Mark Strong in Talks to Play Villain Doctor Sivana in ‘Shazam!’
Now that Shazam! has finally found its leading man in Zachary Levi, producers are trying to find the perfect villain.
The Wrap is reporting that Kingsman star Mark Strong is in talks to play the film’s villain Doctor Sivana.
Sivana was a scientist who went mad, left Earth, then returned as a bad guy. He’s fought Shazam a lot over the years, often using his crazy inventions.
Shazam! is set to be DC’s next movie to go into production, with filming beginning in February.
Originally Black Adam, as played by Dwayne Johnson, was going to be the big bad, however, it was decided to give that character his own solo movie.
Strong is no stranger to being the villain of comic book movies. He previously played Sinestro in Green Lantern.
Directed by David F. Sandberg and starring Zachary Levi, Shazam! is scheduled for release April 2019.
