Mark Strong may have been the only saving grace of 2011’s Green Lantern, but now he’s back as a different villain for the DCEU, Doctor Sivana. We have yet to get any official looks for the characters of Shazam!, but we now have a set video that pits Strong’s Sivana against Zachary Levi’s Captain Marvel.

We don’t know yet the extent of Sivana’s powers in the movie, but any comic book movie fan knows that Mark Strong can play one intimidating villain. I just have my fingers crossed that he actually survives the end of the movie. For one, I don’t want to see a child murder someone, and I also want to see more comic book villains survive more than one movie.
The Shazam! movie promises to be a more light-hearted romp compared to other DCEU installments, and some are even going so far as to call it the first DCEU comedy film. I’m already excited for the film, but I think the hype will be at an all-time high once we get our first trailer for the movie.
After the DCEU shakeup, it seems that Shazam! was the only project that went along smoothly; well, that and Wonder Woman 2. Let’s hope 2019 will be a more merciful year to Warner Bros and the DCEU.
Shazam! is set to hit theaters April 5, 2019.
