#JustSayTheWord is the phrase to hashtag for fans that absolutely cannot wait for the “Shazam” film scheduled for release in 2019.
Looking past the upcoming superhero films slated for release this 2017, we jump ahead to the future of 2019 where Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will play the mighty antihero Black Adam as the antagonist for “Shazam.” The film’s producer tweeted this, following a “great meeting” with DC Comics.

For unfamiliar fans, the word being referred to is “SHAZAM” – the magical phrase that allows the mortal Billy Batson to transform into the mystical and powerful Shazam possessing the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles, and the speed of Mercury.
Before we see The Rock go toe-to-toe with Shazam, we have two other installments of the DC Cinematic Universe – “Wonder Woman,” coming out June 2 and starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine; “Justice League,” coming out November 17 and features Gadot, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher and Ezra Miller.
