'The Commuter' star discusses his role in 'Watchmen' and playing a villain ahead of his 'Aquaman' debut.
Note: This commentary contains spoilers for the movie “Justice League”. When “Superman” came out in 1978 starring Christopher Reeve as the title character, it promised audiences that they would believe a man could fly. Although other superhero films had come before it, “Superman” was the first major one to have a budget befitting a superhero movie.
The superhero ‘Shazam!’ will be played by two actors. Digital de-ageing has become one of the big Hollywood special effects, with Iron Man’s younger self appearing in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ thanks to the technology. Beginning with the de-ageing of Jeff Bridges in ‘Tron: Legacy’, it’s become Hollywood’s latest impressive visual effect… but while ‘Shazam!’ will feature a young boy with the power to turn into a fully-grown superhero, it looks as though two actors will portray the iconic comic book hero and his younger alter-ego.
