January 30th, 2018 by Marc Comments

The Shazam! movie is officially filming in Atlanta!

Oh, yes!

Director David F Sandberg put out the following tweet revealing that the movie is filming and is using the codename Franklin.

We fully expect to hear more and see loads over the coming months… seriously, we would love to see the suit as soon as possible and we reckon, with rumours of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman all possibly set to appear, it could be fun times ahead.

The movie will star Asher Dov Angel as Billy Batson, Zachary Levi as Shazam! and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana and will be released on April 5th, 2019.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
