Shazam: Green Lantern’s Mark Strong In Talks to Play Villain, Doctor Sivana

Mark Strong (Green Lantern, Kingsman: The Secret Service) is reportedly “in talks” to play the villainous Dr. Sivana in New Line Cinema’s upcoming adaptation of the DC Comics superhero Shazam.

According to TheWrap’s report, Sivana looks to be the villain of the Shazam! movie. Created for 1940’s Whiz Comics #2, the character has served as the most frequent antagonist for the titular DC hero. Originally a good-natured scientist, humanity drove Sivana to madness, and eventually to the planet Venus. Returning to Earth as a villain, Sivana used his plethora of gadgets and inventions in battle with the entire Marvel Family, which is reproted to play a key role in the upcoming DCEU film.

It now seems Sivana will take place of Black Adam as the film’s central villain.
