After a few years of dragging behind Marvel, DC has started fast tracking more of their properties into films. Both The Flash and Green Lantern have new directors. And after years of being rumored as the title role for the Captain Marvel movie, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been cast as the villain Black Adam. He's a great fit for Black Adam but now one wonders who'll play Captain Marvel himself. Meanwhile Wonder Woman is on hold again. Then there's that quasi-CGI Justice League movie which I'm not really looking forward to. The Flash and Green Lantern are supposed to tie into the Justice League. All that means is the same actors will play the same characters in the movies, as opposed to Superman and Batman who won't be played by Brandon Routh and Christian Bale. But uh, hey The Rock is Black Adam. That's something to be pleased about.
