there is finally a face to Shazam. HollywoodReporter reports that Zachary Levi has been hired to give life to the superhero of DC in the project that prepares David F. Sandberg. The signing is surprising and has a certain morbid curiosity because, until now, Levi was part of the cast of Marvel; played Fandral in ‘Thor: The dark world’ and ‘Thor: Ragnarok’.
Levi is known for leading the series ‘Chuck’, put the voice to Flynn in ‘Enredados’ (‘Tangled’) and was the villain of ‘Heroes: Reborn’, among other works. Let’s remember that Warner takes wanting to make the movie ‘Shazam!’ from the last decade and in 2014 he managed to Dwyane Johnson to give life to the villain, Black Adam, but it is now when they finally have a director and star to bring the comic book to the big screen.
The bullet above serves to summarize roughly, who is this hero of DC: a boy named Billy Batson who transforms into a superhero adult after speaking the magic word SHAZAM. It is an acronym formed by names of gods and historical figures of which come from the powers of the character: the wisdom of Solomon, strength of Hercules, stamina of Atlas, power of Zeus, courage of Achilles and speed of Mercury. It is basically another Superman.
The character was created in 1939 by C. C. Beck and Bill Parker for Fawcett Comics (DC purchased it in 1972), and was known as the Captain Marvel or Captain Marvel. Three decades later, the publishing house Marvel created their own “Captain Marvel” and registered the name; the identity of this other character then passed to a woman, becoming one of the superheroínas more emblematic of the House of Ideas. In the cinema we are going to see the face of Brie Larson.

Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke have been busy writing the script for ‘Shazam’ that you have between hands Sandberg, director that until now, I had only made horror stories: ‘Never turn off the light’ (‘Lights Out’) and ‘Annabelle: Creation’. It is the second producer of the genre that tab Warner for his cinema of superheroes after trust James Wan to the spin-off of ‘Aquaman’.
But perhaps the most striking thing about this project is that, in principle, is not includes Dwyane Johnson. Apparently, the idea of Warner is that Sandberg to direct a film about the origins of Shazam and later to make another feature film focused on Black Adam, to finally rolling a confrontation between the two. An idea risky that they can explode in your face if ‘Shazam’ is not the box-office success that they expect.
The making of ‘Shazam’ will begin in February, and the premiere is scheduled for 2019 (for now no specific date). What do you think of the actor chosen to head the cast?
