However, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will not appear in ‘Shazam!’
Thor actor Zachary Levi has been cast as the lead character in forthcoming DC movie Shazam!
Levi appeared as Fandral in the most recent two films in the Marvel franchise, including Thor: Ragnarok. He has also starred in TV series Chuck and Tangled.
As Movieweb reports, Shazam! has been in development for a while and, while Levi’s casting has been confirmed, there are still holes to be filled in the cast list. Although Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had been courted to play the role of Black Adam, he will not appear in the movie.
Shazam! will be directed by David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation) and will follow Billy Batson, who turns into the titular superhero by saying “shazam”. The film is currently set for release on April 5, 2019.
Fan artist BossLogic, meanwhile, has shared a first look at what Levi as Shazam could look like. You can see his interpretation below.
