Mark Strong: 'I'm playing the villain in Shazam!'

Now we all know that at last year's Comic-Con Geoff Johns announced that Black Adam would not be appearing in "Shazam!" but that was before Walter Hamada became the new President of DC-Based Film Production.

The biggest surprise, however, is a single line teasing a "mysterious man" who serves as Shazam's underling.

Like pretty much every comic book character, Doctor Sivana has undergone many changes over the years.

"Evil sorcerer who regenerates from death with world domination on his mind".

"I'm playing an evil bastard called Doctor Sivana, they are always the best characters to play, the most fun", Strong told Contact Music, confirming his casting in the Shazam! "When he does not return her love, she changes loyalties and helps Billy out". Especially, with the addition of Thor: Ragnarok's Zachary Levi and Dwayne Johnson's villainous role, the Shazam! movie has been picking up steam.

MAGNIFICUS SIVANA - "Sivana's incredibly giant and strong son that has a huge battle with Shazam".

Mark Strong has revealed the scripts on 'Shazam!' have encrypted technology which makes the text disappear if you stop reading for "20 seconds".

And Strong - who is best known for his roles in films "Kingsman: The Secret Service", "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" - has been getting ready for the start of the shoot by pushing himself in the gym so he can do as many of his stunts as possible.

First reported by That Hashtag Show, Dwayne Johnson's musclebound anti-hero has been earmarked for a spinoff movie of his own, though Shazam! director David F. Sandberg chose to remove Adam from the Billy Batson origin story in fear that Johnson's charismatic baddie would overshadow - or at the very least undermine - Billy's transformation into the titular, god-like entity.

MYSTERIOUS MAN - "Shazam's underling".

The 54-year-old English actor is to play villain Doctor Sivana in the DC Extended Universe movie about teenage boy Billy Baston who can transform into adult superhero Captain Marvel when he utters the word which is the film's title.

Strong as Doctor Sivana will be unveiled once "Shazam!" hits the theaters on April. 5, 2019.
