Killer words

Would this have the same "force" if will were used instead of shall?

“… I shall no longer announce to anyone when I commit my murders, they shall look like routine robberies, killings of anger and a few fake accidents, etc…”

Well it depends on what you think, I prefere the word shall over will.
I think it has more "force".

But it's a matter of opinion.

It projects more force,more authority,more respect if you like...
It's like Gandalf saying 'You shall not pass'(total nerd...)
You get the meaning...
