Yesterday saw it confirmed that Mark Strong is playing the villain of the Shazam! movie with Dr. Thaddeus Bodog Sivana.
”I’m playing an evil bastard called Doctor Sivana, they are always the best characters to play, the most fun.” Mark Strong said at the Cirque du Soleil ‘OVO’ at The Royal Albert Hall in London. “I was Sinestro in Green Lantern, which I though was a rather good film, but it didn’t do what they wanted. So I feel like I’ve got unfinished business in the DC world. I played a pretty evil character in that, and he was meant to get even worse in the second one but that never happened, but I think I’m going to get the chance to do that in Shazam!, I hope so.”
Mark Strong also teased that his Doctor Sivana will have powers, and now Boss Logic has whipped up some fan art.
