About the cast of Shazam movie.

This is interesting News, thanks for posting.
The most notable thing about this news is that the movie will likely very much lean into Billy Batson’s life as a kid instead of ignoring that for the sake of super heroics, especially since the other Marvel family members may not be getting the same powers as Billy this time around. The young – and very diverse – cast of kids will easily make this one of the most unique movies in the DCEU so far, with all the other entries focusing on adult heroes and barely featuring kids, aside from occasional flashbacks to the hero’s childhood.

You're welcome buddy!
Yeah, i agree with you. I like to see Billy and Shazam on a movie, in fact it's about time somebody think to give a chance to this unique character.

Yeah, I was pretty dissapointed by Dc. They gave the character an entire new origin at the start of the New 52 and then did nothing with the character aside from having him appear im events etc At least a miniseries would have been nice.

Yeah! This character deserves more. Likewise, in this situation is Zatanna and Plas! I see a lot of potential in them, but sadly DC don't.

Cool.

Seems like they were inspired by the New 52 origin. Or are they just using the text for the audition? I think there were parts I don´t remember from Johns´ comic...

Zachary Levi certainly has the looks and the height, he just needs to really bulk up. Not sure if he can manage that though with only 4 months remaining until shooting starts. I think he was chosen for the sake of the more light hearted/comedic route they are taking, which is appropriate given that this is Billy Batson. I'm excited to see what he will look like as the character.

Not really feeling the casting. Zachary Levi doesn't have the look at all, but some good make-up and costuming might be able to work wonders. His acting is OK and he did well enough as Fandral in the second Thor movie. I wouldn't have picked him and I'm iffy on the choice, but we'll see.

Like ARB said, they probably picked him because of the comedic route the movie is going.

Yeah, agreed ^^ That is probably true for every actor who wants to play a classic hero like Superman, Batman, Shazam etc...

One of the main reasons why I didn´t like Christain Bale that much was that he didn´t look physically imposing enough. You can say that this is a shallow reason to criticize an actor, but film is a visual medium and Batman espacially should be very intimidating to look at.

Grace Fulton is in negotiations to join New Line’s DC superhero film “Shazam!” starring Zachary Levi, sources tell Variety.
Fulton will play one of Batson’s friends. The Wrap also reports that Mark Strong is in talks for the role of the villain.
