Coming in April 2019 is the long-waited for Shazam movie.
It currently stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the villian Black Adam. Black Adam was in the story at one point but now it looks like Shazam and Black Adam will get their own individual films. Henry Gayden (Earth to Echo) is working on the script while David Sandberg (Lights Out, Annabelle: Creation) will be directing Shazam. Pre-production and casting is underway with an early 2018 production date being the goal.
Many comic fans should know that Shazam is part of a bigger team/family of Shazam-power-granted characters. Judging by casting, we will see Billy’s family but it’s unknown if we’ll see their super-powered alter egos as well.

BLACK ADAM FAMILY
Everyone knows that The Rock has been announced to play Black Adam…But there is no word though if any of the other members of his “family” will be in the movie. Again, like the Marvel/Shazam family, it’s still fun to fan-cast anyways!
ISIS (Adrianna Tomaz)
I’ll be honest, it was hard to fan-cast Isis, it was especially harder to find any Egyptian actresses! I wouldn’t be surprised if The Rock had some say in who they cast and have an actress he previously worked with cast. If you have any other ideas, let me know in either the comments or poll!
*UPDATE – Odette Annable removed due to casting in Supergirl.*
OSIRIS (Amon Tomaz)
Amon is the brother of Adrianna who was enslaved at a young age (resulting in Isis and Black Adam searching for him). Black Adam granted power to Amon so every time he said Black Adam, he would turn into Osiris, completing the Black Marvel/Adam family. At one point he was part of the Teen Titans and Deathstroke’s team, but I’m not sure we’ll see that storyline. Who would you cast?
