The film stars Zachary Levi as the adult superhero version of Billy Batson (aka Shazam). The young version of Billy Batson, played by Asher Angel, magically transforms into the superhero (played by Levi) anytime he says his name. Hounsou will be playing the role of the 3000-year-old wizard who gifts Billy Batson with his magical powers.
In addition to Levi and Angel, Shazam! also stars Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, and Djimon Hounsou along with The Walking Dead‘s Cooper Andrews. Shazam! will hail from director David F. Sandberg (Lights Out) with a script by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. Peter Safran is producing.
The film will be landing in theaters on April 5, 2019.
