With comic book movies being such a hot topic across the board, casting is sometimes a perfect match or a Hollywood nightmare. Here anymore no one really makes their bones as an action star until they have been cast in a comic book role.
Here are my choices
1. Patrick Warburton
He already looks the part and he is a comedic actor. A big part of this character is a big kid pretty much, so who better than this guy.
2. Brandon Molale
Has had bit parts in a little bit of everything. So this could be a make or break officially for DC and Brandon's career.
3. Karl Urban
A very hot ticketed fan cast choice. He is well known as an action star badass. He's got the build and the height for Shazam!. He has a dry sense of humor but potential for good comedy if given the chance.
4. Kellan Lutz
A ladies heart throb. He's got the build and action status. He was also a Hercules. It would be interesting to see the two clash on the big screen. He's had parts here and there, but in my opinion never a stand out role. Shahan could be that role. We know he can be funny by his roles in accepted.
5. Adam Baldwin
A well known actor for his supporting roles. Yes he may be considered too old, but he still has it. The voice of superman in superman doomsday. He'd be a perfect fit to be the other superman. He can be funny and he's already established as an action star.
6. Henry Rollins
Yes I choose Henry Rollins as my sixth pick. He is a bit older than a desired super hero. With a little hair dye and a little make up it'll be okay. The point is, is that he is jacked , and can be very funny. With a wide range of characters under his belt he'd be a good fit.
These are my picks for Shazam!. I know it's typically 5 or 10. To me these 6 are the best choices. If I've forgotten any feel free to comment below with your choices. I don't believe in bringing back former DC and Marvel cast members to new roles. Yes I know Dredd and The Tick were previous comic roles but in my opinion that's a bit different.
