4. Hero vs Anti-Hero
Shazam vs Black Adam, the villain has been cast. Bravo to that! Let’s get on to our hero.
5. Who Should Star as Shazam?
Shazam, was originally known as Captain Marvel, he’s the alter ego of a boy named Billy Batson. When Billy speaks the magic word, ‘Shazam’ he transforms into the super hero with the power of six mythological figures.
6. Jason Momoa
If you watch GOT you know Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo, he would be the perfect hero to Dwayne Johnson’s anti-hero. He has the looks, stature and acting chops to go toe-to-toe with The Rock.
7. Joe Manganiello
Joe, Joe, Joe…need I say more. Joe Manganiello was the perfect werewolf, Alcide Herveaux in True Blood. I say shave the beard and there you have it, Captain Marvel in the flesh.
8. Channing Tatum
Channing Tatum has been named People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive.’ He flashed his killer, moves in, ‘Magic Mike.’ Can he save the day as the lead super-hero, that has yet to be proven.
