There has been a complete 360 degree turn around regarding the Warner Brother’s DC comic adaptation of Shazam! As I reported earlier Get Smart director, Peter Segal was attach to helm the film, based on a script by John August. Also, Get Smart co-star Dwayne Johnson had the role of the film’s bad guy Black Adam locked up. However, according to Superherohype, this project is, for lack of a better term “dunzo.”
When taking to his official blog, screenwriter John August had this to say about a Captain Marvel movie…
By the time I got back, the project was dead. By “dead,” I mean that it won’t be happening. I don’t think it’s on the studio’s radar at all. It may come back in another incarnation, with another writer, but I can say with considerable certainty that it won’t be the version I developed.
Maybe Warner Bros. is putting all their energy into trying to get the Watchmen out on time?
