We now have our Billy Batson to go along with SHAZAM

WE Day California, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 27 Apr 2017

Well the question of who will be the kid side of the Childlike superhero SHAZAM has been answered.

Asher Angel has been cast as Billy Batson opposite Zachary Levi in New Line’s DC superhero film “Shazam!,” as the story broke from Variety.

SHAZAM! follows a boy (Angel) who can transform into an adult superhero by uttering the magic word “Shazam!” in case you were what wondering what SHAZAM stands for. It is an acronym of the ancient gods and historical figures Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury, .

Mark Strong is in talks for the role of the villain, & Grace Fulton is set to play one of Angel’s friends.

David F. Sandberg of “Lights Out” is directing, with a screenplay by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. “Annabelle: Creation’s” Peter Safran will produce.

In case you’re wondering where does this next superhero fall on the film production slate. “Shazam!” will be the next DC Cinematic Universe movie to begin shooting, before  “Flashpoint,” (which still.doesnt habe a director) the Joss Whedon-directed “Batgirl,” and the “Suicide Squad” sequel, which Gavin O’Connor just came aboard to helm. There is also going to be standalone film about Black Adam, Shazam’s arch nemesis. Dwayne Johnson is attached to play Black Adam in that pic. But as of now is not set to be in the shale film only his own solo Black Adam project.

 

“Sinestro” may end up in SHAZAM

Maybe not the villain Sinestro directly but the man who portrayed him may be facing DC’s latest hero to join the film world.

In an EXCLUSIVE from The Wrap

Mark Strong is in talks to play DC Comics villain Doctor Sivana in New Line’s “Shazam,” TheWrap has exclusively learned.

Strong is no stranger to DC as the actor has previously play villain Sinestro in 2011’s “Green Lantern” opposite then Green Lantern Ryan Reynolds.

Known as Shazam’s archenemy and most frequent foe, in 2009, Doctor Sivana was ranked as IGN’s 82nd Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time. In the most recent run of DC Comics the New 52 that “Shazam,” is loosely based on,  Sivana is depicted as a respected scientistdesperate to save his family from an unknown plight. With science having failed him, he turns to magic. Doctor Sivana’s team finds what he believes to be the tomb of Black Adam; while attempting to open it, the scientist is half-blinded by magical lightning to the face (which has the side-effect of letting him see magic).

David Sandberg, the horror filmmaker behind “Lights Out” and “Annabelle: Creation,” will direct the film. Filming will begin in February 2018 for a likely 2019 release.

Zachary Levi joined the cast last week and will play “Shazam.”

Strong, who won an Oliver for “A View From the Bridge” and was last seen in “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” next up has eight-part espionage thriller “Deep State,” for Fox Networks Group. Strong stars as Max Easton, a retired Secret Service operative and member of elite British/America team called The Section, coaxed back into the field to try to shut down an Iranian missile program.

Could we potentially see Dwayne Johnson’s “Black Adam” make an appearance of any other heroes of the DCEU?

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.
