Batman: The Brave and the Bold (2008-2011)
Episode 36: “The Power of Shazam!” (2 April 2010)
So, with very little fanfare, DC confirmed one of the worst-kept secrets in Hollywood a few days ago: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be involved in the DC Cinematic Universe. Specifically, he will be given the opportunity to choose to play either Shazam (formerly known as Captain Marvel) or his arch nemesis, Black Adam. Personally, I hope he chooses Shazam. His personality and charisma are much more suited to playing a hero (or a very particular kind of villain who seems like a good guy, like his role in the Get Smart remake), plus it would probably mean having him around for much, much longer, which can only possibly be a good thing for the young DC Cinematic Universe.
So, in this episode of The Brave and the Bold, Batman teams up with Captain Marvel (now known as Shazam). First, we see the supervillain scientist Dr. Sivana trying to drain Captain Marvel’s powers. Later, Batman and Captain Marvel are ambushed by the aforementioned Black Adam and Sivana who are now working together, and Captain Marvel is gagged before he can yell “Shazam!” to activate his powers!
