When the DCEU was announced, one of the biggest surprises of the lineup wasn’t Green Lanter Corps, or Suicide Squad, it was that SHAZAM!, a long-time cult favorite character was going to be getting his own series. Yet, the only news that seemed to come out of the film since the announcement was that Black Adam was confirmed to be in the film, and later, that he would be played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Adding to the confusion, and wondering about the state of the film, was that recently, Black Adam was confirmed by Warner Bros. to be getting his own solo film. Making many wonder when SHAZAM! would ever come back.
Well, the first real news on the film itself is here. And, it’s a big one. As SHAZAM! has finally gotten a writer in the form of Henry Gayden. You might know him from the film “Earth To Echo”. He was asked by a fan on Twitter who said he saw a report of him being the writer for the film.
