In anticipation of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con we’re looking at everything we know will be there, some things that may show up, and what we know about the various projects thus far. The San Diego Comic Con is the biggest Pop Culture convention in the world, and many studios release new information on projects, new trailers, and much more over the five days of the convention. Today we’re taking a look at the DC Cinematic Universe panel and what all that may include.
The highly anticipated film adaptation of Ernest Cline’s novel Ready Player One hit theatres this weekend. Directed by Steven Spielberg with a Script by Cline and Zak Penn, the film stars Tye Sheridan as Wade Watts. A teenager living in a dystopian future, where the majority of humanity has decided to spend most of their life in a VR platform called the Oasis.
Over the past few years DC comics has announced a slew of films that they’re going to be producing and releasing in the coming years. One of the projects that has received a lot of hype is a Shazam movie this is mostly due to the fact that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson began talks with DC over whether he wanted to play Shazam or his main antagonist Black Adam. When it was announced that The Rock would be starting as Black Adam, it was also announced that he would be getting his own film, following along with with the most recent interpretations of the character where he is more of an antihero then he is a flat out villain. Not much more development has been made or announced when to comes to the Shazam movie, until today.
