Shazam Has A Release Date

The very intriguing upcoming DC film, Shazam, starring Zach Levi of Chuck fame, looks like it’s found it’s launching pad.

As previously mentioned on the site, David Sandberg will be directing, and now we have confirmed that the movie’s April 5, 2019 release date will be nestled nicely right between Marvel’s Captain Marvel which comes out in March, and Avengers 4, which drops in May.

For DC’s sake, they will hopefully ride both a successful Aquaman at the end of 2018 and a well-performing Captain Marvel to continued interest in heroes called that at some point, that gets them a lot of ticket sales. Tell us how you think it will do!

Prepare All The Steroids – Zachary Levi Is Playing Shazam

In what may be the start of a series of bad ideas, Warner Brothers has tapped Zachary Levi, best known from his run on NBC’s Chuck, to be Shazam. Not a lot of details have been released so far, but Levi is going to need to put on a little weight to play the hero who is a combination of 6 great gods (Solomon, Hercules, Achilles, Zeus, Atlas and Mercury.)

The movie is directed by David Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation) and will come in 2019, giving Levi plenty of time to add a few pounds.
