Djimon Hounsou Cast As The Wizard In Shazam!

Published

on

Djimon Hounsou has returned for another comic book movie.

EW reports that Hounsou was cast as the Wizard in DC’s Shazam!. Hounsou last comic appearance was in James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy as Korath the Pursuer, a role the actor is still slated to reprise in next year’s Captain Marvel.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, the film stars Zachary Levi and his totally real biceps as Billy Batson, a 14-year-old imbued with the powers of a god (Asher Angel will be taking on the actual 14-year-old part of that equation). Hounsou’s character—who first popped up in the pages of All Star Comics in 1947—is a 3000-year-old mystic who grants Billy his powers.

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).
