Dwayne movie | The Verge
So The Rock is officially confirmed in this movie. The problem is, no one is going to root for Captain Marvel, or Shazam, or whatever his name is now. Actually, to hell with it, I want to see Black Adam lay the smack down on a bunch of roody poos the whole movie. I'd masturbate to a movie version of WWIII.

So the man writing the screen play is the same writer behind shrek 3d, turbo, and jack the giant slayer.....
How you gonna rip off the hulk's arms. That's ridiculous.

isnt that shazaam?
The Hulk could totally take him if he had time to prepare first.
EDIT: On a serious note, that's not the Hulk, even though that looks almost exactly like him though. That's the Teen Titans / Young Frankenstein. It's just too bad he didn't kill all of them...
Rokk's Comic Book Revolution: Comic Book Review: World War III Part Three: Hell Is For Heroes
So I just watched the DCUO trailer with Black Bolt in it and I noticed that he was raping face and even yelled Shazam to defeat Green Lantern and The Flash. I vaguely know a little bit about Capt Marvel / Shazam but nothing about Mr Bolt. He is just some "alt universe" version of Shazam? If he says the word, does he instead turn into an old man instead of a kid? From the looks of it, he is just your generic super power dude (Flight, strength, bla bla bla) or does he have other shit as well?
Black Adam. Black Bolt is a Marvel character. Black Adam was the original possessor of Shazam's power in the ancient Egyptian era, but is morally unfit to hold the power and as punishment Shazam banishes him to the most distant star in the galaxy. He spends the next five thousand years flying back to earth. He eventually shifted from a villain into an anti-hero, although he took a big jump back to villain in the 2007 World War 3 arc when he massacred almost the entire population of Bialya (around 2m) while avenging his dead family.
He's Black Adam, Black Bolt is an entirely different character.
Black Adam has all the powers that Captain Marvel/Shazam has, he was a champion in Ancient Egypt who was banished/lost/time displaced (depends on the origin) and doesn't like the fact that there's a new Captain Marvel around. He basically has no qualms or reservations about using violence for his ends. And he doesn't fuck around as you can see.
Actually, Black Adam kills more than just Hal Jordan and Flash, I just never paid much attention. Looks like he takes out Cyborg, Circe, and Harley with that blast too.
that 6 minute trailer is still one of the best DC movies in existence.
The trailer being so awesome is how I knew the game would be shit.
so this black adam is a bad guy? whats the odds of the rock playing a bad guy in a film? and if he is good or bad what are the odds he will be as graphically violent as those above panels?

Crap, I just realized that for Black Adam to be done right, this movie needs to be rated R. And DC's not going to do that.
His own movie would be way better than Captain Marvel (and family, bleh)
There is a DC/Captain Marvel Animated Short film on Netflix, has some nice Black Adam stuff. Check it out.
You talking Superman/Shazam? It's not bad. The one where superman and captain marvel team up against black Adam? And they barely stop him? I like it because those 3 characters basically can't stop each other in any meaningful way. So they have to think of alternate ways to get the advantage
If I read the Wiki correctly it is because he went to order a chocolate egg creme Malt one day?
yeah, Billy changed the magic word, to something Black Adam would never say.
6 months later, he's visiting Fawcett city and orders a Chocolate egg creme. and transforms into Black Adam.
He does invoke Terror.
After the funeral in honor of his family, Adam attacks the neighboring Intergang-associated nation of Bialya in search of Death. Sick with grief over the death of his family, Adam proceeds to exterminate the entire 2,000,000 citizen population of Bialya in his hunt for his target.
Dont worry about it, all that shit got rebooted in the new 52 anyway =D
the story of black adam recovering the magic word is just a way for DC to milk money.
again like we said in the marvel thread, black adam is awesome while shazam(captain marvel/billy baston) is a complete total retard.
case in point, the word.
both black adam(dressed in black/anti hero/villian) and shazam/captain marvel(dressed in red) call upon the magic word shazam.
ok first you're like wtf, this shazam/captain marvel guy calls his own name? shazam to turn into shazam? not really he is billy baston(retard child) that says the magic word shazam to change into captain marvel.
long story short, you can't/won't call him captain marvel, cuz of marvel comics, and he's such a dumb carbon copy of superman that all he's known for is just saying shazam, so ppl just call him shazam.
so saying shazam gives you the combined powers of some ancient gods or some shit (Zeus/Hercules and fuck all if anyone remembers the others) anyway, you say the words lighting strikes and bam, you're fake superman. (these comics were made in the 40's)
so in WW3 where black adam is a cool ass cat murdering superheros and cleaning house with all the worthless E/D/C rank super heroes. captain marvel is like talking to these gods and saying black adam is acting too black(evil) and the gods are like, fuck you, he has our blessing.
so captain marvel does some shit with the DC universe version of dr. strange and changes the word to something black adam will NEVER find out to turn into black adam, ever again.
chocolate egg creme
black adam will NEVER turn into black adam again, so he goes on a hacker quest basically, he's brute force cracking passwords just saying shit and then this.
chocolate adam.jpgchocolate adam 2.jpg
he even mocks him at the end, how much of an idiot captain marvel is.
It's important to note a few things. Firstly, depowered black Adam (teth Adam) is still pretty beastly. Secondly, when Shazam gave captain marvel his powers, they didn't get taken from black Adam. They are summoning two different sets of gods/mythological characters. Black Adam being egyption, captain marvel being mish mash of characters. The wisdom of Solomon and the strength of Hercules for example
well we can always debate about how there are racial undertones to billy baston a dumb white boy who transforms into a dumb white guy gets his powers from white gods Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury, the first S is a jew for christ sakes.
while black adam is more "ethic" as evidenced by him being played by the rock, also in comics whenever a character is called "black" that means not white (black panther, black lightning, black spider... etc) he basically has total allegiance and will die for his fake country of kandaq which is basically representative of any arab/persian country that begins with an "I" or ends with a "-stan", and calls upon the eqyptian gods, Shu, Heru, Amon, Zehuti, Aton, Mehen
also if you like black adam or like him now, he's pretty cool in forever evil, basically dc villians save the world.

