We reported a few days ago that Warners and DC are moving ahead with the Shazam movie and now Dwyane Johnston, who will star as the villainous Black Adam, has added to the conversation.
The actor has been tweeting about how fun his meeting was at Warners and how the DC Cinematic Universe is set to turn to brighter times after the darkness of Batman V Superman is out of the way:

Soon after, Geoff Johns himself replied:

On top of this, Ben Affleck, Batman/Bruce Wayne in the new movie universe had this to say about the change in tone that we will see starting to kick off with Justice League this November: “Justice League, you probably saw the teaser that came out of Comic-Con; I thought it is nicely emblematic of the kind of minor tone shift and segue in storytelling. It’s a little bit lighter, the characters are a little bit more comfortable in themselves, so they can express a wider array of emotions. And there are just more people in it, so it’s more fun. It’s all of these different characters bumping up against each other and the team dynamic offers a lot of dramatic possibility.”
