Do we have a director... and for which film?
Collider is reporting that David F. Sandberg is in talks with New Line and Seven Bucks to helm one of the Shazam movies. It is unclear if he will direct Black Adam or World's Mightiest Mortal. Considering Brad Peyton was a lock for Black Adam, it is very likely Sandberg may direct the Captain Marvel movie. If so, it seems probable World's Mightiest Mortal and Black Adam will be released a few months apart. On the other hand, Sandberg seems more natural for the Black Adam film, so maybe he's edging Peyton out in the negotiations. Once verified, we can expect casting announcements to start coming at a fast pace. This is what we've been waiting for... unless of course the project derailed again, which considering its history, is not out of the question.
