Shazam Movie Gets Neck Snapped by Man of Steel

Director Peter Segal says a Shazam movie is unlikely now that Superman is riding high.

That's the sound of the hopes and dreams of Shazam fans as the prospect of a movie starring the superhero formerly known as Captain Marvel are broken in half like Zod's neck, both at the hands of the terror known as Superman. According to Peter Segal, who was once attached to direct a Shazam movie, now that Superman is no longer an epic failure like he was after Bryan Singer's borefest, Superman Returns, flopped, there may be no room for another "Superman" in a red suit in the marketplace. According to Segal, the two characters are too similar, and DC will have trouble finding a place for both of them, though we were unaware that Shazam was also a badass, grim and gritty, neck-snapping antihero. If nothing else, at least Mark Waid will be spared the agony of having to yell at a movie screen when Shazam rips the spinal cord out of Black Adam and yells "FATALITY!" in a big screen adaptation.
