogy this will be very much a fantasy movie suitable for all ages.
The power of Shazam and more importantly Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson) go back to ancient Egyptian times so we can expect a big back story to this movie and a lot of cool special effects.
At the moment we don’t know how original the story will be or if it will be based on a comic series. DC has pointed towards a recent six issue comic series called Black Adam: The Dark Ages which could be a likley basis for this movie we can expect in 2016.
