Warner Bros. -DC Entertainment's "Shazam!" has got a release date.

The Commuter - Official Trailer | Liam Neeson | Vera Farmiga | Patrick Wilson
Still, The Commuter gives fans of B-level entertainment exactly what they want, and it's hard to fault any film that does that. Liam Neeson has built his late career around being your dad, or rather, the power fantasy that your dad wishes he were.

As announced by The Hollywood Reporter, Zachary Levi has been cast as the title character in Shazam!, the film adaptation of the popular DC comic book series. Billy is able to transform into the hero by uttering the magic word "Shazam!". However, a lot has changed with the DCEU in the years since, and for a while it was unclear if Shazam would still make that date, although DC and Warner Bros held onto that spot in case they wanted to release a different DC Comics movie then. The film has also reportedly cast Mark Strong (The Kingsman franchise) as its as-yet-unidentified villain and has David F. Samberg (Lights Out) as director. Billy's long lost sister will be played by Grace Fulton. Cooper Andrews will play the foster parent at the group home where Billy lives named Victor Vasquez. "[Shazam!] is about a kid who becomes an adult superhero, so that's just gonna be so fun to explore". "To be honest, it was not a superhero I grew up with either", he explained.

May's cabinet reshuffle in shambles after yet another resignation
European Union officials have shot back at complaints from David Davis over their reported preparation for a "no-deal" Brexit . A much-anticipated reshuffle of May's cabinet did little more than demonstrate the prime minister's weakness.

But for rest of the DCEU too, with the sole exception of last January's huge success Wonder Woman, has not exactly done any wonders. And she seems like a really cool broad. She's a mom. And I'm like, 'You seem like you're grounded and cool, and you're Wonder Woman, and you rock.' And I think it would be really amusing to have the 14-year-old Billy Batson inside of Shazam that's really awkward around this handsome Amazonian. "I think [it] might be a good thing that I'm doing it, because I know what you need to learn". No other movies are scheduled for that opening weekend yet, though some of the other notable April 2019 releases include The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, a third Planes movie from Disney and Pet Sematary.
