Could Armie Hammer Play Shazam In The DCEU? Here’s What He Says

Armie Hammer the lone ranger

The potential casting for the titular hero in Shazam has become one of the most talked about aspects of the DC slate. While The Rock has been attached to play the villainous Black Adam for quite some time, DC seems to have had a much harder time finding the movie’s central character. However, The Rock recently confirmed that his personal favorite choice for the role would be The Social Network‘s Armie Hammer — causing a wave of anticipation and speculation about the possibility. I recently had the chance to ask Hammer whether or not he’s interested in Shazam, and while he has yet to meet with anyone about the part officially, he’s also really pumped about the idea. He said:

Henry Cavill as Superman

We know so little about how Supeman (Henry Cavill) will be used in the upcoming Justice League movie that any hint is enough to send DC fans into palpitations. Naturally, we assume that Kal-El will come back from the dead, but there are numerous mysteries surrounding the state of Superman, so when we see Tweets like this from the mighty Geoff Johns, our geek pulses start to race:

DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns was playfully responding to a list posted by Heroic Hollywood about the 5 Best Superman Moments So Far in the DCEU.

The still untitled Han Solo movie is currently in production and they’re apparently in Spain right now, as that’s where Woody Harrelson snapped a picture of himself and his co-star, who has the world’s greatest Billy Dee Williams mustache not worn by Billy Dee Williams.

One Big Change The Mummy Should Have Made To Its Ending

The Mummy

It should be no secret by now, but The Mummy — which opened this weekend — is not a great movie. Though it’s likely to be saved by the international box office, the movie has flopped in the States, falling to the sword of the much more relevant and interesting Wonder Woman. The poor reviews and Rotten Tomatoes score aren’t helping either. The Mummy just hasn’t made the splash that Universal was clearly hoping for, and I can’t help but think that if The Mummy had at least made one change to its ending, it would have at least gotten some attention: Tom Cruise should have been the villain.

We Finally Know More About Zack Snyder’s Wonder Woman Cameo

Wonder Woman in no man's land

Although Patty Jenkins did something truly historic wth Diana Prince’s first solo movie, Zack Snyder still holds the distinction of being the first modern filmmaker to include Wonder Woman in a film. The Batman V Superman director played a massive part in getting the DCEU off of the ground, and that influence extended to playing a significant role behind the scenes on Wonder Woman.

Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker

Mark Hamill is part of the biggest movie franchise in the world, but recently superhero movies as a genre have been taking over the industry. What does Luke Skywalker think about that? Overall he thinks that superhero movies are fantastic, but he does worry that the genre may be going overboard, and not focusing on the right things, specifically, story. According to Hamill…

I don’t know what’s going on with superhero movies. They’re fantastic, but I think we’re reaching a point of oversaturation. So that’s why the story is so important, is that the gimmicks and all that, they can only take you so far. That’s what I want, better stories.
