I've posted something similar to this in a Thread about Uncasted DC Characters. I did Shazam/Billy Batson. For Billy I chose the kid from Diary Of A Wimpy Kid Zachary Gordon for Shazam I chose Channing Tatum. Anyone like the Idea and/or think he could pull it off. Hell maybe they will bring The Rock back to play Black Adam.

I could "see it", but his acting is still questionable to me.

#4 Edited by laidblack (779 posts) - - Show Bio

No. He's a decent actor at best.

I dislike Channing Tatum as much as the next person who doesn't find him sexually attractive. But the only thing he's really good at is looking like an imbecile and let's be honest, if DC made a Shazam movie he'd be very childlike. I could definitely see it and kinda support it. So, okay -- Tatum/Shazam, Johnson/Adam.

Hmm I would have to see it to believe it!!

I'd actually dig it because New 52 Shazam has been a terribly childish brat. Tatum pulls off immature idiot rather well.

Would you all agree it should be an older, maybe teenage Billy?

Tatum has admitted to saying he's not a good actor just that he gets around through good looks and being a beefcake.But I can sort of see him as Shazam

Only if Shazam can pop and lock like a boss.

#15 Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt (12591 posts) - - Show Bio

I could see him pulling off New 52 Shazam

I highly doubt there will ever be a Shazam movie, especially one set in the MoS universe

I could see him portraying "The Big Red Cheese".

I could actually see it. He was awesome in 21 JS and he behaved like a teenager there, I think he'd be awesome in the role and he's got enough following to make it a hit. Him as Cap and Rock as BA and the movie will be huge success.

I don't know why people are knocking Tatum's acting skills, Cavill isn't the greatest actor either.....

F#$k NO! I don't want to see his ugly face or hear his ugly voice!

I'd rather see Mr. Potatohead as Shazam than this guy.

#25 Posted by ccraft (5077 posts) - - Show Bio

I wouldn't want to see Shazam in a live action movie, but the cast looks about right.

Why?

@rustyroy: I like Shazam, but I just don't think it would work well in a cbm. You would need a good kid actor too.

I think he'll work better than most heroes actually. He's origin is more interesting than Aquaman and Wonder Woman's IMO. And there's some really good kid actors in Hollywood.

@rustyroy: I guess anything is possible, but I would give other characters their own movie before I would Shazam.

#30 Posted by KingAres109 (1252 posts) - - Show Bio

At first I thought you were saying he should play Billy.. And I was going to say comic fans should NEVER make casting decisions!!And I still can't really see him playing Shazam..

#31 Edited by Erik (31695 posts) - - Show Bio

Sure, I guess it fits.

One of the worst actors with inexplicable popularity taking on the role of one of the worst superheroes with inexplicable popularity.

#32 Posted by AllStarSuperman (20304 posts) - - Show Bio

It could actually work very well

#33 Posted by Pperspectiveandreality (1800 posts) - - Show Bio

How about DC gives us a Shazam comic first

Works for me. *shrug*

Black Adam.

Am I doing it right?

#37 Posted by Ostyo (6787 posts) - - Show Bio

Nah, Shazam needs actually talent for the movie to suceed. Same goes even more so for Billy.
