Dear Warner Bros. Studios, the DC Cinematic Universe is shaping up nicely–FINALLY! Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Shazam are brokering the way to a whole slew of films we cannot wait for. From those anticipated films “Black Adam,” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, is at the top of the list, telling the tale of how Shazam’s most powerful enemy rose to power. In the film, however, two superheroes are expected to begin their stories, Hawkman and Hawkgirl!

Hawkman vs. Black Adam

As you may not know Hawkman and Hawkgirl are one of comics’ most iconic couples and its symbol of star-crossed love. The heroes are blessed and cursed with resurrection and reincarnation where each life they fall for each other, die, and retain their memories from all of their previous lives. In their current lives they are superheroes powered by “Nth metal,” an alien element that grants its users to enhanced strength, fly at supersonic speeds (when grafted to artificial wings) protecting them from cold and heat, and it disrupts magic. Hawkman and Hawkgirl are highly adept with a number of weapons but prefer to use archaic weapons like swords, spears, and maces.

The Hawks cross paths with Black Adam originally in Ancient Egypt in the first lives where they are its rulers and are exposed to Nth Metal granting their souls reincarnation. Black Adam, known as Teth-Adam then, is the protector of the country, and is the champion of the original Shazam. He becomes corrupt and seeks to have the very people protect worship him as a god and is exiled deep into space where it takes him thousands of years to fly back to Earth–present day. Now, Black Adam has to deal with not only The Hawks, but (wizard) Shazam’s new champion, the current superhero, Shazam.

We really hope this is true. Warner Bros. has stated another Justice League movie will happen in the future and it would be nice to have Hawkman and Hawkgirl on the team. They add some needed skill to the team. What do you all think of them appearing in the “Black Adam” movie? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

The fate of the X-Men and “mutantkind” is currently unknown in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). However, that is not stopping fans from pushing for singer Taylor Swift to be cast as the mutant superhero Dazzler!

Dazzler

Alison Blaire, AKA “Dazzler” was a mainstay of the X-Men during the eighties. She is a mutant born with the ability of photokinesis (light manipulation) by transmuting sound into light; allowing her to create anything from disorienting strobe light effects, energy blasts, laser beams, and even project holograms.

Like Taylor, Dazzler was also a pop star. Before she joined the X-Men she was a singer, and the character’s real world origin is unique in being she is the only comic book character who was created jointly by a comic book company and record label, Marvel Comics and Casablanca Records, respectively. Swift also looks like Dazzler; check out the fan art of her as Dazzler below!

Normally we do not agree with fan castings but we wholeheartedly support Taylor Swift being Dazzler if she and Marvel are both up to it! This, however, would not mark Dazzler’s first live action appearance. As you recall in X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019) she made a brief appearance, portrayed by actress Halston Sage.

There she appeared in a scene in the woods when the young X-Men were celebrating saving a team of astronauts. Dazzler performed, providing her own lighting. We definitely think had the franchise continued her character would have taken center stage in a following moving.

Fans everywhere are just waiting for the X-Men to join the MCU officially, and Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige has vocalized the character appearing alongside The Avengers or even The Guardians of The Galaxy.

What do you all think of this casting push? Are you here for Taylor as Dazzler or not? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

“Justice League” actor Ray Fisher, who was offered a cameo role last June to appear as Cyborg in “The Flash” solo movie, publicly stated he did not want to be involved with the project via Twitter, hence the character of Cyborg has been written out of the screenplay and will not be recast, according to insiders with knowledge of the situation.

Fisher publicly resigned from the role last week in his continuing beef with DC Films President Walter Hamada, who is overseeing “The Flash.” The actor tweeted on Dec. 30, “Walter Hamada is the most dangerous kind of enabler. He lies, and WB PR’s failed Sept. 4th hit-piece sought to undermine the very real issues of the Justice League investigation.”

Fisher added in his tweet, “I will not participate in any production associated with him.” Of note, Hamada did not oversee the “Justice League” production and was not the head of DC Films at the time, nor was he employed during the film’s initial release.

Hamada first joined DC Films back in 2018 and lead the division to the release of its highest-grossing film to date, 2018’s “Aquaman,” which banked over $1.4 billion at the worldwide box office. On Tuesday, it was announced that Hamada had reupped his deal as president until 2023. Fisher called the news “reactionary” in a tweet later that day.

We hate to see Ray Fisher leave the DCEU; but as fanboys we hate to see Cyborg will not be appearing in The Flash film. As we posted in a previous article there are a number of young Black actors who should have been recast for this role, even if it was just a cameo.

As you may recall, Ray has been quite vocal with his distaste for the executives and directors over the superhero films at Warner Bros.; alleging racism, favortism, and non-professionalism.

There is no news yet in who they may be eyeing for Cyborg, but it will be necessary. The hero has come to prominence over the years as a mainstay of The Justice League and was set to have a standalone film in the coming years.

Superhero roles are quite coveted in Hollywood nowadays. Here is a short list of who we think would make a great candidate for Victor Stone/Cyborg:

daniel ezra

Daniel Ezra

Daniel Ezra plays “Spencer James” on The CW’s “All-American.” There he plays a gifted football player, something Victor Stone was before his accident spurred his father to save his life with cybernetics. Daniel definitely would bring some serious muscle to this hero.

da'vinchi

Da’Vinchi

Da’Vinchi is an amazing young actor with the looks and physique to play Cyborg. Like Daniel Ezra he too plays a gifted football, and on Freeform’s grown-ish he was basketball star, “Cash Mooney.” We stan for Da’Vinchi he’d be bring some rather suave and debonair qualities to Cyborg.

niles fitch

Niles Fitch

Niles Fitch’s fame hails from being the teen and young adult version of “Randal Pearson” from NBC’s hit series, This Is Us. Niles has already played a superhero of sorts in Disney’s “Second Born Royals” and definitely can do all the athletic feats it requires to be Cyborg!
