According to ‘Revenge of The Fans’ the next time we will get to see Henry Cavill’s Superman on the big screen is in DC’s upcoming Shazam film. Shazam is set to be released next April and is directed by David Sandberg. Granted this isn’t the first time I’ve heard these rumours but ‘Revenge of The Fans’ have a good reputation and claim to have a trusted source for this scoop. As for what I think about Superman turning up in Shazam? I think it would be a really good idea. I’d like to see Superman play a mentor role to Billy Batson who will be a new inexperienced hero in Shazam. Superman is definitely someone that can show him the ropes of what it’s like to be a superhero. There is also a theory that one of the kids interviewing Superman at the beginning of Justice League is Billy Batson so they could tie that in if they wanted to.
My one worry with this idea is would Superman’s presence in this film be too much and take away from Shazam himself? If they do this it has to be done right. In my opinion the use of Iron Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming was too much and in general the film suffered because of this.
I put together a slideshow of a few comic pages from various series to show what Shazam and Superman’s relationship could look like on the big screen:
One last thing I would like to add is that Henry Cavill according to a lot of people has only one film left on his Warner Bros. contract (granted this has never been confirmed) .So could this be the last time we see his Superman on the big screen ever? I would love for them to give him another solo Superman film before recasting the role in my opinion. There seems to be a lot of rumours surrounding the studio rather than confirmations at the moment. Well what we know for certain is that Shazam is set to be released on April, 5 2019.
Let me know what you think about this rumour down below?
Do you want to see Superman show up in Shazam?