Black Adam flips back and forth between good and bad guy. For a year or two, he was in the JSA, and basically their equivalent of Superman. Then he leaves the JSA to go back to his country. He gathers all of the people in front of the palace, and tells them he's caught a thief. He tells them to watch what happens to thieves in his country. Then he rips the guy in half and throws his pieces at the crowd. BAM, instant heel turn. He's like Doctor Doom, in that he's a monarch and believes he has to make tough choices that aren't popular. Choices he makes aren't necessarily evil, but Machiavellian in nature. Of the pics I posted, probably 70% of those were of him with criminals. He's kind of like what the Punisher would look like if he was from Krypton.
Dude. I would totally buy that comic series
black adam is a character of convenience, specifically i call his specific type "allegiance characters"
you know who are allegiance characters?
namor has unrelenting allegiance to atlantis
...and just like namor so does aquaman to atlantis
doom has latveria
sinestro and kryygar?(sp)
they will never 100% betray their countries, right or wrong, there is only their allegiance, and this is how at times they are used as the "foil" (sure sometimes they're overthrown, but they scheme and plot to gain back their country)
if you threaten their allegiance they will back your play.
thats how they're usually the "enemy", "i'm only doing this for my [insert country]"
it's always a bad guy (grey good/bad) character, never a good guy.
b/c if it is between the choice of right v. wrong or allegiance, they will choose RIGHT.
stars and strips cap merica went against the US in civil war, he thought it was wrong to oppress(or some shit) individuals
thor went against asgards no inter policies with earth in seige
many side stories of superman going against the US for being, the US
so they're able to make these allegiance characters, in the grey of bad/good guy, basically "tried and true".
i have no idea why it's rated so low i'm sure this is the right link, maybe the nerdiest of the nerds rated it. i'll check again soon.
Captain Atom notably is very often forced to fight superman when the US Military's goals and the Justice Leagues don't match.
Things like Marvel's Civil war. but as you note, they specifically had Capt on the opposite of the governments side.
More Allied nations rarely get drawn into it. Canada's Alpha flight, Captain Briton or anything. Same with DC's Canadian/British people. You might get a breif, "we are taking him back to Canada" but never a real WW3 type fight.

