Mark Strong to play Sivana in Shazam!

An archenemy of Shazam, Sivana is known for his intellect and skills at manipulation

Published: 16th January 2018

While it was revealed last year that Mark Strong is in talks for a role in the upcoming DC comics film Shazam!, it's now confirmed that the actor will be playing the role of Doctor Sivana. An archenemy of Shazam, Sivana is known for his intellect and skills at manipulation. 

Talking about the role, "I'm playing an evil b*****d called Doctor Sivana, they are always the best characters to play, the most fun. I was Sinestro in Green Lantern which I thought was a rather good film, but it didn't do as well as expected, 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. I hope I'm going to get the chance to do that in Shazam!" 

Set to hit the screens on April 2019, Shazam! is directed by David F Sandberg and stars Zachary Levi as Shazam and Asher Angel as Billy Batson.
