Mark Strong Cast as Doctor Sivana in ‘Shazam!’
It seems like everyday we’ve gotten more and more dope news regarding DCEU’s upcoming Shazam! We have an official release date of April 5, 2019, Captain Marvel himself said he wants a Gal Gadot/Wonder Woman cameo, and now it looks like we have a villain officially cast in the film.
Mark Strong revealed that he’ll be playing Doctor Sivana in the movie. Doctor Thaddeus Bodog Sivana is a well-known super villain in the Shazam! comic-book storyline. You may recognize Strong from his role as Sinestro in 2011’s Green Lantern. Check out what the actor had to say about the role below!
“I’m playing an evil bastard called Doctor Sivana, they are always the best characters to play, the most fun. I was Sinestro in Green Lantern which I though was a rather good film but it didn’t do what they wanted so I feel like I’ve got unfinished business in the DC world, I played a pretty evil character in that and he was meant to get even worse in the second one but that never happened but I think I’m going to get the chance to do that in ‘Shazam!’, I hope so.”
Exciting to say the least! What do you guys think of this casting? Let us know in the comments!
Shazam! strikes theaters April 5, 2019!