I know there are other comic superheroes that are just as bad if not worse, but I read the Wikipedia article on this dude's powers and I'm honestly just like, "What the fuck?"
How is a guy that's immortal, basically omniscient, can time travel, blah, blah, etc, at all interesting? It's like the guy who created him was that little kid who gets frustrated and changes all the rules mid-game so that he can't ever lose. It's pretty stupid sounding to me. But then again, I'm not a comic book nerd. I collected them when I was younger, but I never really read them.
Could someone post the panels of these guys 'tricking' Shazam in to saying his name? The wiki had like three instances of beating him this way abd it makes no sense to me.
Black Adam back in the day had the same thing, however since he was 4000 years old his mortal form would die so he would never go back to that form. Its been retcon'd a few times and now BA can xfer back and forth.
Jesus Christ. It's Billy Batson, not Baston or Bastion. Not a single person has spelled his name right.
S- Wisdom of Solomon
H- Strength of Hercules
A- Stamina of Atlas
Z- Power of Zeus
A- Courage of Achilles
M- Speed of Achilles
S- Stamina of Shu
H- Swiftness of Heru
A- Strength of Amon
Z- Wisdom of Zehuti
A- Power of Aton
M- Courage of Mehen
Black Adam was powerful enough to fight off the Justice League, JSA, Teen Titans, and a few other hero leagues all at once and by himself. Both him and Captain Marvel are insanely powerful. The only reason why they don't get featured as much is because Captain Marvel used to be owned by another comic company, and Superman is DC's boy. Captain Marvel outsold Superman for many years when he was owned by another company.
Yeah, DC bought captain marvel in order to sink him. Then decided after the fact that he was popular enough to keep him in the limelight. But again, he will always play second fiddle to superman
WoW trailers used to be decent as well, too bad the game sucked. I remember getting suckered back into WoW for the death knight expansion because of how epic the trailer was. The narrative alone was perfect and anyone who played WarCraft III probably got a huge boner. I think I played for a day before never returning to Azeroth again but I still watch and enjoy the trailer sometimes while youtubing.

Do you feel blame? Are you mad? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XREnv...eature=related
A actually stands for Ankle of Achilles
Blur Studio Work | Animation, Design, VFX
it's blur studios, they basically corner the "cinematic intro" field if you as a company don't do it in house.
SWTOR online intro? yep
dragon age intro? yep
dark souls intro? yep
basically if the intro was cool, it's these guys.
If this is going to be a movie about Black Adam, how will they do it justice without BA killing people, lots and lots of people?
Ah, well damn.
no, that's not the horrible thing.
if it is a shazam/captain marvel movie, not only do they have to try to find some poor loser who will never compare to the rock in terms of stature/charisma/screen presence, but then they also have to cast some retard 12 year old boy.
The movie will be fun? How do you have a fun movie with Black Adam in it? He's like the Joker, but has killed 100x the people, and with his bare hands.
Toby Emmerich Says Shazam Movie Will Stand Out By Being Fun
I think you're really misinterpretting what kind of movie they're making here
They've said they wanted it to be more kids friendly. As evidenced by the choice of screenwriter.
I would guess they are wanting something like man of steel for kids. I guess.
Maybe I'm ignorant but is Rock really the perfect actor for a dark character?
I thought he was fantastic in Faster.
He hasn't really been bad in anything, he's just been in bad movies.
Random thought on who should play captain marvel...
luck of the draw goes to bautista with GOTG
and before that?
andre the giant in the princess bride. (dare anyone to name anything else and not get laughed at)
actually i think the rock does pretty well being the butt of the joke, like in be cool and pain and gain.
Not blockbusters, but I really enjoyed The Rundown and Walking Tall. He was good in Pain & Gain and Hercules, and definitely wasn't the reason those weren't good movies. Shit like Tooth Fairy and The Game Plan is really no worse than Kindergarten Cop, Kindergarten Cop just has a funny sound board because of how bad Arnold is with English. When he did the Ladies Man skit in drag on SNL, I about pissed myself laughing.
Unrelated to The Rock, The Longest Yard is a great example of pro wrestlers being great on screen. Kevin Nash in particular, once they swapped his pills, was fucking hysterical.

Rocky 3 and that 3 ninjas movie!
Stop being a slack jawed faggot.
He died early, but he had no time to bleed.
He was a god damned sexual Tyrannosaurus though! Just like me.
5th Element and Friday are Tiny Lister I assume. I don't think he was actually a wrestler by profession until he did that movie with Hulk Hogan(No Holds Barred) where they brought him in to help promote the movie. He's really more an actor that wrestled a little bit than a wrestler that acted.
Also Jerry Lawler did a good job as Jerry Lawler in Man on the Moon.
While you have some great examples, this is not one of them.Blade: Trinity
I always wanted the big show to be the mountain in GoT.
