Actor Zachery Levi is cast as DC's Shazam.
In a surprise move, it was announced that actor Zachery Levi was cast in DC's upcoming Shazam film in the title role. Levi will be taking on the role of Shazam and though many fans seem to be confused by this casting I actually think that Levi can pull it off.
"The actor will star in the DC comic book adaptation Shazam!, which follows a boy named Billy Batson, who can transform into an adult superhero by uttering the magic word "Shazam!" The name is an acronym of the ancient world gods and historical figures Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles and Mercury, from which the big Batson derives his heroic attributes when in adult form."The actor is going to obviously put on some muscle but this is a fact that he is well aware of. On Instagram he spoke about how honored he is to take on the role and the fact that he will be spending a lot of time in the gym.
""Honored and greatly humbled to be a part of the #dcuniverse by bringing the original Captain Marvel to life. I am beside myself with gratitude, not only for this opportunity, but also the incredible outpouring of love and support from so many of you out there in the world. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be in the gym for the rest of forever.""
