Adjust Comment Print

According to THR, Warner Bros. will release the super movie on April 5, 2019 where it now has no competition. Shazam will be the next film produced in the DC Cinematic Universe before Flashpoint, Batgirl and Suicide Squad 2. "Shazam!" centers on DC Comics character Billy Batson (Levi) who becomes Captain Marvel, the world's mightiest mortal, when he says the magic word "Shazam!". The film has also reportedly cast Mark Strong (The Kingsman franchise) as its as-yet-unidentified villain and has David F. Samberg (Lights Out) as director. Asher Angel will play Billy Batson while Dylan Grazer (It) will play Billy's best friend.

Despite all of the recent executive shake-ups at Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, the studios are moving ahead with the long-in-development Shazam! movie, starring Zachary Levi from Chuck as the title character.

Clark Estates Inc increased Twenty First Centy Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA) stake by 208,700 shares to 1.16M valued at $30.54M in 2017Q3. Several other institutional investors have also sold shares of the company. 106 funds opened positions while 696 raised stakes.

Ian Chen and Jovan Armand also co-star. It's like Superman meets Big, and that's just so fun. "It's not glum, and like, 'Oh, I have to save the world again.' So I think it's all really gravy". Zachary Levi recently expressed his wish to have a Wonder Woman cameo in the movie.

"Wonder Woman, because she's awesome". She's a mom. And I'm like, 'You seem like you're grounded and cool, and you're Wonder Woman, and you rock.' And I think it would be really amusing to have the 14-year-old Billy Batson inside of Shazam that's really awkward around this lovely Amazonian. The April date should be a solid landing spot for Shazam!
