Oh yeah I did see that and he was quite good. I don't know though, I'm sure there are other actors that could get me even more excited

The Joseph Campbell stuff is a great fit for a non-established Superman's origin arc. Snyder is just a klutz with it.

A Reddit user (I know) is saying that Black Adam will be the villain in MOS2 and Shazam is currently off the table.

In all honesty it wouldn't shock me.

I tend to think the reddit report about Black Adam is BS, though I wouldn't put it pass WB to once again come up with the idea of having Superman share yet another film a primarily non-Superman character or villain.

I tend to think if Vaughn is the frontrunner he'd likely want to do his own thing and not be bound by WB execs " lets make a deal!" ideas.

That said, the idea of Johnson playing an actual primary Superman villain like Metallo, Mongul, Parasite, etc, would be badass imo.

Superman v the Rock sells a movie, whether it's the Supes movie, the Black Adam movie, or the JL sequel (Legion of Doom?), so I could definitely see WB pushing for it.

I sorta wish it coulda been Supes vs Lobo in a Warworld movie, especially after seeing that glorious Ragnarok teaser, but hey, I think the Rock could do well as Black Adam too.

It's definitely a side of Superman we haven't seen yet on screen which might be fun

Momoa should have been Lobo. He was born to play that role and from the looks of it, his Aquaman is basically going to be Lobo with a trident.

^random post but whatever.

I like momoa as Aquaman. As a Polynesian guy he had a really interesting take on Aquaman which made me say "oh this movie is going to be really cool"

I think it's BS too. And I don't want it either because, as you said, Superman would be sharing his movie with a non-Superman character again.. But I guess Superman could turn up in Black Adam or Shazam's movie...

I hope they don't restrict Vaughn to that.

Yeah, it wouldn't work. Not to mention that Superman and BA don't share a single memorable story together.

Vaughn could still begin filming this year, probably in the fall, for a 2019 release. But that's if he finalizes the deal, hash out a script with Jane Goldman, and start prepping immediately.

He'll probably take his time developing the story if he signs on like he did with the two Kingsman sequels. But it's possible he's mulling WB's offer and discussing story ideas with Ms. Goldman.

Superman/Shazam: Return of Black Adam wasn't a comic but it was a great short movie that could easily serve as the basis of a live action movie

I liked it because it was Clark/Superman guest-starring in a Shazam story. It was a good intro to Billy Batson. It showed some of his life as an orphan, and Clark was a good fit as someone trying to help Billy. It actually could be cool to see Superman appear in a Shazam! movie in a similar way.

That's different than some character like Black Adam from another DC universe coming into Superman's movie yet again whose backstory has to be explained and the focus taken off Superman's world.

Anyway, this is a reddit rumour. I don't know why it is being given so much credence.

I think Superman appearing in a Black Adam or Shazam! movie would be better and help those movies more than Black Adam appearing in Superman's.

It's more than a reddit rumor. The rumors started when Henry and Dwayne took a photo together. Dwayne has gone on record saying he wants to fight Superman on screen. Then Dwayne made those comments about the huge surprise in store for the Black Adam movie.

The reddit rumor was an educated guess

I'd say this is beyond being a possibility given the Rock's star power and his pull. If he truly, truly wants this thing to go down, somehow it'll be arranged.

I saw that photo. I still think it is more for the Shazam/Black Adam franchise.

The reddit rumor seems entirely based on that photo and some vague comments and nothing solid.

Still not really digging the idea for the Superman movie.

Yes the future of Superman and DCEU should be in the hands of The Rock and his whims.

I'm not digging the idea either. Like I said before, Dwayne playing another actual Superman rogue like Metallo, Parasite, Mongul , etc, I'd be fine with, but the idea of trying to resolve two stalled projects by combining them isn't gonna make it imo.

Right on. It's Superman, people. Not "Black Adam v Superman: Dwayne The Rock Johnson."

Having seen Wonder Woman I got to say it has a lot of the components I'd like to see in a MOS 2.

Probably the biggest is the heart of the movie. The emotional beats really hit in a way I felt they didn't for Superman in MOS/BVS.

Also Superman needs to have a big rousing moment of pure heroic triumph ala No Man's Land sequence.

Nothing in MOS or BVS really had that same impact on me. The BVS Superman saving people montage just didn't quite hit the mark.

I agree. I'm hoping that Wonder Woman's success convinces WB that a Superman film done right could work - that it doesn't have to be either a romance like Donner or darker/grim/cynical like BvS.

Also, I definitely don't want Superman vs. Black Adam. It could work in a more developed DCEU, down the road. But Supes needs to take those last few steps to becoming Supes (i.e., truth and justice).
